Wikibooks has a book on the topic of Calculus.

Calculus uses methods originally based on the summation of infinitesimal differences.

It includes the examination of changes in an expression by smaller and smaller differences.



Osnabrück Calculus


Mathematics for Applied Sciences (Osnabrück 2023-2024)/Part I is a course for beginners at the University of Osnabrück. It covers logical foundation, sets, mappings, algebraic structures like fields and polynomials, the basics of analysis like sequences, continuity, differentiability, primitive functions and the basics of linear algebra like vector spaces, bases, linear maps, eigenvalues. While course has been taught many times, this is a textbook -- not an online course. The lectures dealing with calculus are as follows.

Contents • Logic and argumentation• Quantifiers and induction• Sets and mappings• Fields• Complex numbers• Polynomials• Approximation and convergence• Completeness• Series• Continuity• Intermediate value theorem• Exponential function• Trigonometry• Differentiability• Mean value theorem• The number  • Taylor series• Integration• Fundamental theorem of calculus• Rules for integration



Wikibooks has a well developed Calculus Book in 10 sections which this Wikiversity web course should mirror to maximize resources.
