Summary

This book covers calculus with an emphasis on cross-discipline principles and practices. Designed to be both reader-friendly and accessible, it develops a thorough, functional understanding of mathematical concepts in preparation for their application in other areas. Each chapter concentrates on developing concepts and ideas followed immediately by developing computational skills and problem solving. Two-part coverage presents a library of elementary functions and calculus. For individuals looking for a view of mathematical ideas and processes, and an illustration of the relevance of mathematics to the real world.
