What is Calculus About?
W. W. Sawyer
What is Calculus About? gives students the big picture of calculus. It should be read by prospective and current calculus students and by their teachers. Even someone who has completely mastered the technical side of the subject can benefit from being reminded of the essentially simple ideas and the calculational needs that led mathematicians to develop the rather complex machinery of calculus. Sawyer deals with it all, from what background a student needs to begin, to the study of speed and acceleration, to graphing (slope and curvature), to areas, volumes, and the integral.
