### TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO CALCULUS

Exceptional course. Fantastic explaining by Professor Easdown, I wish more teachers were as clear as he is, and as kind and thoughtful towards their students. Many, many thanks in case you see this.

An amazing course with detailed explanation of fundamental techniques in Calculus. I would highly recommend other students trying this course before taking any advanced studies in Calculus.

I took this course to brush up as I took calculus 3 many years ago. I am very pleased with the instruction and the course overall although it has been a humbling experience! ;) Thank you!

Excellent course! Prof Easdown makes the material very interesting with real world examples and historical context. I think you will love this course even if math is not your fav subject.
