This professor uploaded entire courses on youtube.com, including the entire calculus sequence.

A secant line isn't, under any circumstances the same with a tangent line. That is like saying 0.9 = 1

Professor Leonard did not make such a comment.

There exist certain functions for which a secant line and a tangent line can coincide.

He doesn't have to. The ads just run during intro and stop time.

Leonard is the best math teacher on youtube. Be glad that he decided to upload his math work to help students worldwide.

Taking notes is good - but I think solving them without looking at notes would be the real learning.

Are you ok???

We need to study notes BEFORE solving problems.


Make sense????

The way I learned as a student was to read the material in the textbook the night before the lecture, this way the lecture was not about things I knew nothing about, and it made more sense and I already had questions I could ask. During the lecture, I took no notes, and focused on the lecture rather than trying to scramble to write things down.

Then, when I did the assigned problems, I made certain I understood completely the derivation of all theorems used. While working the problems, I tried solving them in the most general way possible, so that I would then look at the behavior of the solutions at the boundaries, leading to insights regarding the behavior of the formulas. I always made sure to study for at least 3 hours for each hour spent in lecture.
