Whoever is responsible for this website is absolutely brilliant. I don’t even have words to tell you how fantastic your website is and how much it has helped me. The person(s) who did this website is a perfectionist, because it is extremely thoughtful and, well, perfect. It challenges you so that you truly understand the material, it is thorough, and it leaves no questions unanswered.
Can I donate a little something? Sure, I am a poor student right now, but I feel a DUTY to give something for the immense gratitude I have for people who can put together an educational tool like this and so generously offer it for nothing. I am a much older student trying to get a master’s in statistics, so I can appreciate this website much more than the younger folks who take a lot of this type of online material for granted. I should not even compare it to other online math help sites. It truly is in a class of its own, and you should be very proud of this site.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
Just a quick thank you. I did indeed ace calc2 last semester, thanks in no small part to your website. I took the class online, and it was very much a "you’re on your own, good luck" type of affair. Your website was absolutely invaluable to me, and I recommend it to everyone I encounter who is struggling with calculus. Thanks again!
Hi! I recently found the 17calculus website and shared it with a friend and we have been screaming about it for a while because it helps immensely. We really appreciate how easy it is to follow, especially with the breakdown of questions and answers and practice exams. We have a infinite series test tomorrow morning and all of the explanations of which test to use, not to use, and why are super helpful and really make us confident about how we'll do tomorrow. Thank you to the 17calculus team for this great resource!! It's a great addition to what I do in class and it really has made me confident for my test tomorrow.
