Calculus is the branch of mathematics that focuses on the study of curved lines and surfaces. It is divided into differential and integral calculus. There has been an ongoing debate in the history of science regarding its inventor. Be it Newton, Leibniz, or both, the methods used in calculus today are a combination of the contributions made by both these luminaries.

In this course, students will be introduced to the concept of gradients; differentiation applied to trigonometry; implicit and parametric differentiation; exponential and logarithmic functions; derivatives, chain, products, and quotient rules; stationary points; and basic and advanced integration with a focus on their applications in medicine. For optimal comprehension, students should have a high-school–level understanding of arithmetic and algebra.

Be it engineering, physics, chemistry, statistics and data science, astronomy, or medicine, calculus has a myriad of applications for each subject area. Furthermore, mathematical thinking is a very important virtue that any scientist, including physicians, should cultivate to achieve trustworthy observations.
