This web page provides a basic introduction to differentials and integrals, written in simple language and accompanied by easily-understood examples. It covers topics such as the chain rule, log function, exponentials, polynomials, and trigonometric functions. Animations, still images, graphs, and diagrams are used to illustrate important concepts.

This tutorial is part of the PhysClips collection of web-based resources on introductory mechanics, electricity, and magnetism.
