Frre Calculus - A Liberation from Concepts and Proofs

Qun Lin , World Scientific Ltd , 2008
Conventional calculus is too hard and too complex. Students are forced to learn too many theorems and proofs. In "Free Calculus", the author suggests a direct approach to the two fundamental concepts of calculus - differentiation and integration - using two inequalities. Regular calculus is condensed into a single concise chapter. This makes the teaching of physics in step with the calculus teaching.
