Mathematics deals with the logic of shape, quantity and arrangement. Mathematics is all around us, in everything we do. It is the building block for everything in our daily lives, including mobile devices, architecture (ancient and modern), art, money, engineering, and even sports.
Calculus is a branch of mathematics that involves the study of rates of change. No objects—from the stars in space to subatomic particles or cells in the body—are always at rest. Indeed, just about everything in the universe is constantly moving. Calculus plays a crucial part in determining how these particles, stars, and matter actually move and change in real time. Calculus is used in a multitude of fields, including physics, engineering, economics, statistics, and medicine.
