Difference Equations to Differential Equations - An introduction to calculus
by Dan Sloughter
Number of pages: 599
The study of calculus begins with questions about change. What happens to the velocity of a swinging pendulum as its position changes? What happens to the position of a planet as time changes? What happens to a population of owls as its rate of reproduction changes? Mathematically, one is interested in learning to what extent changes in one quantity affect the value of another related quantity. Through the study of the way in which quantities change we are able to understand more deeply the relationships between the quantities themselves.

Much that is ordinarily included in treatises on Analytics and Calculus, has been omitted from this book, not because it was regarded as worthless, but because it was considered quite unnecessary for the student of engineering.

A calculus textbook written for traditional college/university calculus courses. It has the look and feel of the calculus book you likely use right now. The explanations of new concepts is clear, written for someone who does not yet know calculus.
by James Callahan, et al. - Five Colleges, Inc.
In this course you will learn to use calculus both as a tool and as a language in which you can think coherently about the problems you will be studying. The computer or the graphing calculator is a tool that that you will need for this course.
