520 An accessible, streamlined, and user-friendly approach to
calculus Calculus is a beautiful subject that most of us
learn from professors, textbooks, or supplementary texts.
Each of these resources has strengths but also weaknesses.
In Calculus Simplified, Oscar Fernandez combines the
strengths and omits the weaknesses, resulting in a
"Goldilocks approach" to learning calculus: just the right
level of detail, the right depth of insights, and the
flexibility to customize your calculus adventure.
Fernandez begins by offering an intuitive introduction to
the three key ideas in calculus-limits, derivatives, and
integrals. The mathematical details of each of these
pillars of calculus are then covered in subsequent
chapters, which are organized into mini-lessons on topics
found in a college-level calculus course. Each mini-lesson
focuses first on developing the intuition behind calculus
and then on conceptual and computational mastery. Nearly
200 solved examples and more than 300 exercises allow for
ample opportunities to practice calculus. And additional
resources-including video tutorials and interactive graphs
-are available on the book’s website. Calculus Simplified
also gives you the option of personalizing your calculus
journey. For example, you can learn all of calculus with
zero knowledge of exponential, logarithmic, and
trigonometric functions-these are discussed at the end of
each mini-lesson. You can also opt for a more in-depth
understanding of topics-chapter appendices provide
additional insights and detail. Finally, an additional
appendix explores more in-depth real-world applications of
calculus. Learning calculus should be an exciting voyage,
not a daunting task. Calculus Simplified gives you the
freedom to choose your calculus experience, and the right
support to help you conquer the subject with confidence.
