This textbook will help you learn to use calculus for solving mathematical, physical and engineering problems. The author taught calculus at Berkeley, and the 2nd edition incorporates many improvements based on the previous edition. Prerequisite material is only high school algebra and some plane geometry, trigonometry and analytic geometry are covered in the book completely.
Proofs are given only for the most important theorems, the theory of limits is de-emphasized until students have mastered differentiation and integration. The authors teach calculus closely related to the physical world, throughout the text they use numerous examples related to distance and velocity.
