Teach Yourself VISUALLY Calculus

( 1 )

Overview

Calculus can test the limits of even the most advanced math students. This visual, easy-to-follow book deconstructs complex mathematical concepts in a way that’s infinitely easier to grasp. With clear, color-coded methods, you’ll get step-by-step instructions on solving problems using limits, derivatives, differentiation, curve sketching, and integrals. Easy access to concepts means you don’t have to sort through lengthy instructional text, and you can refer to the Appendix for a look at common differentiation ...

    Many Typos, still effective

    This book was released without being reread by peers. As a results you will find my annoying typos. Beside this inconvenience, I used the book to teach to a student all the topics of calculus and it was an effective exercise. We read together and the student is asked to resolve the numerous short exercises. It is effective in its aim of explaining things with less wording. I recommend the author to correct the typos and people to buy it.
