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.

Integrate Your Brain teaches how talented mathematicians utilize their normal, human mental ability to tackle calculus. You are gently trained in the fundamental skills, and shown step by step how to put them into action yourself.

Most students already have assigned textbooks when studying Calculus I, therefore this free book takes a different approach. It focuses on explaining the central theories and warns students of the areas where mistakes are traditionally made.

The style is fluent and familiar; the treatment continuous and undogmatic. The main difficulties which encompass the early study of the Calculus are discussed in connexion with practical and historical illustrations which leave little to be desired.

A book for the mathematically eager who know some algebra. First published in 1910, overall a million copies have been sold. Most talk of continuum and its infinities is suppressed. A remarkable and user-friendly approach to the study of calculus.
