Synopsis

In "The Cartoon Guide to Calculus", master cartoonist and former Harvard calculus instructor Larry Gonick offers a complete and up-to-date illustrated course in college-level calculus. Using graphics and humor to lighten what is frequently a tough subject, Gonick entertainingly teaches all of the course essentials, functions, limits, derivatives, and integrals, with numerous examples and applications. He concludes with a bemused look at the paradoxes at the heart of calculus and the foundations of mathematics. And in an exciting first for the "Cartoon Guide" series, each chapter includes helpful problem sets, designed to help readers cement the lessons learned in each section. Combining entertainment and education, this is the perfect supplement for any study of calculus, whether readers are high school or college students, independent learners, or just lovers of Larry Gonick's bestselling, award-winning cartoon guides.
