This is the sixth lecture from the series on General Relativity. The plan is to systematically introduce the formalism of tensor calculus, from most elementary concepts to calculation of curvature via exterior calculus methods. The exposition is aimed to be naive, non-rigorous and intuitive, with the emphasis on examples. The target audience are (under)graduate students of mathematics and physics, as well as anyone interested in differential geometry.
