These video reviews of basic Calculus concepts were created by ALTC peer educators Chinwe Orie and Addie Duncan.

Episode 1: L'hopital Rule 1

The problem is the limit of sin(x)/x with x going to 0 and uses squeeze theorem to do this problem, then introduces an easier method (L’hopital’s rule) to solve this problem in a flash.

Episode 2: L'hopital Rule 2

The problem is for a more complex limit: ln(3x)/x^2 with x going to infinity.

Episode 3: L'hopital Rule 3

The problem is for an even more complex limit: x ln(x + (3/x)).

Episode 1: U-Substitution

Episode 2: The Fundamental Theorem of Calculus

Episode 3: Area Between Curves
