The Calculus for Beginners
by John William Mercer
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 1914
Number of pages: 470
The author has been guided by the conviction that it is much more important for the beginner to understand clearly what the processes of the Calculus mean, and what it can do for him, than to acquire facility in performing its operations or a wide acquaintance with them.

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.
