Pitfalls in teaching and learning calculus
Students studying calculus often make the same
mistakes. Similarly, teachers teaching calculus
have patterns of mistakes. It is much easier to tell how
things should not be done then how things should
be done. I collect in this document some "no-go's".
This is a living document and is expected to be updated
and adapted in the future.
