Calculus is the study of change, in the same way that geometry is the study of shape and algebra is the study of operations and their application to solving equations. Studies in calculus are gateways to other, more advanced courses in mathematics devoted to the study of functions and limits, broadly called mathematical analysis. Calculus has widespread applications in science, economics, and engineering and can solve many problems for which algebra alone is insufficient.
