What do Usain Bolt and calculus have in common? Using Usain Bolt as an example of distance traveled over a period of time, Sal shows why you need differential calculus to answer the question of how fast something is traveling at a specific instance in time. He also touches on a bit of the history of calculus. This video would make a good introduction to a calculus class or as a start to a larger discussion about the uses of calculus today.
