RESEARCH GUIDES

Free resources for background material and support for Business Calculus MATH 1425

Apps (little software applications) allow you to customize your tablet to do the things you like to do. Some of the apps listed are free, while others are fee-based. Additionally, some apps are initially free, and then require in-app purchases if more features and functionality are desired. Listed, you will find some app recommendations we have come up with through trial, error, and our own experiences.

ACC Library Services does not endorse any fee-based apps nor it is liable for reimbursement of any apps paid for by patrons. Please refer to the Tablet Circulation Policy for further details.

This Lib-Guide identifies free resources that you can use for background material and support for your Business Calculus I MATH 1425. The resources are divided into two major categories: videos and written resources.

The guide is organized with by the four main topics in Business Calculus:

- Algebra Review
- Limits
- Continuity
- Derivates
- Integrals

Free resources abound on both the Internet and in libraries. The most difficult thing is to find what it is you truly need. The videos selected were those deemed to best cover the material in the MATH 1425 curriculum. While the same is true for the written resources, written resources tend to be lengthier and some cover more material than our MATH 1425 curriculum. The written material often has problems for you to try and some resources have the answers so you can check yourself.

At the end of each page there is a list of links that will take you to additional topics at the sources we have used.
