This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Calculus template. 

This template does not require a rating on Wikipedia's content assessment scale. It is of interest to the following WikiProjects:  

this big box makes articles hard to read i think it should be moved to the bottom of the pages
the box should not be removed from articles that are included on the template. also, if a user clicks on an article in the template, the template should be on that page for navigation purposes. 68.60.39.231 20:23, 12 July 2005 (UTC)

For practice with templates, I rewrote a calculus template that was collapsible and that you can have open to the correct category. I did add some things as well to help from a physics perspective. (Being collapsible the space issue is diminished quite a bit.) This is similar to the ((PhysicsNavigation)) although I tried to keep the calculus style.
If there is no objections, I am likely to replace this current calculus template with the one I rewrote soon. I don't know enough about the math projects style to push the button without some warning, though. TStein (talk) 19:08, 17 April 2009 (UTC)
I added sections on tensor calculus, fractional calculus, and stochastic calculus, and added several links to the differential/integral calculus sections. Does anyone object? Is the template too big? M∧Ŝc^{2}ħεИ_{τlk} 14:53, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
I disagree that this is clearer, and if anything it has added an unnecessary level of complexity to the template code. Frietjes (talk) 15:10, 10 April 2013 (UTC)
I removed the image File:GeometricSquares.svg from the template. While it is perfectly fine as an image, and even accepting that it is a good image for illustrating the subject of calculus (which is somewhat debatable), it is not really all that relevant to most of the articles on which the template appears. I noticed this image while perusing Curl (mathematics), for example. An image illustrating the geometric series was totally out of place there, and indeed would be in almost any other article under the scope of this navigation template. There is no shortage of relevant images that can go into the leads of articles on calculus. We shouldn't waste the real estate with irrelevant justbecauseitlookscool images.

I think that the ordering of subareas should reflect the order they are typically learned in. Specifically, it's more common to learn multivariable calculus before vector calculus, and so it should be above vector calc. on the list. Gouwsxander (talk) 22:13, 21 March 2018 (UTC)
Vector and multivariable calculus are typically taught simultaneously, given they're essentially the same thing. Closed Limelike Curves (talk) 22:25, 4 October 2020 (UTC)
The equation in the box on the topright is incorrect. It's off by a constant term f(0). Inverting the equation, so that the derivative of the integral is being taken, would probably be a better alternative. Closed Limelike Curves (talk) 22:24, 4 October 2020 (UTC)
I think the article on mathematical analysis should be mentioned, maybe even in the header next to calculus. What do you think?  TheFibonacciEffect (talk) 16:46, 31 March 2021 (UTC)
