The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Calculus (Classroom Resource Materials, Volume 57)

The Hitchhiker's Guide to Calculus begins with a rapid view oflines and slope. Spivak then takes up non-linear functions andtrigonometric functions. He places the magnifying glass on curvesin the next chapter and effortlessly leads the reader to the ideaof derivative. In the next chapter he tackles speed and velocity,followed by the derivative of sine. Maxima and minima are next.Rolle's theorem and the MVT form the core of Chapter 11, "WatchingExperts at Play."The Hitchhiker's Guide to Calculus closes with a chapter on theintegral, the fundamental theorem, and applications of theintegral.
