Thank you very much for these videos of mathematics. They are excellent

Comment3 Majed, July 12, 2011 at 11:18 a.m.:

Thanks for MIT OCW for this most invaluable source of academic knowledge…. Please could you add civil engineering video lectures

Comment4 Hensly Jemio, August 18, 2011 at 5:21 p.m.:

These video lectures are great to review some topics that are the bare bone of real engineering..

Comment5 Gurinder Singh, September 19, 2011 at 5:07 p.m.:

this is an excellent stuff for learning calculus

Comment6 Woo young kim, October 4, 2011 at 1:58 p.m.:

I always think OCW is give the best way to learn about calculus

Comment7 Habibolla_Latifizadeh, October 4, 2011 at 9:49 p.m.:

Thank you so much for your sincerely endeavor
(of all lovely students and Professors).
And it is worth mentioning that with this effort every course will be pleasurable for students who will want to

Thank you very much professor for these wonderful well explained lectures. I am from the UK and did maths about 20 years ago, though had difficulty understanding calculus (vague teachers). I've understood diff and integration better over the last few weeks than I did when I was a high school. Once again absolutely awesome and a pleasure to see you at work. Thanks

Thank you v.v.much for this wonderful way of educating people. Although I am a microbiology student but I was always interested to study maths and OCW provided me a way to do so.

Comment11 Chole, June 9, 2012 at 7:40 a.m.:

Very good, i very like you

Comment12 Arnab Mukherjee, September 11, 2012 at 4:41 p.m.:

The effort to make education accessible to all is truly commendable.I was wondering if MIT could contrive some means of offering credit to students who take its OCW courses regularly.

Comment16 Milad Nejati, April 28, 2013 at 5:52 p.m.:

I think this is a chance for us to learn and study this lessons with MIT prof. and St.

Comment17 pierre duval, July 26, 2013 at 11:09 a.m.:

i am a disabled artist that need the visual to absorb the material.
being an artist i fell in love with math in that it is elegant and as well can be graphed.
to me it's better than music when i sit and paint at the easel.

thank you so very much

Where can I find downloadable versions of Lectures beyond Lecture 7 for the single variable calculus course?

Comment19 Sam Ward, March 10, 2014 at 8:22 p.m.:

As a former college teacher I find your lectures to be very inspiring. Thank you.

Comment20 arif hussain, July 2, 2015 at 8:46 a.m.:

sir how we show a relation among limit,derivative and integration?

Comment21 Jyosna, June 16, 2018 at 4:52 p.m.:

Hi Today I was watching MIT 18.01 Single Variable Calculus, Fall 2007 and MIT 18.02 Multivariable Calculus, Fall 2007 on youtube today in the afternoon Indian standard time. But now in the evening vidoe's displaying message 'It is not available in your country i.e. India'. Request you to make it available in India.
