This course is an introduction to the ideas and techniques of one-variable calculus, intended for students who
are interested in science and mathematics.

Most courses in calculus emphasize computation; their goal is to teach you how to calculate derivatives and integrals
and how to use these computations in problems.

We also care about being able to compute, but our main focus is in understanding the ideas: how they originated,
what they mean, and how to work with them to see more deeply into the mathematical and physical world.

A secondary theme of the course is the universality of calculus as a mathematical tool, and we will see examples
of how to apply these ideas in both familar and unexpected situations.
