**Calculus** is the study of how things **change**: a skydiver falling to the Earth, temperature cooling as the Sun sets, radioactive isotopes decaying, water flowing down a river. In this class, we use **functions** to describe quantities such as position, temperature, population, and velocity.

The **derivative** of a function f(x) at a point x=a is the **limit**
$$
f'(a) = \lim_{x \to a} \frac{f(x) - f(a)}{x - a}
$$
The derivative measures how the function f(x) is **changing** at the point x=a. This class is about functions, derivatives and how quantities change.

The UBC Scientific Software Seminar is inspired by Software Carpentry and its goal is to help students, graduates, fellows and faculty at UBC develop software skills for science. See the UBCS3 GitHub repositories.

I am an instructor in the Department of Mathematics at UBC. I love being in the classroom teaching anything from calculus to number theory, and I also enjoy programming in Python, MATLAB, and JavaScript.
