Elements of the Differential and Integral Calculus
by William Anthony Granville
Publisher: Ginn 1911
Number of pages: 493
in this revised edition of Granville's "Calculus" the latest and best methods are exhibited,—methods that have stood the test of actual classroom work. Those features of the first edition which contributed so much to its usefulness and popularity have been retained. The introductory matter has been cut down somewhat in order to get down to the real business of the Calculus sooner. As this is designed essentially for a drill book, the pedagogic principle that each result should be made intuitionally as well as analytically evident to the student has been kept constantly in mind.

The style is fluent and familiar; the treatment continuous and undogmatic. The main difficulties which encompass the early study of the Calculus are discussed in connexion with practical and historical illustrations which leave little to be desired.
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.

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 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.
