Students often struggle to understand Calculus and get through their first Calculus course. And to make things worse, many popular textbooks reach a whopping 1,000 pages to introduce this crucial subject, needlessly frustrating and overwhelming students. Calculus in 5 Hours develops the confidence you need in approximately 124 pages.

You may not realize it, but you're smarter than you think you are. The problem is that assigned textbooks give exhaustive explanations of every proof and theorem in Calculus. But too many details can impair learning - especially when you're learning something for the first time - creating doubt and uncertainty in your ability to understand. What's needed is a straightforward guide to give you the basic concepts.

Calculus in 5 Hours is a good companion to any Calculus course and an excellent resource for refreshing your knowledge of the subject. Here's what it can do for you:

* Organize your understanding of Calculus for quick and easy recall on tests and homework assignments

* Present straightforward drawings that demonstrate concepts with minimal effort on your part

* Highlight simple examples without burdening you with useless details

Calculus in 5 Hours covers roughly 75% of a first-semester course and leaves out the extra material that adds little value in learning Calculus itself. So, if you need a comprehensive textbook that goes through every detail of Calculus, then this book is not for you.

Instead, you'll get a straightforward and simple explanation of Calculus that can be absorbed in less than a day, strengthening your knowledge and confidence at the same time. This allows you to focus on what's truly important - gaining knowledge and achievement as fast as possible.

Get Calculus in 5 Hours to shorten your learning curve and gain the understanding you need to be successful today.

Slay the calculus monster with this user-friendly guide

Calculus For Dummies, 2nd Edition makes calculus manageable—even if you're one of the many students who sweat at the thought of it. By breaking down differentiation and integration into digestible concepts, this guide helps you build a stronger foundation with a solid understanding of the big ideas at work. This user-friendly math book leads you step-by-step through each concept, operation, and solution, explaining the "how" and "why" in plain English instead of math-speak. Through relevant instruction and practical examples, you'll soon learn that real-life calculus isn't nearly the monster it's made out to be.

Calculus is a required course for many college majors, and for students without a strong math foundation, it can be a real barrier to graduation. Breaking that barrier down means recognizing calculus for what it is—simply a tool for studying the ways in which variables interact. It's the logical extension of the algebra, geometry, and trigonometry you've already taken, and Calculus For Dummies, 2nd Edition proves that if you can master those classes, you can tackle calculus and win.

Includes foundations in algebra, trigonometry, and pre-calculus concepts Explores sequences, series, and graphing common functions Instructs you how to approximate area with integration Features things to remember, things to forget, and things you can't get away with

Stop fearing calculus, and learn to embrace the challenge. With this comprehensive study guide, you'll gain the skills and confidence that make all the difference. Calculus For Dummies, 2nd Edition provides a roadmap for success, and the backup you need to get there.

From preeminent math personality and author of The Joy of x, a brilliant and endlessly appealing explanation of calculus – how it works and why it makes our lives immeasurably better. 
 
Without calculus, we wouldn’t have cell phones, TV, GPS, or ultrasound. We wouldn’t have unraveled DNA or discovered Neptune or figured out how to put 5,000 songs in your pocket. 
 
Though many of us were scared away from this essential, engrossing subject in high school and college, Steven Strogatz’s brilliantly creative, down‐to‐earth history shows that calculus is not about complexity; it’s about simplicity. It harnesses an unreal number—infinity—to tackle real‐world problems, breaking them down into easier ones and then reassembling the answers into solutions that feel miraculous. 
 
Infinite Powers recounts how calculus tantalized and thrilled its inventors, starting with its first glimmers in ancient Greece and bringing us right up to the discovery of gravitational waves (a phenomenon predicted by calculus). Strogatz reveals how this form of math rose to the challenges of each age: how to determine the area of a circle with only sand and a stick; how to explain why Mars goes “backwards” sometimes; how to make electricity with magnets; how to ensure your rocket doesn’t miss the moon; how to turn the tide in the fight against AIDS. 
 
As Strogatz proves, calculus is truly the language of the universe. By unveiling the principles of that language, Infinite Powers makes us marvel at the world anew.
