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.

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.
by John William Mercer - Cambridge University Press
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.
by Roy McWeeny - Learning Development Institute
This book deals with the mathematics we need in describing the relationships among the quantities we measure in Physics. This leads us into the study of relationships and change, the starting point for Mathematical Analysis and the Calculus.
by Marcel B. Finan - Arkansas Tech University
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.
