This page is a collection of resources outside the class for University of Oregon calculus students. There is not much here now; more may be added in the future. Except as noted, the information is from 2013, and was assembled from information collected for Math 251. Please let me know if you find other useful resources!
Warning: The resources listed here have mostly not been checked, and in many cases I don't know how reliable they are.

The site https://www.youtube.com/user/mathbff ("Algebra and calculus help from an MIT graduate") has about 35 videos, mostly between 15 and 20 minutes each, on an assortment of topics including many of the computations we do in Math 251 (including several kinds of limits, using several of the differentiation rules, and finding tangent lines). The version at http://mathbff.com includes text descriptions of the contents of the videos. Ones for Math 252 are mixed with ones for Math 251 and for precalculus. This site was recommended by a student several years ago (as of 2013), who reports that there is more depth than at the Khan Academy, but that the emphasis is still more on how to carry out algorithms, with less about the meaning of what one is doing. I saw nothing about the more complicated applications of integration that we will do in the later part of the course. As for the Khan Academy, please tell me about your experiences with this site.
As with the Khan Academy, the website probably requires JavaScript, which is a security hazard, and probably also cookies, which are a privacy hazard.
