This ebook provides a comprehensive introduction to fundamental concepts in calculus and their applications, covering all of Calculus 1 and some of Calculus 2. The book starts with functions and limits, followed by differential calculus, and then moves on to integral calculus and a brief discussion of differential equations. It ends with the complete solution for a sample exam based on the AP Calculus AB course. Videos for the topics covered in the ebook, along with practice problems, exercises and quizzes, are available in the interactive Wolfram U course Introduction to Calculus.
