Transitioning to Calculus is a comprehensive compilation of the mathematical concepts and formulas that are required of students entering their first class in calculus. The essentials of arithmetic, algebra, geometry, analytic geometry, trigonometry, and complex variables are organized into separate chapters. The purpose of this book is to provide a succinct but comprehensive list of the topics required of students entering calculus.
Over 100 figures highlight the intuitive and geometric aspects of the formulas and concepts. Each chapter ends with a series of exercises (with space provided for working out a solution) that are designed to reinforce the application of the concepts and formulas. Complete solutions to the problems are included.
