Highlights of Calculus

Highlights of Calculus

'The book covers all the material of single and multivariable calculus that is normally in a three semester course for science, mathematics, and engineering students.

The style is less formal and more personal than the typical text, and it has a definite point of view that helps keep the book to a reasonable length. Still, there are some non-traditional topics such as a bit of linear algebra in two and three dimensions in the chapter on vectors and a section on complex numbers in the chapter on polar coordinates.'

This is a scanned version of the first edition (1991) and so the image quality is only fair.
Published by Wellsley Cambridge Press and made available in digital format through the MIT Open Course Ware project.

There is also an online Instructor's Manual and a student Study Guide.
