That just shows that you ARE paying attention…and we teachers love that!

Thanks for the video, Mr. Tarrou 😀

One day your channel is going to blow up exponentially and you'll get the views you deserve. You're the best Professor Tarrou!

Thanks for your continued support too:)

I was ready with my notes for that second example. shucks!

• October 29, 2013 at 10:52 pm

NICE CATCH…Evidently you are the first one to ever watch this video to the end…I don't know where the example went:(
The last example was a absolute value function with it's sharp bend within the closed interval so the MVT theorem would not have applied.

Yet again, you have saved my life.
Thank you, Prof!

Great videos, thankyou!
Do you have a video on Cauchy's Mean Value Thm?

• June 30, 2014 at 11:35 pm

Thanks alot =]
You just must made this whole process crystal clear!

You are an awesome teacher.
Thank you for making this concept so clear for us.

mr bean here

Your videos are so helpful. I cleared my concept for so many topics from your videos. Its really helpful.
Btw, I am curious to know that, after your blackboard space gets over, you just press a button in a remote control
and the whole writing just slides away like in a multimedia presentation. How you do that when you are writing on that blackboard?

Nice video!  One point to consider re: the "non-example" — you drew a curve which has a sharp turn, but there is still a tangent that is parallel to the chord.  i.e. the hypothesis is false, but the conclusion is still true.  Would it be more effective to show an example where there is no tangent line parallel to the chord?  For instance, y = abs(x) on the interval (-1, 4).  Thanks again for posting this video!

This was helpful! Thx

professor thank you so much for video.. but i really don't like ur "BAAMMMM" sound and ur jumping….. i use my headphone and the sound is too loud  to hear.

• April 10, 2015 at 6:48 pm

Thank you so much for these videos. I supplement my study with these videos and they are immensely helpful! High A in Calc 1, thanks!

• April 24, 2015 at 2:33 pm

Thank you professor . I've been watching your videos for one year , and they're really helpful !

• July 22, 2015 at 4:20 am

There was no "BAM, go do your homework" on this one. Now I have an excuse not to do homework!

• October 16, 2015 at 11:28 pm

hate math..

• October 29, 2015 at 10:24 pm

Great video!! Is there a video on the squeeze theorem? I can't seem to find it :/

• November 5, 2015 at 3:28 am

very good video explained concept well

Sometimes, when I get bored, I like to think about who owns the largest market share of the youtube math-video business (1-sale = a user watching 75% of the video)
I think its something like this
2.) PatrickJMT
3.)ProfRobBob
4.)MathBFF
5.)Prof.Leonard

I never thought I would understand it easily ..That was great BAAAAM 🙂

• March 7, 2016 at 9:14 am

When the other YouTubers don't make sense I watch ProfRobBob. 🙂

• April 9, 2016 at 8:53 pm

I used you last semester for pre-calculus trig when I started to have problems. Completely forgot about how well you teach till I started struggling with this subject in my calculus class. Your videos are the best one's I have found online. Should have remembered you when I was having trouble with implicit differentiation. Thanks for your videos!!!

• October 12, 2016 at 5:22 am

One of the only reasons I still have an A in Calculus I, Thank you very much Mr. Tarrou / ProfRobBob!! You have a great way of explaining things so that they make sense to everyone. Thanks Again! 🙂 BAMMM!

P.S. Chalk Talk is an awesome name for your lectures too, makes it less intimidating than seeing something like "Calculus Lecture – Mean Value Therom for Derivatives"

• October 26, 2016 at 8:08 am

video only has the one example 🙁 you mentioned you were going to do to two 🙁

• December 19, 2016 at 10:09 pm

BAM!! Thank you sir!

• December 25, 2016 at 7:52 pm

plz come and teach me in my college

• March 31, 2017 at 1:47 am

And you can plug the "4" in the original function to find the "y" value of c. Thank you sir, you have been my savior 👋

• July 16, 2017 at 6:32 pm

Your attention to detail when explaining these concepts are always amazing and exactly what I need! Thank you for creating these online lecture videos! Best of luck to you!

Waaaah Rolle's Theorem well understood. . 🙏
