Product Description

Calculus is the first book in the Life of Fred University Mathematics Series, and covers two years' worth of college-level calculus.

Twenty-four chapters are included; each ends with six problem sets (20-30 minutes each) that are named after individual cities. Worked solutions for approximately one-third of cities problems are provided to students. Interspersed throughout are instructions to complete the "Your Turn to Play" problems that are grouped together at the back of the book. These are randomly assigned numbers to prevent accidentally seeing an answer while checking answers (e.g. numbered as 45, 888, 500, 317, 923, 71, etc.); all answers are provided. The "Further Ado" appendix provides even more practice opportunities with extra-hard questions for motivated students. Teachers may wish to purchase the sold-separately Life of Fred Calculus City Answers for answers to all city questions not included in this textbook.

Life of Fred Calculus covers: Functions, Limits, Speed, Slope, Derivatives, Concavity, Trig, Related Rates, Curvature, Integrals, Area, Work, Centroids, Logs, Conics, Infinite Series, Solids of Revolution, Polar Coordinates, Hyperbolic Trig, Vectors, Partial Derivatives, Double Integrals, Vector Calculus, Differential Equations.

Life of Fred is a unique, complete (not supplemental), math program that uses a highly engaging narrative to teach math without fear and with enjoyment. Students follow the life of Fred Gauss (a math professor who grows up to the age of six), who has many humorous, unlikely, and zany adventures over the course of the curriculum. Math becomes relevant and important because the need for math occurs in Fred's life (and he sees math everywhere). Witty and truly entertaining, these books will engage students in a way unlike any other math program - --while also instilling a solid understanding of the principles of mathematics without an abundance of repetitive drills. This series is perfect for inquisitive students who struggle with the relevance of math, or anyone looking for a creative approach to mathematic thinking!

544 pages, indexed; hardcover, non-consumable textbook with Smyth-sewn binding. Students write their answers on separate paper.
