Differentiation and integration considered by all scientists throughout the ages as one of the best sciences that guided the mind of man over all times The fields of the use of calculus are very wide. It enters into many fields and are not limited to specific people or to those who use it only. But to almost all human beings. Here are some examples of its ...

I think if you have a job/task where you need to do this conversion routinely (e.g. moving between two different data sets), than it makes sense to just have this small conversion factor memorized. Derive it once and then practice with it a lot and just have it in ready access memory as a known quantity (like sin of 30 degrees). But in the likely case you ...

Ibrahim: I would not think of it as either/or. Really, you should be able to understand and use the concepts in various ways. Algebraic symbol manipulation, "word problems" (to include not just physics, but chem, econ, business, bio, etc.), as well as graphical views. Perhaps even other conceptions (e.g. 500+ years ago, algebra was less ...

You have asked two very different questions. I'll leave the differential equations for someone else. There is one particular application of integration which is my favorite last problem to do in Calc I. (We got behind this semester, and I was very sad not to have time for this. It feels like a perfect grand finale to me.) You probably learned the formula for ...
