All teachers of engineering and applied sciences generally now recognize the vast superiority of graphical over purely mathematical methods of imparting instruction of almost every description. The former are much more convincing to the student, because they appeal to the eye, the training of which is one of the chief objects to be aimed at in the education of an engineer. In this little book we see graphical constructions of a very simple character employed to teach what, to the beginner, are somewhat abstruse mathematical principles.

This text is meant to be read and enjoyed. It assumes you've seen some Calculus before: you know what to do (differentiate / integrate) and how to do it, but you don't know what it really means -- like everything else in life ...
