The very powerful and very surprising fact at the heart of calculus is that integrals and derivatives are, in a sense, opposite to one and other. At first glance, rates of change and slope might seem completely unrelated to the area under a curve. In this tutorial, you will learn about the aptly named "Fundamental theorem of calculus".
