All teachers of engineering and applied sciences generally now recognize the vast superiority of graphical over purely mathematical methods of imparting instruction of almost every description. The former are much more convincing to the student, because they appeal to the eye, the training of which is one of the chief objects to be aimed at in the education of an engineer. In this little book we see graphical constructions of a very simple character employed to teach what, to the beginner, are somewhat abstruse mathematical principles.

This elementary book embodies a systematic and efficient teaching method that marries modern evidence-based pedagogical findings with ideas that can be traced back to such educational and mathematical giants as Socrates and Euler.

Where many texts present a general theory of calculus followed by substantial collections of worked examples, we instead pose problems or situations, consider possibilities, and then ask students to investigate and explore.

The author introduces limits and derivatives, provides some rules for their computations, discusses some properties of differential equations, geometric properties of graphs, introduces the ideas of the definite and the indefinite integral, etc.

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.
