Review

A TOTALLY different way to learn calculus - you can do it even before high school. -- --Homeschoolmath.net

Even a mathophobe like myself was able to work through the book without trouble, and my third-grade student, who is working on a fourth-grade level in our math program, has made it part-way through the lessons without any trouble. I wanted my husband's opinion on whether this was really calculus, for it seemed way too easy. --EclecticHomeSchool.net

As I said before, I really loved the study of mathematics - especially calculus. But I never realized its use and richness until perusing these books. Mine was a theoretical study. This book gives you all application. This is an answer to 'When are we ever going to have to use this?' - a great answer. This 'study of change' could well transform your unmotivated mathematician into a rocket scientist (or an engineer, physicist, astronaut....) --RainbowResource.com

I have an intensive math-oriented son that wanted to learn calculus. No question, this program breaks it out for the age level it's targeted to and definitely makes it easy enough for them to learn.

But it's really, really boring. There's no real context given so that they understand the concepts--other than mostly racetrack references. So while my son had no problem doing the work and learning the equations, he lost interest in it for lack of any kind of engagement or context outside of running races unless I got in and tried to really find alternative scenarios for him… which meant I was going to be way more involved than I should have had to be.

Checking the answers was VERY easy because the answers were in the corner of each problem (but it's not as cheat-able as it sounds). That being said, if the answers were wrong, the parent could potentially have to go back and re-learn a few lessons to be able to help the child figure out the answer. Not always, but it happens. Usually, it's in such baby steps that it's easy enough to find the issue.

My 4th grader is enjoying this book very much! He is clear, helpful, and doesn't use a lot of big words. A nice introduction!

This is a great book to introduce young children to calculus. My son works on a 3rd-4th grade math level and is really enjoying the problems. The only complaint I have is that the problems are all based around the same idea: a runner running down a football field. There are enough exercises included to teach a child that picks it up a little slower. I have my son skip about every other one because he grasps the concepts quickly and gets bored with the repetition. But for a quick way to teach a child the fundamentals of the mathematics of motion, I don't think there is a better book out there.

Calculus Without Tears is a good way for younger kids who get bored to do math. It is also a good way to prepare for school, Calculus, etc.
