Calculus is the bane of many people. Much of that is the approach taken when teaching it. It’s taught using mathematical theorems and proofs rather than physical examples. I’ve had a number of people assure me that calculus doesn’t have any real-world applications. They never had any examples given when they learned it and it was taught as a purely intellectual exercise. I seek to correct that here.
