James & James Mathematics Dictionary defines calculus as "the field of
mathematics which deals with differentiation and integration of functions
and related concepts and applications." If a problem does not involve
the use of "differentiation and integration of functions and related
concepts and applications" then it is not a calculus problem. If the box
problem is solved without differentiation and integration then it not a
calculus problem.
