A Semester of Calculus in 20 Minutes?

Mar 27, 2009 by

Here’s a semester of Calculus boiled down to 20 minutes (Part I and Part II), brought to you by Professor Edward Burger.  Think of this as auctioneer meets Calculus.  Now seriously, I found this incredibly hard to concentrate on, but there were elements of these videos that I really liked (the paper cutouts that are similar to the CommonCraft style).

I don’t think there’s any way a student could learn Calculus from these videos, but I suppose it could help a student to see the big picture at the end.

Come to think of it, it might provide for a good scare at the beginning of the semester.  Watch this – then, if you can pass the final, you’re out of here.  If not, hang around and learn Calculus in slow motion!
