College Physics is a compulsory course for science and engineering students, and it is also an important basic course for cultivating scientific thinking and innovation ability. However, due to its high requirements for mathematical knowledge, many mathematical ideas in the process of solving physical problems are easily ignored, which makes it difficult for students to learn. Based on the analysis of some knowledge points in college physics textbooks, use of calculus solving physics problems is the emphasis and difficulty in college physics teaching. Summarizes the methods and techniques of using calculus thought to analyze and solve problems, so that students can skillfully apply calculus thought to college physics learning, to achieve the purpose of improving teaching quality.
