Summary

Are you ready to ace calculus at the college level? With this book, you will be! Professors often say "Students don't fail the calculus, they fail the algebra." In other words, even if you understand calculus, your algebra and trigonometry skills can hold you back. Here's a quick quiz-do you remember how to: Factor trinomials? Solve equations containing exponents and logs? Work with inverse trig functions? If not, that's where this book comes in handy! Just-in-Timeis designed to bolster the algebra and trigonometry skills you'll need while you study calculus. As you make your way through the course, Just-in-Timeis with you every step of the way, showing you the exact algebra or trigonometry topics that you'll need and pointing out potential problem spots. The easy-to-use Table of Contents features the calculus subject listed directly across from the algebra/trigonometry skills needed to master that topic. Use this book as your study companion and put your anxiety to rest!

Author Biography

Guntram B. Mueller received his PhD in Mathematics from the University of Notre Dame. He has taught calculus many times and is very familiar with the typical strengths and weaknesses in the backgrounds of his students. That experience is what guided him, in cooperation with Dr. Ron Brent, in writing the Just-in-Time series. His advice? Buy the book! It's got just what you need, just in time.

 

Ronald I. Brent is a Professor of Mathematics at University of Massachusetts, Lowell, where he has taught since 1987. He earned his PhD in Mathematics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Dr. Brent is the author of many publications, including three Just-In-Time mathematics texts. His main advice to his calculus students is: “Work on your homework as if your life in this course depends upon it. Because it does!
