This book is for instructors who think that most calculus textbooks are too long. In writing the book, James Stewart asked himself: What is essential for a three-semester calculus course for scientists and engineers? ESSENTIAL CALCULUS, Second Edition, offers a concise approach to teaching calculus that focuses on major concepts, and supports those concepts with precise definitions, patient explanations, and carefully graded problems. The book is only 900 pages--two-thirds the size of Stewart’s other calculus texts, and yet it contains almost all of the same topics. The author achieved this relative brevity primarily by condensing the exposition and by putting some of the features on the book’s website, www.StewartCalculus.com. Despite the more compact size, the book has a modern flavor, covering technology and incorporating material to promote conceptual understanding, though not as prominently as in Stewart’s other books. ESSENTIAL CALCULUS features the same attention to detail, eye for innovation, and meticulous accuracy that have made Stewart’s textbooks the best-selling calculus texts in the world.

Essential Calculus with Applications

Calculus is an extremely powerful tool for solving a host of practical problems in fields as diverse as physics, biology, and economics, to mention just a few. In this rigorous but accessible text, a noted mathematician introduces undergraduate-level students to the problem-solving techniques that make a working knowledge of calculus indispensable for any mathematician. The author first applies the necessary mathematical background, including sets, inequalities, absolute value, mathematical induction, and other "precalculus" material. Chapter Two begins the actual study of differential calculus with a discussion of the key concept of function, and a thorough treatment of derivatives and limits. In Chapter Three differentiation is used as a tool; among the topics covered here are velocity, continuous and differentiable functions, the indefinite integral, local extrema, and concrete optimization problems. Chapter Four treats integral calculus, employing the standard definition of the Riemann integral, and deals with the mean value theorem for integrals, the main techniques of integration, and improper integrals. Chapter Five offers a brief introduction to differential equations and their applications, including problems of growth, decay, and motion. The final chapter is devoted to the differential calculus of functions of several variables. Numerous problems and answers, and a newly added section of "Supplementary Hints and Answers," enable the student to test his grasp of the material before going on. Concise and well written, this text is ideal as a primary text or as a refresher for anyone wishing to review the fundamentals of this crucial discipline.

The Essential Calculus Workbook: Trigonometric Functions

  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Ready to step up your game in calculus? This workbook isn't the usual parade of repetitive questions and answers. Author Tim Hill's approach lets you work on problems you enjoy, rather than through exercises and drills you fear, without the speed pressure, timed testing, and rote memorization that damage your experience of mathematics. Working through varied problems in this anxiety-free way helps you develop an understanding of numerical relations apart from the catalog of mathematical facts that's often stressed in classrooms and households. This number sense, common in high-achieving students, lets you apply and combine concepts, methods, and numbers flexibly, without relying on distant memories. - Solutions to basic problems are steeped in the fundamentals, including notation, terminology, definitions, theories, proofs, physical laws, and related concepts. - Advanced problems explore variations, tricks, subtleties, and real-world applications. - Problems build gradually in difficulty with little repetition. If you get stuck, then flip back a few pages for a hint or to jog your memory. - Numerous pictures depicting mathematical facts help you connect visual and symbolic representations of numbers and concepts. - Treats calculus as a problem-solving art requiring insight and intuitive understanding, not as a branch of logic requiring careful deductive reasoning. - Discards the common and damaging misconception that fast students are strong students. Good students aren't particularly fast with numbers because they think deeply and carefully about mathematics. - Detailed solutions and capsule reviews greatly reduce the need to cross reference a comprehensive calculus textbook. Topics covered: Basic trigonometry. Limits, derivatives, integrals, and graphs of basic and inverse trigonometric functions. Solids of revolution. Buffon's needle problem. The corridor problem. Simple harmonic motion. Newton's second law of motion. The hyperbolic functions sinh, cosh, and tanh. Catenaries. Prerequisite mathematics: Tangent lines. Curve sketching. Limits. Continuity. Basic derivatives. Basic integrals. Inverse functions. Maxima and minima. Inflection points. Contents 1. Review of Trigonometry 2. Elementary Trigonometry 3. Derivatives of Sine and Cosine 4. Integrals of Sine and Cosine 5. Derivatives of Other Trigonometric Functions 6. Inverse Trigonometric Functions 7. Harmonic Motion 8. Hyperbolic Functions
