Wiley has had tremendous success selling math-related resources in the CliffsNotes and For Dummies lines. Yet roughly 400f all learners are visual. Teach Yourself VISUALLY Calculus will deconstruct complex mathematical concepts in easy-to-follow, illustrated steps that enable readers to follow complex concepts. A simple step-by-step, color-coded mathematical breakdown will provide readers key concepts and procedures at a glance so that they don't need to sort through lengthy instructional text. This innovative approach has few competitors in the market.
