BLOCK VI. Manifestations

The ideas of calculus are used throughout science and technology. Previous blocks have introduced the mathematical ideas themselves, often illustrated with examples of real-world systems. In this Block, we will explore some of the ways calculus concepts are manifested in different fields and for different uses. Of course, each reader may find some fields more interesting than others. Think of this Block as a sampler containing a handful of the myriad ways that calculus concepts are used.
