Very Nice Supplement

First of all, MIT's OCW is a great resource and these taped lectures are awesome learning tools. I took Advanced Placement Calculus BC in high school and I'm reviewing for placements tests. I've found that this professor is a little bit difficult to follow at times and his notations and explanations are a little too "mathematical" in the sense that there is little discussion about the application of these techniques beyond mathematic academia--no "think of it like..." analogies. However, if you are even a little bit exposed to calculus, these lectures will really help you grasp the concepts better.

Good subject, mediocre teacher

I simultaneously love that MIT makes these lectures available and hate that David Jerison is the one they decided to film. He often leaves key steps out of fundamental proofs. He has a tendency to take a basically simple concept and introduce confusion simply by not bothering to explain key steps in a proof.

He’s kind of a crappy communicator, and I’m amazed they let him be the person who exposes students to their first taste of higher math. This kind of teacher can turn a student off of a subject for life.

Missing Videos

Some of the lectures are missing but I realized that was because those were exam days.
