Calculus, Part 3, Student's Text, Unit No. 70. Revised Edition.
Beck, A.; And Others
This is part three of a three-part SMSG calculus text for high school students. One of the goals of the text is to present calculus as a mathematical discipline as well as presenting its practical uses. The authors emphasize the importance of being able to interpret the concepts and theory in terms of models to which they apply. The text demonstrates the origins of the ideas of the calculus in practical problems; attempts to express these ideas precisely and develop them logically; and finally, returns to the problems and applies the theorems resulting from that development. Chapter topics include: (1) vectors and curves; (2) mechanics; (3) numerical analysis; (4) sequences and series; and (5) geometricl optics and waves. (MP)
