    Why is Calculus 1 so damn hard? Does it get any easier?

    Seriously, I made an A in every single math class with ease up to Calculus 1 which is eating my as*hole from the inside at the moment. Got a 79 on my first test on limits, failed the 2nd test on derivatives along with 80% of the class, literally, he posted the grade scale. Doing crit. numbers, extrema, etc. right now and this is just not getting any easier at all, especially since I still have major trouble with hard derivs. I see so many people on the internet talking about how easy it is but I get the feeling those are the weird nerds in the back of the classroom who can't communicate with anyone. Does anyone have any similar stories about getting their ass kicked at first in Calc 1 and maybe overcoming this huge bump? I need some serious motivation right now because I'd hate to switch majors. I know business people have to take a certain "Calculus" course but believe me this is not that so only engineering/hard science majors respond.

    Calc 1 is the easiest, in my opinion. Calc 2 was the hardest for me to understand. Everything else after was easier for me.

    Math is all about practice.

    Calc 1 is easiest. Calc 2 is hardest. Calc 3 with multivariables is in between.

    Limits and derivatives are easy, but fuk related rates. To answer your question, no. my calc teacher even said calc 1 was the hardest for him. Was the first time I ever had to study in my life, calc 2 is easier

    calc 1 is fairly difficult at first because the concept is so new it's like building a base of calculus in your mind. then 2 is 2x as difficult.

    idk about 3+ but from what ive heard it gets easier

    In the same boat as you, just doing implicit differentiation. Got a 42% on my last exam (average was around 50%), thank the ****ing lord he drops your lowest exam.

    Khan academy helps, as does downloading other math books and reading/working through problems on there.

    You're thinking it's hard right now because it's so much piled on at the same time, but once you take a break and start back up, you'll look back and think it was easy. It's really not that hard, the only difficult part was related rates like a previous poster said, but you won't need that until higher leveled mathematics. You'll be fine brah

    Calc 3 was the easiest, calc 1 second hardest and calc 2 was unbelievably hard. But the most difficult was differential equations.

    Calculus becomes just about as easy as algebra once you do enough of it. It's just a new way of looking at numbers. Trust me in the future you'll look back on this and say it was easy as fuk cuzz.

    sounds like a ****ty professor tbh, I did great in calc and was expecting tough times going in, but i absolutely loved my teacher, and it was a female 1 year from retirement (old as fuarkkk), but she broke everything down to the most very basic steps.

    Average test score on Derivs. was 52%, he drops our lowest grade also but that still won't save a lot of people, maybe including me. Honestly never thought any Math course would kick my ass until now, very bad and helpless feeling. Khan Academy is cool but the problems he does seem so basic, if the tests were based on nothing but problems like his examples I would have nothing to worry about. PatrickJMT has helped me more than any math book or teacher has so far with it.

    If you're allowed a calculator, here's a tip when you just want to make sure the limit you got is correct.

    Say we're looking for lim x->3 of 2x/(x-3).

    This means we're looking at values as x APPROACHES 3. So plug in one value a tiny bit to the left of 3 and one a tiny bit to the right of 3. So I'd use x = 2.999 and x = 3.001.

    If you get two answers that are nearly the same, that's the limit.

    If you get a huge number, it means the limit is infinity or DNE; if you get two different answers, well then obviously left side and right side limits are different and thus, limit DNE.

    Calc 1 is a joke, i found calc 2 to be the hardest. But i will admit i started off with 70's in calc 1 just cause calculus requires you to think differently than the math done in previous years...towards the end i was getting 90's. Once you start wrapping your head around it, it'll get much easier op. Biggest thing is to do just do questions and the theory will make sense on its own, dont waste a lot of time reading and
    trying to make sense of the
    theorems. Everything will fall in place once you've done enough problems

    The latter half of Multi-variable calculus was killer.

    The first couple of single-variable calc were kinda hard, everything after was a breeze pretty much.

    I don't understand these calc1,2,3 labels btw.

    I thought calc 1 was the hardest. Once I got used to it Calc 2/3 just built right off of it.

    Calc 2 is harder than Calc 1. Calc 1 is pretty easy. If you're taking this in college, especially one heavy on engineering, don't pay attention to your grade, pay attention to the average. While it's a bit odd for a class as early as calc I, a lot of math/engineering professors just fail everyone and then straighten out the grades later. If you're above average I'm sure you'll pass, probably get at least a B.

    this.

    I took calc 1 last semester and it was my hardest class, passed with a mid C. This semester im in calc 2 and I feel like its a lot easier than calc 1 now that I understand the concepts.

    Derivatives are the easiest thing in math... There is literally a set of rules that you can follow and you will get the correct answer every time. You don't even have to think about it. Algebra can be much much harder, as it requires intuitive thinking on how to solve a problem.

    The problem is, calculus makes you go through a bunch of bullshiit stuff just to describe to you what exactly a derivative is. That is the hardest part imo. That and L'Hospital's rule, infinite series.

    Brah that's the EASY part of Calc 1 since it's all new so the problems shouldn't be difficult. You are being introduced to new concepts but they shouldn't be hard to grasp. If you're already in danger of getting a D/F i would just drop the course since you would have to kill related rates/optimization (hardest part of calc 1) at the end to get a decent grade.

    btw i'm a bio major, got a B in both calc 1 and 2 so not being a math person is no excuse

    Dude Calc 1 is soo easy. I'm a physics major, but it's seriously easy. Calc 2 on the other hand is pretty complex, something you should DEFINITELY study a LOT of. I LOVE math, but it almost kicked my ass. Calc 3 I heard is just like Calc 1 but in 3 dimensions.

    By the way, related rates IS the hardest part of Calc 1, but I still aced those questions because I practiced until it became second nature. Optimization is nothing more than finding a min and max, piece of cake.

    Haha but srs just lookup PatrickJMT on YouTube. I took calc 1 but it was a joke because the teacher was an idiot. I got a C- in calc 2 so I had the option of retaking. I did and discovered his channel and got an A. He's amazing, just make sure you practice until you can do it without looking

    I'm going to give the classes 2 ratings first is how difficult the course is in my opinion and the 2nd is how difficult the course is in relation to other previous courses that you have taken.

    Calc 1: 5/10 with a ramp difficulty of 7/10
    Calc 2: 8/10 and 8.5/10 (the first real challenge)
    Calc 3: 7.5/10 and 7/10

    DE: 11/10 and 10/10 (angus destroyer)

    Calc 2 is the hardest.

    Calc 1 was hard too though, big jump from precal
