Calculus summary
When x changes by h, the ratio of a change in F(x) to the change in x that caused it, is equal to (F(x+h)−F(x))/h. As h approaches 0, the limit of the ratio becomes a value. A function that maps x to this limit is called the derivative of F(x). ｢(F(x+h)− ...

○ Many students quit math entirely when they get up to this point, mainly out of fear. ○ We will get to some of those in due time as well. ○ What challenge could possibly have necessitated the development of calculus?

03 Rates of Change
Galileo had already discovered some years prior that the distance traveled by a falling object is represented by a function of time. Newton wondered how one could calculate the velocity of the object at any particular instance during the fall.

18 The fundamental theorem of calculus
If f is Riemann integrable on [a,b] and F(x) is the integral of f(t) from a to b then F is continuous on [a,b]. Furthermore, if f is continuous on [a,b] then F is differentiable on [a,b] and F' = f.
