Request a sales quoteElementary Calculus presents a three semester introductory course on calculus. This book reveals the conceptual development of the calculus, taking into cognizance the technical and applied sides and standards of clarity and rigor that prevail in mathematics. The topics discussed include the basic laws of numbers, classification of real functions, and concept of instantaneous velocity. The limits of functions defined on intervals, derivatives of the trigonometric functions, and standard logarithmic function are also reviewed. This text likewise considers integration by substitution, lengths of plane curves, and simple harmonic motion. This publication is designed for students who have a knowledge of elementary trigonometry, and either have had a one semester course on analytic or coordinate geometry or might take such a course with calculus.
