# Calculus / First Semester - Limits, Continuity, Derivatives

PatrickJMT

This play list should be pretty much in order with the way many people will see material in the class. Of course, not all classes are the same, so some of my videos may be out of order with your particular class. If you are looking for a particular topic, you are also encouraged to do an individual search on that topic as well, as I may have left a few videos out on accident.
