Calculus is a branch of mathematics, developed from algebra and geometry. Calculus focuses on rates of change (within functions), such as accelerations, curves, and slopes. The development of calculus is credited to Archimedes, Leibniz and Newton; lesser credit is given to Barrow, Descartes, de Fermat, Huygens, and Wallis. Fundamental to calculus are derivatives, integrals, and limits.
