CALCULUS
The Analysis of Functions
Peter D. Taylor
From the foreword by Andrew
M. Gleason, Hollis Professor of Mathematicks
and Natural Philosophy, Harvard
University:
"Peter
Taylor…has designed a calculus course that emphasizes the concepts of
calculus far more than the symbolic manipulations. Instructors who want
to adopt an interactive teaching style will find this book with its
marvelous collection of problems extremely helpful, and their students
will learn to think more about the concepts of calculus."
