Publisher, 3Blue1Brown, Video, YouTube, YouTube Playlist

In this series of videos, Grant Sanderson (3Blue1Brown) want you to feel that you could have invented calculus for yourself.

In this first video, we see how unraveling the nuances of a simple geometry question can lead to integrals, derivatives, and the fundamental theorem of calculus.

Chapter 2 - The paradox of derivative
Chapter 3 - Derivative formulas through geometry
Chapter 4 - Visualizing the chain rule and product rule
Chapter 5 - Derivatives of exponentials
Chapter 6 - Implicit differentiation, what's going on here?
Chapter 7 - Limits
Chapter 8 - Integration and the fundamental theorem of calculus
Chapter 9 - What does area have to do with slope?
Footnote - Higher order derivatives
Chapter 10 - Taylor series
