Yet Another Calculus Text
by Dan Sloughter
Number of pages: 147
I intend this book to be, firstly, a introduction to calculus based on the hyperreal number system. In other words, I will use infinitesimal and infinite numbers freely. Just as most beginning calculus books provide no logical justification for the real number system, I will provide none for the hyperreals. Secondly, I have aimed the text primarily at readers who already have some familiarity with calculus. Although the book does not explicitly assume any prerequisites beyond basic algebra and trigonometry, in practice the pace is too fast for most of those without some acquaintance with the basic notions of calculus.

The derivative is presented rigorously as a limit. Maxima and minima are discussed as the turning values in the variation of a function. The related theories of inflexions, curvature, and asymptotes receive direct and comprehensive treatment.
by Peter Saveliev - Intelligent Perception
This is a traditional first semester course in introductory calculus. The main goal is some familiarity with the derivative and its applications. Topics: Limits; Continuity; Limits; Differentiation; Maximum and minimum values of functions; Integral.

This book is meant for students preparing for the B.A. and B.Sc. examinations. The treatment of the subject is rigorous but no attempt has been made to state and prove the theorems in generalised forms and under less restrictive conditions.
by Paul Dawkins - Lamar University
These notes should be accessible to anyone wanting to learn Calculus I or needing a refresher in some of the early topics in calculus. Contents: Review; Limits; Derivatives; Applications of Derivatives; Integrals; Applications of Integrals.
