Overview

The subject of calculus does not usually evoke adjectives like ""simple"" and ""concise."" Traditional calculus texts have involved a more comprehensive, theoretical approach than is appropriate for those learning this critically important subject for its utilitarian value.

This succinct, innovative text:

  • Presents the standard material of single-variable calculus in a simple and concise manner.
  • Explains essential calculus concepts through simple geometric and physical examples rather than formal proofs.
  • Teaches future engineers the essential calculus they will need to succeed in their profession, making it an eminently suitable text for two-term calculus courses taught in schools of engineering.
  • Provides engineering professionals with a ready resource for the calculus techniques they may have forgotten.
  • Makes calculus accessible to readers whose prior knowledge may only include high school algebra but who need to utilize calculus for academic or professional advancement.
