See me roar.

In its modern sense, calculus includes several mathematical disciplines. Most commonly, it means the detailed analysis of rates of change in functions and is of utmost importance in all sciences. It is usually divided into two (closely related through the [[fundamental theorem of calculus]]) branches: [[differential calculus]] and [[integral calculus]].

The first, differential calculus, is concerned with finding the instantaneous rate of change (or derivative) of a function's value with respect to changes in its argument (roughly speaking, how much the value of a function changes with a small change in its argument). This derivative can also be interpreted as the slope of the function's graph at a specific point.

The second branch of calculus, integral calculus, studies methods for finding the integral of a function. An integral may be defined as the limit of a sum of terms which correspond to areas under the graph of a function. Considered as such, integration allows us to calculate the area under a curve and the surface area and volume of solids such as spheres and cones.
