    Calculus is tough to explain in a mathematical sense. My first thought was that it is the study of motion and how objects move, but that is mechanical rather than mathematical. It involves derivatives and integrals and is used in a large part of mathematics.

    Actually, it's basicaly the study of rate of change. I can definitely explain some concepts, but there are prerequisites.

    You'll need to have a solid understanding of algebra, and of geometry, to learn the more basic concepts of calculus.

    Calculus is the study of change, with the basic focus being on Rate of change Accumulation

    Calculus is the study of change, with the basic focus being on Rate of change Accumulation pic... In both of these branches (Differential and Integral), the concepts learned in algebra and geometry are extended using the idea of limits. Limits allow us to study what happens when points on a graph get closer and closer together until their distance is infinitesimally small (almost zero). Once the idea of limits is applied to our Calculus problem, the techniques used in algebra and geometry can be implemented.

    its basically about rate of change and accumulation differential calculus deals with the former and integration th latter
