Calculus: A Computer Oriented Presentation, Part 1 [and] Part 2.
Stenberg, Warren; Walker, Robert J.
Parts one and two of a one-year computer-oriented calculus course (without analytic geometry) are presented. The ideas of calculus are introduced and motivated through computer (i.e., algorithmic) concepts. An introduction to computing via algorithms and a simple flow chart language allows the book to be self-contained, except that material on programming languages is excluded in order to allow the use of any language. Chapter topics include sequences, integrals, applications, functions, maxima, chain rule, derivatives, logarithmic and exponential functions, infinite series, and differential equations. (MP)
