There are many types of software development that require high level mathematics such as graphics simulations and some types of machine learning.
We are helping people learn the mathematics they need by posting a series of college-level courses on the freeCodeCamp.org YouTube channel. Our latest free course is a complete 7-hour Calculus 2 course.
This course was created by Dr. Linda Green who teaches at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She has years of experience teaching Calculus 2 to undergraduate students.
Besides the video content, we have also included full course notes from Dr. Green as a link in the video description.
Below are all the Calculus 2 concepts you will learn about in this course.

We recommend you pull out some paper and a pencil and take physical notes – just like when you were back in a classroom.
This manual process of taking notes will help you better comprehend and retain these concepts, since Dr. Green moves fast and covers a lot of topics in a short time.
