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.

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 difference between advanced calculus and calculus is that all the theorems are proved completely. Routine skills are supposed to be mastered and have no place in advanced calculus which deals with the issues related to existence and meaning.
