About the AuthorA graduate of Brown University and the University of Wisconsin Law School, Mark Ryan has been teaching math since 1989. He runs the Math Center in Winnetka, Illinois (www.themathcenter.com), where he teaches high school math courses including an introduction to calculus and a workshop for parents based on a program he developed, The 10 Habits of Highly Successful Math Students. In high school, he twice scored a perfect 800 on the math portion of the SAT, and he not only knows mathematics, he has a gift for explaining it in plain English. He practiced law for four years before deciding he should do something he enjoys and use his natural talent for mathematics. Ryan is a member of the Authors Guild and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.
Calculus Workbook For Dummies is Ryan’s third book. Everyday Math for Everyday Life was published in 2002 and Calculus For Dummies (Wiley) in 2003. Table of ContentsIntroduction.
