Calculus 

Welcome to the Algebra2go calculus resources page. Whether you are attending Saddleback College's calculus class (math 3A), taking a calculus class at another school, or need to refresh your math skills for a business or science class, we have tools that can help you. At this time we are building an array of three types of study materials: class notes, video lectures, and video worksheets. Whichever materials you decide to use, we would appreciate your feedback. Please let Professor Perez know what you liked and didn't like about these materials by sending him an e-mail.

Class Notes

Charlie isn't the best note-taker, but fortunately for him (and for us), his friends Veronica and Claudia are. They have loaned their comprehensive, hand-written notes on every lecture to Charlie and you can see them here. The notes are saved in the .pdf format. If your computer doesn't already read these files, you can download the free Adobe Acrobat Reader. If you want to download all the notes at once, click here

Video Worksheets

Every video is accompanied by a worksheet that mirrors the presentation so that you can work along with Charlie during the video. This kind of active learning process is a particularly good way to increase retention. The worksheets are saved in the .pdf format. If your computer doesn't already read these files, you can download the free Adobe Acrobat Reader.

Video Lectures

Perhaps our most popular tools are the video lectures. Attend Professor Perez's virtual classroom. In some cases Charlie may join in on the lecture. Each lecture focuses on a particular skill set which is vital for success. We are in the process of adding closed captioning to all of the videos. The videos are available in three formats.


Windows Streaming Media: These are .wmv videos. If your computer doesn't already play this format, you can download the free Windows Media Player to watch them. Mac users might find it easier to install the free Flip4Mac components for Quicktime.


YouTube: These are flash videos. If your computer doesn't already play this format, you can download the free Adobe Flash Player to watch them. YouTube videos can be played on a wide range of platforms such as computers, iPhones, Wii's, etc., but because of limitations on the length of these video clips some of the videos have had to be split into multiple parts. YouTube has recently added a feature which will translate the closed captioning into several dozen languages.


TeacherTube: These are flash videos similar to the YouTube versions, but TeacherTube videos do not need to be split into multiple parts. If your computer doesn't already play this format, you can download the free Adobe Flash Player to watch them.
