Recommends it for: any competent math student Recommended to Triet by: Isaac Newton I suppose only a trifle percentage of people would actually read Calculus: Graphical, Numerical, and Algebraic by Ross L.
Finney, and then rate it with five stars, but I am not like most people. First of all, no one actually forced me to pick up this textbook; I actually chose to read by my own volition. In fact, I read it more like a novel than a study material, because the content is suprising entertaining. Besides limits, derivatives, and integrals, differential euqations, all of the I suppose only a trifle percentage of people would actually read Calculus: Graphical, Numerical, and Algebraic by Ross L.
Besides limits, derivatives, and integrals, differential euqations, all of the standard material that all calculus students should know, this book also covers parametric, vector, and polar functions. Furthemore, the authors manage to keep this mathe experience enthralling by adding illustrations and information about the applications of each topic. Calculus has a basis in fluid and heat mechanics, pilot navigation systems, population estimates, minima and maxima of volume given vertain conditions, and area under curves.
One secondary fact I would like to mention is that I have seen this book before: my elder sister studied calculus in high school and I glimpsed at the cover about four years ago. Of course, I was too young at the tender age of ten to understand any of the fancy notation for derivation and integration , but I did promise myself that I would finish the book someday in the distant future, and what a splendid opportunity at this moment to execute this self-fulfillig prophecy! One of the exclusive attributes of Calculus: Graphical, Numerical, and Algebraic is its list of founding mathematicians, all of those men and women who strived to undertsand the universe though symbols.
Overall, I would suggest this book to anyone who aspire to succeed in advanced mathematics. If the content of this book are too difficult for some, those same people should use the Internet to answer all of their questions or to research some of the techniques in this magnificent textbook by Ross L.
