  1. ok. Im in archive.org and in the advanced calc ap lessons.
    to the left of the screen it says FTP and HTTP, when i click those, a directory of files appear. How do I download those? I have cuteFTP installed.

    the website that im in is http://www.archive.org/details/AP_Calculus_AB_Lesson_03

    when i click ftp, it has all the files and to the top is the ftp server adress: ftp://ia300112.us.archive.org/3/items/AP_Calculus_AB_Lesson_03/

    now my Q is how do i download from that website? how do i download the lessons. Because to the right it always says that a specific lesson downloaded 300 times blah blah...........

    These are online lessons
    The FTP and HTTP links are just holding the pics and so forth, not the entire lesson

    The downloaded 300 x, means viewed 300 x (as the files are automatically downloaded to Temporary Internet files when viewing).

    Also it seems to be quite old.

    click on your choice FTP or HTTP (http would be easiest)
    this opens a listing
    find the one you want
    click on the name​
    the lesson opens in your browser

    some of these exist, eg lesson 1.03
    and some others do not, eg api.swf

    it would appear that this is a subtopic interface to 1.03
