An accessible, streamlined, and user-friendly approach to calculus

Calculus is a beautiful subject that most of us learn from professors, textbooks, or supplementary texts. Each of these resources has strengths but also weaknesses. In Calculus Simplified, Oscar Fernandez combines the strengths and omits the weaknesses, resulting in a “Goldilocks approach” to learning calculus: just the right level of detail, the right depth of insights, and the flexibility to customize your calculus adventure.

Fernandez begins by offering an intuitive introduction to the three key ideas in calculus—limits, derivatives, and integrals. The mathematical details of each of these pillars of calculus are then covered in subsequent chapters, which are organized into mini-lessons on topics found in a college-level calculus course. Each mini-lesson focuses first on developing the intuition behind calculus and then on conceptual and computational mastery. Nearly 200 solved examples and more than 300 exercises allow for ample opportunities to practice calculus. And additional resources—including video tutorials and interactive graphs—are available on the book’s website.

Calculus Simplified also gives you the option of personalizing your calculus journey. For example, you can learn all of calculus with zero knowledge of exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions—these are discussed at the end of each mini-lesson. You can also opt for a more in-depth understanding of topics—chapter appendices provide additional insights and detail. Finally, an additional appendix explores more in-depth real-world applications of calculus.

Learning calculus should be an exciting voyage, not a daunting task. Calculus Simplified gives you the freedom to choose your calculus experience, and the right support to help you conquer the subject with confidence.

· An accessible, intuitive introduction to first-semester calculus

· Nearly 200 solved problems and more than 300 exercises (all with answers)

· No prior knowledge of exponential, logarithmic, or trigonometric functions required

· Additional online resources—video tutorials and supplementary exercises—provided

ABOUT THE BOOK

I still remember the moment this book beckoned me from the shelf. It was a chaotic time in my life. I was juggling working at a biotech company, planning a wedding, and tending to my senior dog, Chancho. I stressed out over everything, while knowing that none of it brought me closer to my dream. After every mind-numbing work day, I regretted ignoring my passion to write.

Once I picked up Crush It!, I soon found myself sitting Indian-style at FedEx, like a bookworm at a library.

What does it mean to live your passion? Gary writes:

It means that when you get up for work every morning, every single morning, you are pumped because you get to talk about or work with or do the thing that interests you the most in the world. You don't live for vacations because you don't need a break from what you're doing - working, playing, and relaxing are one and the same. You don't even pay attention to how many hours you're working because to you, it's not really work. You're making money, but you'd do whatever it is you're doing for free.

Every year, thousands of students go to university to study mathematics (single honours or combined with another subject). Many of these students are extremely intelligent and hardworking, but even the best will, at some point, struggle with the demands of making the transition to advanced mathematics. Some have difficulty adjusting to independent study and to learning from lectures. Other struggles, however, are more fundamental: the mathematics shifts in focus from calculation to proof, so students are expected to interact with it in different ways. These changes need not be mysterious - mathematics education research has revealed many insights into the adjustments that are necessary - but they are not obvious and they do need explaining. This no-nonsense book translates these research-based insights into practical advice for a student audience. It covers every aspect of studying for a mathematics degree, from the most abstract intellectual challenges to the everyday business of interacting with lecturers and making good use of study time. Part 1 provides an in-depth discussion of advanced mathematical thinking, and explains how a student will need to adapt and extend their existing skills in order to develop a good understanding of undergraduate mathematics. Part 2 covers study skills as these relate to the demands of a mathematics degree. It suggests practical approaches to learning from lectures and to studying for examinations while also allowing time for a fulfilling all-round university experience. The first subject-specific guide for students, this friendly, practical text will be essential reading for anyone studying mathematics at university.
ABOUT THE BOOK

We all know about Cleopatra VII, her seductive ways, her wanton affairs with two of the mightiest men of Rome and her demise by an asp bite. We picture her as Elizabeth Taylor in the 1960's eponymous flop and think of Mark Antony as Richard Burton. We know all about her. Or do we?

According to biographer Stacy Schiff, we do not even know what Cleopatra looked like. We've seen some coins and sculptures purporting to be Cleopatra. We do know that she ruled in Egypt for 22 tumultuous years, trying to keep her kingdom from being absorbed by the rapacious, provincial Romans. She had a child by Julius Ceasar and three more children by Mark Antony. But who was this remarkable last Pharaoh of Egypt?

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK

From the age of eighteen, until her death twenty-two years later at thirty-nine, Cleopatra VII Philopator was the acknowledged ruler of Egypt. For several years, she was exiled within her country by her brother Ptolemy XIII's advisers and forced to raise her own army. Cleopatra was more than up to the challenge and at age 21, smuggled herself (either in a bag or a rug, depending on which historian you read) into the palace where Julius Caesar was living and presented herself to him. This audacious act typified how Cleopatra reigned and attempted to keep her kingdom as an ally of Rome, rather than a province.

When you strip away all the Roman propagandizing and vilifying of this powerful woman, you find that Cleopatra was a savvy, intelligent, highly educated ruler with a clear vision of the practical politics of her day.

The Scrum.org Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I) and Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO I) certifications require that students demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of Scrum through a rigorous assessment. The certification is not proof of attendance, but is rather proof of Scrum knowledge. This certificates are lifelong, and do not require any additional payments or renewal.

The Scrum.org Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I) and Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO I) are 60 minute time boxed assessment where you have to answer 80 questions (in English) of multiple choice, very similar in style to the Scrum Open assessment. You get one attempt (for the fees you pay) and you decide when and where to take it. There is no expiration date. You are not required to attend an assessment center and can take it from the comfort of your own home. If you do not pass the exam you can pay the exams fees again and retake the exam.

Here are the Steps on taking (and passing) the Scrum.org Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I) and Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO I) assessment and gaining certification:

1) If you are very new to Scrum and have never part of a Scrum team, then I would recommend you to take a course. Attend a Scrum.org Professional Scrum Master or Professional Scrum Product Owner course and read these notes once you are done.

2) Read the Scrum Guide and keep this reference book open while doing so. The Guide is extremely condensed and thus we have decomposed & categorized the most important information present on the Guide.

3) All the important information present on the SCRUM Guide is in this quick reference guide. Make sure you read the categorized information along with reading the Scrum guide.

4) If you see information missing on the reference guide, then add it as needed. Highlight the points you want. Make this your workbook. Be thorough with all the content.

5) Go through the questions at the bottom of the Book. These questions are compiled very carefully. Go through the answers and make sure you understand the concepts. Do the Scrum Open assessment until you can do it fast and score close to 100% 3 times in a row.
