Calculus for the Ambitious, Paperback Book


From the author of The Pleasures of Counting and Naive Decision Making comes a calculus book perfect for self-study.

It will open up the ideas of the calculus for any 16- to 18-year-old, about to begin studies in mathematics, and will be useful for anyone who would like to see a different account of the calculus from that given in the standard texts.

In a lively and easy-to-read style, Professor Koerner uses approximation and estimates in a way that will easily merge into the standard development of analysis.

By using Taylor's theorem with error bounds he is able to discuss topics that are rarely covered at this introductory level.

This book describes important and interesting ideas in a way that will enthuse a new generation of mathematicians.
