Resources and extra material for Calculus.
There is a nice set of lecture notes by Gregory Naber, containing several examples, at:

http://www.pages.drexel.edu/~gln22/Lecture%20Notes%20on%20Calculus.htm

If typically you can learn things only by seeing tons of examples, you should have a look at the textbook "Schaum's outline of theory and problems of differential and integrals calculus" (or one of its variants), by Elliott Mendelson, which contains more than 1000 problems solved. It can be found in the library or bought by a reasonable price on Amazon.

Finally, if you struggle with simple algebra, make sure to check this list of common mistakes.
