ab: The book reviews matheamtical concepts and techniques that are
prerequisites for calculus. It is intended to be used along with a
calculus text in a first course in calculus. It sets the stage for
calculus topics and uses calculus terminology and notation. The four
distinct modes description, algebraic forms, graphs and data are used
in each topic. Informations are translated from one mode to another.
Exercises and solutions are given. The single chapters are companions
to the topics: Cartesian coordinates; functions; limits; continuous
functions; infinity; change rates; differentiation rules; trigonometric
functions; implicit and repeated differentiation; related rates; linear
approximations and differentials; exponential, inverse, and logarithmic
functions; extreme values; curve sketching; antidifferentiation; area
and Riemann sums; definite integral.
