Paul is legit.

Yes! Second only to Prof Leonard.

[deleted]

Wait Professor Leonard has linear algebra videos too?

He has a following on Patreon. He wants to do diff eq next I think.

I am aware about his DiffEq vids, but any sign on linear algebra?

Never used Paul’s online notes but would definitely recommend the MIT online videos and the 3b1b series on calculus, that’s how I self studied :)

Links?

Here you go mate: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZHQObOWTQDMsr9K-rj53DwVRMYO3t5Yr

thanks!

Do i need to know anything to understand 3blue1brown? I started it once and assumed it was beyond me and stopped

mmmm, 3b1b is really high-level conceptual stuff. IIRC there really isn't much in the way of actual mechanics shown in the Essence of Calculus series.

Watch MIT OCW videos for the mechanics of actually *doing* calculus, then follow up with 3b1b to solidify the concepts.

Exactly!

I’ve used/use them. They are good. Look for the cheat sheets.

Paul is Legit. PatrickJMT - Legit... KhanAcademy- legit

PatrickJMT got me through calc 1 and 2.

Paul's notes pretty much got me through my universities math program.

Absolutely yes! I used them frequently when doing Calc 1/2/3.

I’ve used them both as an undergrad and grad. They’re very useful for an immediate lookup.

Absolutely yes. First place I send my students

Yes they are comprehensive and do not skip steps without noting it. However, imo it geared towards folks who already have a fairly strong background and the notation can make you a little uneasy.

That said, I think it is an excellent supplement to lectures and a textbook

Paul is my dawg

My cal teacher recommended his notes

Oh yea. Helped me a lot.

Idk who that is but Professor Leonard absolutely saved my Calc 1 and Calc 2 grades

Yes I do. It is excellent. I have used that more than a decade ago and it still gets updated the last time I looked at it recently.

I recommend working trough it . It is easily generally very understandable and a very quick way to move forward to get into business. I think it works best as the first introduction to this type of material. But it has limitations. Somebody commented it is very thorough. It definately is , but it does not always go really heavy deep into theory . At that point look for more advanced stuff to deepen your understanding.

I recommend multiple books but maybe two or three is enough until you get into hoarding. Check out the free openstax books. Very good as well. Commercial book is college algebra by barnett and also the commercial the tan calculus series which is widely in use.

It’s a good review guide to look over before taking a test. But don’t depend on it.

I used these in my undergrad and recommend them to my students now.
