Comments: The two calculus courses are providing me with a fantastic review of background materials, when necessary, for topology which I am studying now. Professor Gross is a master teacher. I am astounded by the clarity, organization, and compactness of his lectures, and his lovely board-work. I enjoy his homespun humor which is often at the same time profound. (I am a professor of philosophy at The Catholic University of America.)

Comments: I came across your lectures while searching through YouTube for lectures on differential equations. I was amazed not just by the delivery and the enthusiastic way you presented the lectures but also by your great communication skills. The lucid manner you explained mathematical concepts was phenomenal. Then afterwards, while reading criticisms of the Khan Academy, I came across a reference to your website and a reply you made to a previous comment by one Goldenberg. Since then, I have read your responses to various sites that write about your videos. What diligence and passion for teaching! I must say you are a highly polite man. Thank you Prof. Herb Gross.

Comments: Dear Prof. Gross: My 16 year old who has math aptitude but no interest saw me viewing your course on Single Variable Calculus. Within 10 minutes, he was hooked, as I had been, with a subject I last studied as a chem major in 1964-5. If we had teachers like you teaching STEM courses, teens would beat down the doors of their high schools to enroll. Bravo. And thank you.

Comments: I found Prof Gross' course "Calculus Revisited" while taking another MIT course. It's the best course on calculus I've seen on-line or attended in person. The analytical approach supported by geometric interpretations is brilliantly done and gives meaning to abstract symbols, their manipulations and to math concepts. I highly recommend it. Although I am not a teacher, I do tutor my grandchildren, have been since Kindegarten. And, I hope to start tutoring 5 children in the neighborhood ranging in grade level from kindergarten to 4th grade. The thoughts and advice on teaching math found on Prof. Gross' website will I believe (based on my experience with "Calculus Revisited"), help enormously in making math come alive for these children, and who knows, possibly lead them on a course which otherwise might not have been an option.

Well, that's been my experience with Mathematics until now. Anyway, from one left handed person to another; I love your style Mr Gross. Why do I like your style? Because you explain why; that's why.

Comments: This message of thanks is directly to Professor Gross ,whose videos on Calculus Revisited, has made my retirement, a fantastic opportunity to revisit, mathematics that I learned in Graduate School, back in early seventies. The world is a much richer and fulfilling place because of teachers that educate and inspire. In my humble opinion, professor Gross is indeed such teacher. Abundance of respect and appreciation from this quarter.

Comments: I have just started your OCW Calculus Revisited course. At last I got into MIT! In 1973, when I worked in Cambridge putting my then husband through Harvard Law, I took my courage in hand, went to the MIT campus and asked for an application. They wouldn't even give me a catalogue since they only took students right out of high school at that time. I have had a good life but it might have been a quite different one if MIT had considered me then. How good that these courses are now available online. So thank you so much for this course: you are an excellent teacher. I send you a virtual hug!

Comments: Dear Prof. Gross, Thank you for your amazing teaching style and your efforts. Your video lectures on Complex variables has profoundly assisted me with understanding what I used to believe to be convoluted complicated math when I went to engineering school some 18 years ago. Using your lecture videos, reading through notes and exercises, I was able to completely follow the material and I now understand what I just blindly assumed to be "Rules" much more clear and deeper.

Comments: Greetings Professor Gross, I'm not sure if I'm sending this is the correct place. I wanted to first express my gratitude for all the teaching resources you've provided. The way you teach mathematics is truly unique and as far as I've looked (and I've looked quite a lot), unparalleled. I was a "mathphobe", and now I am a computer engineering student who enjoys math. I really would like your resources to reach others and make the difference it's made for me. With regards to this, I have merged the resources into entire books and am in the process of bookmarking the chapters and sections. Would you think it helpful if I were to send them to you when I am finished? I also wanted to upload your books onto a sharing site called scribd.com. Is this okay with you? Sincerely, Stephan

Comments: I'm excited to tell you that you have saved another one of my clients’ “lives” The latest is a very bright young man, 16 years of age, whom I hope you will one day meet. He is at a therapeutic school, but it had no positive effect in helping him to overcome his “math aversion” problem. He would do every subject with enthusiasm, except, he just couldn't "do math." All of the incentives in the education world, all the disincentives for shirking his mathematical duties, could not get Seth to feign enthusiasm for the subject.The school, which has classes of two, three or four students, finally got him an individual tutor. So now he was trapped. He couldn't get out of math work, but still he couldn't learn. Last week I emailed the academic head of the school and gave her the story of your website and how it helped many others. I told them that if they hunted around they might find some of your older videos, and might be entertained by a wonderful raconteur while considering a different way of looking at math...The head of school says: "I love it" and will pass it along to the tutor. The client in question has already looked at the website, and he would like me to tell you that it gives him hope and that he likes it!.. But most of all, and what brings me the greatest happiness is that he says: "Marsha, Herb is Really Funny. I love the way he talks." And in my mind what he says is the highest compliment of all. It's the total YOU that makes this unique approach so remarkable.I wanted you to know that he is quite a bit less despondent today, and part of that is the hope that you've given him.

Comments: Dear Herb, I am watching your algebra videos, and I went over the algebra PowerPoint files. I think they are excellent! I have seen so much non-sense printed as algebra that I was pleasantly surprised and thrilled to see your treatment of the subject in the videos. I have tried for many years to convey mathematical concepts to my students in ways that make logical sense, and at the same time satisfy some intellectual need. Your teaching method creates intellectual needs (dots?), and logically connects them in ways that leaves no ambiguity. In your lessons, you create “goldilocks” amount of pedagogical confusion, and then, skillfully, lead the learner out of it to understanding! Great job! I like to use your materials in a honors algebra course ( I talked to the chairperson about your work, and he okayed offering a honors algebra course in the fall). Please let me know your conditions of using your videos, PowerPoints, etc.. Thanks.

Comments: Herb Gross must be considered among the premiere mathematics instructors in the United States. Even today, we'll into retirement, he still takes time out of his busy schedule to assist people struggling with various math topics. I highly recommend Professor Gross' materials. I jgive a particular plug to his materials from the "Calculus Revisited" series. Don't let the fact that the videos were filmed in 1971 turn you away. This is first-rate instruction, which will help anyone learn Calculus old school. I have considered many sources (especially on the internet) and Professor's Gross' materials are second to none!

Comments: Dear Professor Gross, Just wanted to let you know that I started listening to your arithmetic course today. I have just listened to the preface and it is the first time I have ever felt that someone understood what confused me about maths. Your differentiating between the concept and the language was so meaningful for me. You have really given me hope that I can work hard, enjoy and really grow through your lectures to understand the mysterious, but uniquely beautiful language of maths. Strangely enough, the way I found your lectures was that I thought it would be great to name a maths book "maths as a second language". I typed it into google and found your website. Now I am very excited to go through your course and see how much I can learn. Thanking you in advance

Comments: What an extraordinary inspirational man! This work by Professor Gross is priceless. A professor of Mathematics from arguably the world's pre-eminent technical University, so humble that elementary arithmetic is taught with as much vigour and passion as he does with advanced calculus. All this whilst taking the road-less-travelled by expounding on the "why" of maths to aid learning. Thank you Professor Gross.

Comments: I was entertained by a student question, "what is this Thomas book Prof. Gross keeps talking about?" I still have mine from 18.01 and 18.02 from 1958-59. I came across your "Calculus Revisited" pumping up for our Fall semester Circuits class. I graduated in Course V but, after all, Calculus is Calculus. I am a retired Medical Doctor but help teach the Circuits and Electrical Devices class as an Adjunct at Midwestern State University School of Mechanical Engineering here in Texas. I am going to recommend this series for my students, many of whom have a very rudimentary Calculus background. And I will hang on to my Thomas! Great course - even in black and white :)

Comments: Prof. Gross you have completely changed my view of calculus. Your lectures are engaging, clear and profoundly insightful. The way you present an idea from different perspective gives us a better understanding of the concepts. I like many other students am grateful to you for sharing your knowledge with us.

Comments: I love math but it has never been reciprocal. Couldn't get on with it like I wished that I could. But, I never forgot seeing a few of your lectures on WGBH Boston in 1970 and being fascinated by all that crazy wonderful language on your blackboards. Despite my math phobia I just had to copy down the board fast as possible and was having so much fun, because I guess I pretended to be a brain. Anyway, glad to have found the prof back on youtube and reminiscing to the 70s. There is something special about how you teach and how you are always sure to smile often.

Comments: Dear Herb, It is a tragedy that these videos have been hidden for the greater part of 40 years. Although I have graduated with an engineering degree and went as far as Calc III, I succeeded through memorization and heavy reliance on "cheat sheets" where professors allow students to bring one page of written notes, materials, and equations. Watching your videos have re inspired and brought about feelings and emotions of wonder that I haven't felt since I was 8 years old. If humans ever develop the technology for immortality our best candidate would have to be you for your ability to teach and breakdown information. I can't tell you how happy I am to have discovered your videos and how much I enjoy starting my day over a bowl of cereal and one of your videos. Technology is pretty amazing huh? Who would have thought that a single human being could impact so many other people without ever meeting them. Warmest regards, Michael

Comments: I'm starting with MIT OCW "Calculus Revisited" right now for refreshing and bridging gaps. Prof. Gross remembers me of my fantastic first teachers. Clarity, order, depth... Even those beautiful and clean blackboards are a pleasure to the eye, much more than those computer-made slides of our days. Being a professor myself, I'm really captivated by these lectures, the style of teaching: nothing but the subject matter and the engagement of the lecturer shedding light on difficult concepts as if they were the most natural thing in the world, step by step, peacefully and totally to the point. An unexpected treasure. Many thanks!

Comments: I saw Herb on the MIT open courseware videos. After watching several videos, I found myself almost giddy-- and that's saying something. His organizational, presentational, and communication skills are not just top notch, they surpass those of any professor I have ever had. Most instructors teach to the book, or give you the rules with added explanation. Dr. (or Mr.?) Gross infuses mathematical wisdom along the way, seamlessly tying one concept to another, expanding upon trains of thought--which would be self contained snippets under the tutelage of ordinary men--into mellifluous threads of understanding that paint what feels like a complete picture. You are left with a tapestry of knowledge as opposed to a few pieces of fabric. Compared to him, regular lectures feel 1 dimensional and curt. He is a gift not just to mathematical education, but to the entire educational profession. Thank you Herb.

Comments: Professor Gross, John Downey at BRCC copied us on your email to him just now. Our math faculty have been talking more and more about math as a language. Your projects are very interesting. My interest so far has been mostly about how linguistic metaphors help us understand math. But I sense that it's just a short step from that to thinking of math as its own language. BTW, I love the organization you founded, AMATYC. It's been a lovely place for me to present all my crazy ideas! I just got done serving a couple years as a VMATYC regional vice president. And, BTW, nice web site.

Comments: I came upon Calculus Revisited in my web-search for learning information. As an older returning student, I allowed calculus to recently defeat me in the classroom. Professor Gross's 1970 lecture series is helping me to gain comprehension of "high school math + the concept of limit." I am using home study effort. The lectures are truly well done, and remain in quite good shape.

Comments: I had trouble with my math homework today. So I went on this website to learn a little bit more without memorizing. Our school teaches us how to get the right answer but we don't learn why all of that works. When you don't understand it, it's easy to make a mistake and not even know you have made one. I really liked the powerpoint. It was on fractions I've always known how to do fractions but now I have a greater understanding of what they mean. The website is great and I will be on it a lot as go through school.
