No proof for the theorems he just give us... not even an intuitive idea of why this is like that.

Hi Mr. Zhu. If I want to study AP Calculus BC by myself, do I need to watch all the AB courses first and then watch BC courses? Thank you

Hi, I recently completed pre-Calculus course and have decided to take AP Calculus AB this school year. The question is: in regard to summer preparation for AP Calculus, what can I do during the summer to prepare efficiently for such a hard math course? Also, is your lecture a legit way to self-study without background other than precal? (please note that basic trig fuctions and bearings are all we did in calss. Also note that I merely want to go over the concepts and maybe some problems in preparation.) Feel free to suggest other methods, books, etc., f you would like to share. Thank you.

A function is not necessarily a 1 to 1 function. A function is a relation where for every value in the domain, there is a unique value in the range. A 1 to 1 function is a function whose inverse is also a function, or a function that has a unique x for each y AND a unique y for each x.

This is an important distinction
