Calculus, originally called infinitesimal calculus or "the calculus of infinitesimals", is the mathematical study of continuous change, in the same way that geometry is the study of shape and algebra is the study of generalizations of arithmetic operations.

Differential Calculus cuts something into small pieces to find how it changes.

Integral Calculus joins (integrates) the small pieces together to find how much there is.

Anything dealing with derivatives or integrals.

Dividing things into an infinite number of infinitely small pieces that adds up to a number.

Calculus deals with rates of change. Calculus finds the slopes of curves at any given point.
