Description
Are you intrigued by calculus but too intimidated to tackle it? If your fear of numbers has prevented you from learning calculus, fear no more. Take the first step toward a whole new world of adventure with this delightful, easy-to-follow journey through mathematics.

Jefferson Hane Weaver fills this gentle guide for the mathematically-challenged with entertaining anecdotes and fabulous wry humor as he untangles the web of algebra, geometry, and trigonometry that leads to calculus. Without resorting to complicated symbols or formulas, Weaver shows us with everyday examples, clear language, and humorous scenarios that the beauty and utility of calculus always surround us -- such as when we drive our ears, play ball, or run to catch a train. Don't let the integral intimidate you and the derivative defy you!

This light-hearted and engaging book will arm you with the knowledge you need to conquer your fears, impress your friends and colleagues, and even give you skills that could lead to advancement on the job. We learn that calculus is flexible, fun, and exciting -- dealing with speed, acceleration, and motion. This lively book will easily and effortlessly bring clarity and understanding as it empowers you to conquer calculus.
