The best I can say is it was free. But it has limited pedagogical value, it is uneven, it would be hard to learn Calculus from this book alone. Frankly, I was disappointed to see gaps, jumping around without developing topics properly, etc. Only a person who already teaches Calculus might get a little something out of it, but what is the point then?

P.S. I'm a university mathematics professor and have taught for over 40 years, much of the time teaching Calculus.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm NOT a math person, but.... October 7, 2013
Verified Purchase
I'm an art, visual, and music person. I freaked out when my daughter gravitated toward math in high school. I knew I couldn't help her past Algebra... and even that was growing a little foggy. She did well and even got her college degree in math - no thanks to me! haha! I never went past Trig in high school, and with a music degree, I was told I didn't need any more math. Now, I want to re-learn through Trig and even step into Calculus. These math apps are simple to understand (even for an artsy-fartsy gal like me) and yet cover so much. I'm starting back in Algebra again, but have downloaded through Calculus. If the first app is anything like this, I think I might actually be able to do it. Having earned a Masters in Education, I would recommend these for any number of situations: The student who is struggling and is in danger of falling behind... The college student who hasn't taken math since 11th grade (like me!)... The parent who wants to help their child... and ole' grandmas like me who just still love to learn and love a challenge.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Can't Believe This (Kindle) Book Was Free! October 8, 2013

It's been a few years since I studied Trig, Algebra, and Calculus (a few meaning around 30). This book is an excellent refresher/reference for getting back some useful skills. I wouldn't call it a beginners' guide but is great as a companion and reference source for someone who's learned the techniques or is studying them for the first time.

3.0 out of 5 stars With revision, or authorship, this could be great. December 8, 2013
Verified Purchase
This series is a great idea, and I'm grateful for the compilation of the internet's free knowledge, but the editor of the Calculus volume has clearly not taken a class in calculus, and may possibly be a robot.

Calculus introduces two new operations to regular math: the derivative and the integral. The first chapter of this book claims to review the framework of other math on which these operations depend. Instead, it opens with many advanced examples from engineering, economics and the physics of electromagnetism that use calculus operations. If you are taking calculus with a good teacher, read this to review and to hear different perspectives. If you are teaching yourself, maybe start with a clearer book and then read this for enrichment?

You could probably make sense of the advanced stuff in the beginning if you've already mastered the hard stuff at the end, otherwise you're going to have to throw perfectionism out the window to be able to turn these pages. You're simply not going to be able to understand how calculus applies to electromagnetism on page 22, before the book has introduced the basic concepts of calculus around page 40. If you get past that, page 23 will treat you to, "Calculus has widely used in physics and engineering. In this atom,
we will learn that instantaneous velocity can be obtained from a
position-time curve of a moving object by calculating derivatives of
the curve."

This is not exaclty Eglish, but it does assume a knowledge of calculus. The book has not yet given you the definition of a derivative.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wasn't what I expected July 13, 2014

I tried to use this as a supplement book when I was out of school for a month after having my son to try to keep up with my class. I honestly think that this book is a waste of time

Good for a refresher in calculus. Must known some principle before reading the book. For a beginner or someone starting out its okay for a second book for reference material. Gives okay examples. Some of the example it has a tendency to skip steps An not fully explain what happens.
