Big Picture of Calculus
Calculus is about change. One function tells how quickly another function is changing. Professor Strang shows how calculus applies to ordinary life situations, such as: * driving a car * climbing a mountain * growing to full adult height
How to Solve Word Problems in Calculus by Eugene Don; Benay DonConsidered to be the hardest mathematical problems to solve, word problems continue to terrify students across all math disciplines. This new title in the World Problems series demystifies these difficult problems once and for all by showing even the most math-phobic readers simple, step-by-step tips and techniques. How to Solve World Problems in Calculus reviews important concepts in calculus and provides solved problems and step-by-step solutions. Once students have mastered the basic approaches to solving calculus word problems, they will confidently apply these new mathematical principles to even the most challenging advanced problems. Each chapter features an introduction to a problem type, definitions, related theorems, and formulas. Topics range from vital pre-calculus review to traditional calculus first-course content. Sample problems with solutions and a 50-problem chapter are ideal for self-testing. Fully explained examples with step-by-step solutions.
Practice Makes Perfect Calculus by William Clark; Sandra K. McCuneFor students who need to polish their calculus skills for class or for a critical exam, this no-nonsense practical guide provides concise summaries, clear model examples, and plenty of practice, practice, practice. About the Book With more than 1,000,000 copies sold, Practice Makes Perfect has established itself as a reliable practical workbook series in the language-learning category. Now, with Practice Makes Perfect: Calculus, students will enjoy the same clear, concise approach and extensive exercises to key fields they've come to expect from the series--but now within mathematics. Practice Makes Perfect: Calculus is not focused on any particular test or exam, but complementary to most calculus curricula. Because of this approach, the book can be used by struggling students needing extra help, readers who need to firm up skills for an exam, or those who are returning to the subject years after they first studied it. Its all-encompassing approach will appeal to both U.S. and international students. Features More than 500 exercises and answers covering all aspects of calculus. Successful series: -Practice Makes Perfect- has sales of 1,000,000 copies in the language category--now applied to mathematics. Large trim allows clear presentation of worked problems, exercises, and explained answers.

Humongous Book of Calculus Problems by W. Michael KelleyLet's face it. Math textbooks are not published out of the goodness of people's hearts. They're published because most of the people who write them will get fired from their jobs as college professors if they don't publish a textbook every now and then. This book, however, is an exception. Mike Kelley, bestselling author of The Complete Idiot's Guide to Calculus, has taken what appears to be a typical calculus workbook, chock full of solved calculus problems, and made notes in the margins adding missing steps and simplifying concepts and solutions so that what could be baffling to students is made perfectly clear. It's as if your best friend-who just happens to be a calculus wiz and who's painfully aware of your mathematical shortcomings-got a hold of your calculus workbook and went bananas with his ink pen, illuminating everything you find confusing! He was even kind enough to write legibly! No longer will befuddled students cry out in frustration- "Where the %#*! did that number come from?" or "Did they skip steps in this answer or am I just dumb?".

Calculus Deconstructed by Zbigniew H. NiteckiCalculus Deconstructed is a thorough and mathematically rigorous exposition of single-variable calculus for readers with some previous exposure to calculus techniques but not to methods of proof. This book is appropriate for a beginning Honors Calculus course assuming high school calculus or a ""bridge course"" using basica analysis to motivate and illustrate mathematical rigor. It can serve as a combination textbook and reference book for individual self-study. Standard topics and techniques in single-variable calculus are presented in context of a coherent logical structure, building on familiar properties of real numbers and teaching methods of proof by example along the way. Numerous examples reinforce both practical and theoretical understanding, and extensive historical notes explore the arguments of the originators of the subject. No previous experience with mathematical proof is assumed: rhetorical strategies and techniques of proof (reductio ad absurdum, induction, contrapositives, etc.) are introduced by example along the way. Between the text and exercises, proofs are available for all the basic results of calculus for functions of one real variable.
