Designed to be read by students, this book--written using Mathematica 6--focuses on topics needed for success in calculus, and prepares students for integral calculus. Includes a preface for instructors and step-by-step solutions for odd-numbered exercises so that students can model their own applications of what they’ve learned. In addition, chapter openers and end-of-chapter summaries highlight the material to be studied.
