For Computer Geeks

## Calculus history :

The formal study of calculus started from the 17th century by well-known scientists and mathematicians like Isaac Newton and Gottfried Leibniz, although it is possible that it has been at use as early as the Greek era.

It is a mathematical discipline that is primarily concerned with functions, limits, derivatives, and integrals

## what is Calculus 1 ?

Calculus I typically covers differential calculus (in one variable),
plus related topics such as limits ,
Derivatives ,
Applications of differentiation ,
and Integrals.

## When do you use calculus in the real world?

In physics, calculus is used in a lot of its concepts.

Among the physical concepts that use concepts of calculus include motion, electricity, heat, light, harmonics, acoustics, astronomy, and dynamics.

In fact, even advanced physics concepts including electromagnetism and Einstein's theory of relativity use calculus.

In the field of chemistry, calculus can be used to predict functions such as reaction rates and radioactive decay.

Meanwhile, in biology, it is utilized to formulate rates such as birth and death rates.

In economics, calculus is used to compute marginal cost and marginal revenue
