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.

This short supplement consists of the author's lectures of a freshmen-level mathematics class offered at Arkansas Tech University. These lecture notes are basically well suited for a one semester course in Business Calculus.

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.

The text represents one person's attempt to put the essential ideas of calculus into a short and concise format. It may not appeal to a wide range of mathematicians, but it should provide most students with a good foundation in calculus.
