Calculus Made Easy

Article metrics


THE author of this book has added many worked examples and exercises to those in his first edition; otherwise the book is but little altered and we have not much to add to the remarks we made five years ago. The motto is, “What one fool can do, another can.” Perhaps there may still be too many encouraging remarks of a jokesome nature and too many expressions of disdain for the stupidity of the usual methods of teacb'no-, hut the title of the book is justified. The authpr does show that the most fundamental operations of the calculus are easy to understand and may be performed by beginners with success, that is, without vague notions of being wrong.
