Calculus & Analysis

Calculus is the branch of mathematics studying the rate of change of quantities and the length, area and volume of objects. With the ability to answer questions from single and multivariable calculus, Wolfram|Alpha is a great tool for computing limits, derivatives and integrals and their applications, including tangent lines, extrema, arc length and much more.
