Download e-book for kindle: Calculus in Context by Alexander J. Hahn

By Alexander J. Hahn

Breaking the mildew of latest calculus textbooks, Calculus in Context attracts scholars into the topic in new methods. half I develops the mathematical preliminaries (including geometry, trigonometry, algebra, and coordinate geometry) in the old body of the traditional Greeks and the heliocentric revolution in astronomy. half II starts off with finished and sleek remedies of the basics of either differential and crucial calculus, then turns to a wide-ranging dialogue of functions. scholars will study that center principles of calculus are imperative to thoughts equivalent to acceleration, strength, momentum, torque, inertia, and the homes of lenses.

Classroom-tested at Notre Dame collage, this textbook is acceptable for college kids of wide-ranging backgrounds since it engages its topic at a number of degrees and provides abundant and versatile challenge set thoughts for teachers. elements I and II are either supplemented by means of expansive difficulties and initiatives segments. themes coated within the publication include:

• the fundamentals of geometry, trigonometry, algebra, and coordinate geometry and the ancient, medical time table that drove their improvement• a short, introductory calculus from the works of Newton and Leibniz• a latest improvement of the necessities of differential and vital calculus• the research of particular, relatable purposes, equivalent to the arc of the George Washington Bridge; the dome of the Pantheon; the optics of a telescope; the dynamics of a bullet; the geometry of the pseudosphere; the movement of a planet in orbit; and the momentum of an item in loose fall.

Calculus in Context is a compelling exploration—for scholars and teachers alike—of a self-discipline that's either wealthy in conceptual attractiveness and wide in its utilized relevance.
