Difference Equations to Differential Equations - An introduction to calculus
by


Number of pages: 599

Description:
The study of calculus begins with questions about change. What happens to the velocity of a swinging pendulum as its position changes? What happens to the position of a planet as time changes? What happens to a population of owls as its rate of reproduction changes? Mathematically, one is interested in learning to what extent changes in one quantity affect the value of another related quantity. Through the study of the way in which quantities change we are able to understand more deeply the relationships between the quantities themselves.
