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.
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...
