    Question Qualitative notion of something...

    Hello,

    I am currently reading a forum on the topic of calculus.
    I have come across the following statement: "I am sure you know lots about how things change. And you have a qualitative notion of calculus...".
    I do understand that qualitative means something that is measured in quality rather than quantity.
    And notion is a concept, but with these two words together I get confused.
    Rephrased does it mean the same as "you know already the importance of calculus"?

    Best,
    Granum

    Re: Qualitative notion of something...

    It is the concept of calculus without using numbers to explain it.
