At its core, MIT's Department of Mathematics explains, calculus is “the study of how things change.” It is an important area of study, the department notes, because “it provides a way for us to construct relatively simple quantitative models of change, and to deduce their consequences.”
There are many resources available online to help you learn more about calculus and its concepts. Following is a collection of 88 calculators separated by skill level and type.
