Welcome to the video page for The Calculus Lifesaver. Here you can access streaming and downloadable videos of lectures given by the author, Adrian Banner. Most of the examples come from The Calculus Lifesaver.

Please note that these lectures were originally given as review sessions for the Princeton introductory calculus courses MAT103 and MAT104 during the 2006/7 academic year. As a result, some of the topics are covered out of order, and some sections of The Calculus Lifesaver aren't covered at all. Each lecture lasts for about 2 hours. We hope that you find them useful!
