Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

According to figures released by ACT Inc., many more U.S. high school students are taking courses in mathematics than was the case a decade ago. In fact, the portion of college-bound students taking calculus increased from 16 percent in 1987 to 27 percent in 2000. Let's face it, most students and adults who take calculus do so not for the fun of it, but rather to advance within a job or fulfill a degree requirement. The Complete Idiot's Guide to Calculus will take the sting out of this complex math by putting its uses, functions and limitations in perspective of what is already familiar to readers-algebra. Once readers have brushed up on their algebra and trigonometry skills, they'll be eased into the fundamentals of calculus.

Synopsis:

Cast off the curse of calculus!

Like its predecessor, it was created with an audience of students working toward a non-science related degree in mind. A non-intimidating, easy-to-understand textbook companion, this new edition has more explanatory graphs and illustrations and double the number of practice problems.

First edition of this book has sold more copies than any of the other 70+ books on the subject

Twice as many practice problems in this second edition

More college students are now required to take calculus in college than ever before

Author is an award-winning calculus teacher praised for his ability to make this topic fun and approachable
