Elementary Illustrations of the Differential and Integral Calculus
by Augustus De Morgan
Publisher: The Open Court Pub. Co. 1899
Number of pages: 194
The style is fluent and familiar; the treatment continuous and undogmatic. The main difficulties which encompass the early study of the Calculus are analysed and discussed in connexion with practical and historical illustrations which in point of simplicity and clearness leave little to be desired.

The text represents one person's attempt to put the essential ideas of calculus into a short and concise format. It may not appeal to a wide range of mathematicians, but it should provide most students with a good foundation in calculus.

The book covers some parts of plane trigonometry and analytic geometry, followed by an introduction to the differential calculus, including differentiation of simpler algebraic functions and applications to problems of rates and maxima and minima.

This text is meant to be read and enjoyed. It assumes you've seen some Calculus before: you know what to do (differentiate / integrate) and how to do it, but you don't know what it really means -- like everything else in life ...

This is a very condensed and simplified version of basic calculus, which is a prerequisite for many courses in Mathematics, Statistics, Engineering, etc. It is not comprehensive, and not intended to be a substitute for a one-year freshman course.
