    This lesson is an introduction to double integrals of multivariable functions over regions in the plane. The professor explains very clearly the concept of what taking a double integral means, how to set up a double integral, and how to actually compute it. Some actual example problems are shown as well. This is a really good lesson on this topic. Some very difficult and confusing topics are covered.
