The history of mathematics is an important subject. It gives a context
in which to view the many results that one learns in
math classes. Furthermore it shows that mathematics is, first and
foremost, a human activity. By looking at the historical development of
Calculus we see that, like all mathematics, is not a careful
march down a wellcleared highway, but a journey into a strange
wilderness, where the explorers often get lost. If you fnd yourself
struggling to understand the concepts introduced in this course, then you
are in good company. Many of the greatest minds in mathematics struggled
with these same concepts over a period of hundreds of years.
