Abstract:

The focus of this webinar on High School (Grade 8 to 12) Calculus is to grasp the core concepts of the subject using vivid analogies and intuitive online tools, without getting lost in the mechanical definitions and unending algebraic calculations, so you can discover and admire the beauty of calculus itself without distraction, and experience the subject from the core.  To register, fill the registration form below. The last date for registration is 26 November 2021.

This is an intensive 2 hours and 15 minutes session, conducted online through the Zoom platform; intended towards teachers and motivated students seeking to explore calculus concepts in a completely new and refreshing way!

So, if you want to stay ahead of the curve, and have fun; just dive in.
