Overview


This title in the Homework Helpers series tackles the most advanced mathematical course in most high schools: Calculus. The concepts are explained in everyday language before the examples are worked. Good habits, such as checking your answers after every problem, are reinforced.

There are practice problems throughout the book, and the answers to all of the practice problems are included. The problems are solved clearly and systematically, with step-by-step instructions provided.

Particular attention is placed on topics that students traditionally struggle with the most. While this book could be used to supplement a standard calculus textbook, it could also be used by college students or adult learners to refresh long-forgotten concepts and skills.

Homework Helpers: Calculus is a straightforward and understandable introduction to differential calculus and its applications. It covers all of the topics in a typical Calculus class, including:

  • Limits
  • Continuity
  • The product, quotient and chain rules
  • Implicit differentiation
  • Related rates
  • Graphical analysis
  • Optimization

    This book also contains a review of the pre-calculus concepts that form the foundation on which calculus is built.
