This clip explains the importance of constants: what they are and how they play a role in derivatives and integrals. This significant clip explains how to use integrals in an equation and on a graph while incorporating the logistical and necessary definition of constants. This uses visuals of a graph and numbers to form the equation and understanding of integrals, derivatives, and constants. Shini also explains initial value and position graphs.

This section of the Crash Course explains what Limits are and why they are useful. Shini (the woman in the video) explains what an interval is and how they are used for limits.
This video describes area under a graph and integrals. The Crash Course expert also explains how you would find an integral using shapes under a curve on a graph.
This video gives an example of someone trying to find the height of their bedroom by using acceleration and velocity. This also incldues an explanation of the different aspects of integrals, velocity graphs, displacement curve, integral of acceleration, and the power rule in order for someone to solve the example. Additionally, the Crash Course video explains how to use constants in the equation.
Finch, as a substitute teacher, draws a circle on the board along with the symbol, Pi, and asks the class what it means. When a student asks what Pi is good for and when one would use it, he gives a compelling answer.
Larry and Amelia consult the Einstein bobbleheads for help on finding the secret at the heart of the Pharoah's tomb. Amelia realizes that the answer is Pi, and the Einsteins state the value of Pi since Larry doesn't seem to be familiar with the constant. Important to note is that Pi is not exactly the value stated by the Einsteins; it is approximately that value.
