Calculus seems to be the most difficult part of mathematics to many who are learning higher level mathematics. Calculus has the power to explain everything from the periodicity of heartbeat to the planetary orbits. When a student learns Calculus, it seems tough because he/she is not knowing the real life applications of the concept and hence feel clueless about the concept.
