OT: Difference between Calculus 1 and 2?

Hey guys I'm going to take cal 1 this summer, and then cal 2, I'm wondering what the difference is? What am I expected to know in cal 1 that is different then in cal 2? If Cal 1 is essentially limits,continuity,derivatives and integrals, what's in cal 2?

If anyone could educate me I'd really appreciate it!

Cal 1 is mostly differentiation, Cal 2 is mostly integration. I say mostly because there are other things you learn not directly related to differentiation or integration (Reimann Sums, Summation, Factorials for example for Cal2)

They use the same book, Cal 1 is in many people's opinion far easier for some reason.

1 was much much much easier. I had a decent teacher for 1, didn't do any work and got top marks. Got a completely horrible teacher that was constantly confused and mostly couldn't complete his own exercices in 2, and had to work pretty hard for pretty random marks =/ But maybe it has to do with getting no help at all in class, who knows.

Calculus 1 = Montreal without Markov
Calculus 2 = Monreal with Markov

yeah mostly what posters above said... in calc 2 you're gonna do double and triple integration while calc 1 is mostly derivation, for me I thought both were equally easy, the teacher in calc 1 was barely speaking french I wouldn't understand a word so I didn't go to much courses but then in calc 2 the teacher was real good, and I did calc 2 during the summer I suspect them too put things way easier in the summer cause theirs like a bunch of people who's doing it for the 2nd time, or I dunno...

Cal 2 is the build-up to integration and integrating 2D and 3D surfaces. My teacher also included a brief intro to what was done in Inter-Cal in University: painful series and sequences.

So basically Cal 1 has no integration?

Yes. You need to understand derivatives before you can do integrals and anit-derivatives. And you also don't do sequences and series and in cal I either....

None whatsoever. MAYBE MAYBE MAYBE your Prof touches it for the last week.

The entire course is devoted to limits and how they follow up to derivatives.

Cal 1 is quite fun and not too tough... Cal 2 was a nightmare for me! My teacher was awful, I didn't really do any of the homeworks.... now i'm glad i've only touched integrals ounce in university!

It has integration but very basic and "direct" ones. You'll see more advanced integration techniques in calculus 2.

Cal 1 is pretty easy if you are confortable with math 514. If you know how to factor quadratic equations, divide polynomials, if you understand what a function is, it will be easy as pie.

Since my teacher wasn't counting presence, I've went to class only the first day and still managed to get 95/100.

Calculus 1 is much easier then 2 IMO but both were manageable if you put some effort into it. Though I guess I have a MUCH easier time than most with math and stuff so my opinion might be biased.

Well... if 1 and 2 serve as multipliers, then the difference is Calculus.

Cal 1: Habs play vs Islanders where Streit is injured
Cal 2: Habs play vs Atlanta
Cal 3: Habs play vs NJ or Boston (this year)

I remember very well that I got 98% in Cal 1, and I'm the lowest among my friends.

The difficulty is about the same which means they are both pretty easy.

I got a better grade in Cal.2, both above 90. Difference was that I was going to class and doing homeworks in Cal.2
