**Dr. Vogel's Gallery of Calculus Pathologies**

by Thomas I. Vogel

1997

**Description**:

In learning calculus, students develop intuitive ideas of such concepts as limit, continuity, differentiability, and so on. This intuition is useful in dealing with simple examples, but can be a positive hindrance to deeper understanding of the basic concepts of mathematical analysis. The point of this text is to challenge and refine the intuition of better calculus students and students in advanced calculus.
