Highlights of Calculus is a series of short videos that introduces the basics of calculus—how it works and why it is important. The intended audience is high school students, college students, or anyone who might need help understanding the subject.

The series is divided into three sections:
- Why Professor Strang created these videos
- How to use the materials

Highlights of Calculus
- Five videos reviewing the key topics and ideas of calculus
- Applications to real-life situations and problems
- Additional summary slides and practice problems

- Twelve videos focused on differential calculus
- More applications to real-life situations and problems
- Additional summary slides and practice problems

Special thanks to Professor J.C. Nave for his help and advice on the development and recording of this program.The video editing was funded by the Lord Foundation of Massachusetts.

great set of lectures. Gilbert Strangs pausing style allowed
the viewer to digest each stage. Wish I had Calculus at
School. This has revealed many of inner workings of my
favourite subject. Quantum physics. It also reveals the
limits of calculas when dealing with "infinities"
.I think Einstein knew this. Feynman must of realised it
too. Now I understand why String theory is so attractive
