Calculus Mysteries and Thrillers by R. Grant WoodsThis book is a collection of a dozen mathematics projects. These are typically novel, interesting and several levels more complex than those usually found in textbooks. The nature of the projects makes them suitable for group working. The problems involve such diverse concepts as Newton's method for approximating roots, inverse trigonometric functions and surface area integrals. Although ideas from economics and physics are used in the problems no prior knowledge of these fields is required.

Fundamentals of Calculus by Carla C. Morris; Robert M. StarkFeatures the techniques, methods, and applications of calculus using real-world examples from business and economics as well as the life and social sciences An introduction to differential and integral calculus, Fundamentals of Calculus presents key topics suited for a variety of readers in fields ranging from entrepreneurship and economics to environmental and social sciences. Practical examples from a variety of subject areas are featured throughout each chapter and step-by-step explanations for the solutions are presented. Specific techniques are also applied to highlight important information in each section, including symbols interspersed throughout to further reader comprehension. In addition, the book illustrates the elements of finite calculus with the varied formulas for power, quotient, and product rules that correlate markedly with traditional calculus. Featuring calculus as the "mathematics of change," each chapter concludes with a historical notes section. Fundamentals of Calculus chapter coverage includes: Linear Equations and Functions The Derivative Using the Derivative Exponents and Logarithms Differentiation Techniques Integral Calculus Integrations Techniques Functions of Several Variables Series and Summations Applications to Probability Supplemented with online instructional support materials, Fundamentals of Calculus is an ideal textbook for undergraduate students majoring in business, economics, biology, chemistry, and environmental science.

Introduction to Calculus and Classical Analysis by Omar HijabThis text is intended for an honors calculus course or for an introduction to analysis. Involving rigorous analysis, computational dexterity, and a breadth of applications, it is ideal for undergraduate majors. This third edition includes corrections as well as some additional material. Some features of the text include: The text is completely self-contained and starts with the real number axioms; The integral is defined as the area under the graph, while the area is defined for every subset of the pla≠ There is a heavy emphasis on computational problems, from the high-school quadratic formula to the formula for the derivative of the zeta function at zero; There are applications from many parts of analysis, e.g., convexity, the Cantor set, continued fractions, the AGM, the theta and zeta functions, transcendental numbers, the Bessel and gamma functions, and many more; Traditionally transcendentally presented material, such as infinite products, the Bernoulli series, and the zeta functional equation, is developed over the reals; and There are 385 problems with all the solutions at the back of the text.

Calculus: The Language of Change by David W. Cohen; James M. HenleCalculus: The Language of Change is an innovative new introductory text that blends traditional and reform approaches, and focuses on understanding calculus as its own language. With accessible writing and presentation, the text allows students to gradually understand the language - first by reviewing vocabulary, and then by quickly moving to present calculus conceptually, computationally, and theoretically. Within this framework, derivatives and integrals are developed side by side, coverage of theory is offered at various levels, and computing devices are incorporated generically. A full range of student and instructor resources make Calculus: The Language of Change an outstanding course package.
