This is a great book on calculus, probably THE best book for beginners. Thomson develops the idea of differentials through a very intuitive way, easily understandable and thought provoking. Certain complex topics are introduced in such a way that the reader never freaks out. .) a must buy for a beginner in the subject

(By the way the famous nobel winning theoretical physicist, Richard Feynman learnt calculus from this book.)

Practical Calculus For Practical Man

Are you Afraid when it comes about learning calculus? if yes than its probably because of teaching it in hard methods by so called intelligent.

But there are very few teachers and books that says its easy and simple to learn calculus because they know the easy and practical methods of Teaching and learning calculus.

This book is from one of those books which will teach you the calculus in the most simple and practical way. It doesn’t mean that you will learn everything without applying proper efforts. But Easy it means that this book will tell you the meaning of calculus and all its related terms in practical way that you understand it Easily.

The book Practical Calculus will Teach you following Topics from the Beginning.

1.FUNDMENTAL IDEAS. RATES AND DIFFERENTIATION

2.FUNCTIONS AND DERIVATIVES.

3.DIFFERENTIALS OF ALGEBRIC FUNCTIONS

4.USE OF RATES AND DIFFERENTIALS IN SOLVING PROBLEMS.

5.DIFFERENTIALS OF TRIGONOMETRIC FUNCTIONS.

6.VELOCITY,ACCELERATION AND DERIVATIVES.

7.INTERPRETATION OF FUNCTIONS AND DERIVATIVES BY MEANS OF GRAPHS.

8.MAXIMUM AND MINIMUM VALUES

9.PROBLEMS IN MAXMA AND MINIMA

10.DIFFERENTIALS OF LOGARITHMIC AND EXPONENTIAL FUNCTIONS

11.SUMMARY OF DIFFERENTIAL FORMULAS

12.REVERSING TH PROCESS OF DIFFERENTIATION

13.INTEGRAL FORMULAS

14.HOW TO USE INTEGRAL FORMULAS

15.INTEGRATION OF INTEGRAL BY MEANS OF GRAPHS

16.GRAPHICAL APPLICATION OF INTEGRATION

17.USE OF INTEGRALS IN SOLVING PROBLEMS.

18.THE NATURAL LAW OF GROWTH AND THE NUMBER “e”.

Must have for calculus interested!

Reviewed in Germany on 23 November 2018

This book has a very unconventional way of introducing to calculus. While other books focus on the newtonian principle of limit values this book takes another approach by describing what change means in mathematical terms and how changes in different variables are connected.

The first half of the book introduces the differentials of algebraic, geometric and exponential functions in all detail while the second half is dedicated to teaching integral calculation.

Also there is alot of exercises that repeat perfectly the stuff tought in the particular chapters.

Also for more advanced students of calculus this book is an asset because it treats the topic in a unique way so that some might enhance their knowledge about the meaning and application of calculus.

The only negative aspect is that some of the given solutions to the exercises are not correct. But this only affects a handful of the exercises and either way there are online tools for checking the own calculated solutions (e.g. Wolfram Alpha).

All in all, this book is a gem for everyone interested in calculus, whether you are a scientific student or for the everyday use without having a great mathematical background. The book shows the magic of calculus and makes a great job in wetting ones appetite for differential equations and the way to create and handle them.

Content is fantastic but the problems and solutions are riddled with errors

I’ve been studying from this book for a few months and have found the content of chapters and explanations to be really high quality(It is written in rather a different style to modern textbooks and does take a bit of getting used to) . The only downside I’ve found is there are a good number of errors in the answers at the back of the book. This has caused much frustration and lots of time wasted. Also if you’re a not familiar to imperial measure some of the problems will do your head in and you will appreciate metric so much more after reading this book.

Best explanation of calculus I’ve encountered

Reviewed in the United States on 22 June 2019

I have a Bachelor’s with a minor in math, but that was decades ago. Now, approaching my 60’s, I was looking for a re-introduction to calculus (just because I’m a nerd). I’m not the brightest bulb in the pack so I need things explained to me simply, and then built upon. This book does a masterful job of that. Usually in books on math or science subjects I end up reading the same sentence (or paragraph) multiple times. As I said, not the brightest bulb. But with this book every single sentence and explanation was intuitive and easily understandable. After attempting several books on calculus, this is the only one I actually completed. If this can teach calculus to me, it can teach calculus to anyone.

Content of the book is fantastic for learning calculus! Set around first year university level, and explained with the use of practical applications, as you surely assumed.

Only downside is that there are errors in the calculations, both in worked examples and in the answers for the exercises at the end of each chapter. Had to check several answers with wolfram alpha in the first few chapters alone.

The paper is good quality though, so it’s not too much trouble penciling in corrections.

Would still highly recommend to anybody.

Vieleicht sogar das beste Buch zu diesem Thema

Reviewed in Germany on 17 September 2012

Das Buch ist ditaktisch sehr gut aufgebaut und wie viele andere auch, habe ich mir dieses Buch

gekauft, weil Richard Feynman sich das Thema mit diesem Buch aneignete. Das Buch richtet sich vor allem

an Anfänger doch auch Fortgeschrittene werden was aus dem Buch mitnehmen können.

Ich Studiere Physik und mir hat das Buch als Lernhilfe vor dem Studium gedient und es ist sein Gewicht in Gold Wert.

Das einzige was man wissen sollte ist, das Buch benutzt sehr unorthodoxe Ansätze und daher kann es sehr schwer sein

wenn man mehrere Bücher benutzten will um sich das Thema anzueignen. Das Buch sollte man als Anfänger, daher nur kaufen

wenn man vorhat es komplett durch zuarbeiten. Wenn man das geschaft hat, hat man ein gewaltiges Arsenal an Werkzeugen um

sich Mathematischen Problemen zu stellen.
