Calculus isn't just a required math class to weed out would-be science majors-it's a useful way to understand the patterns in physics, economics, and the natural world. With its distinctive mix of serious educational content and Japanese-style comics, The Manga Guide to Calculus will entertain you while it helps you understand the key concepts of calculus (and ace those exams). Our story begins as Noriko, a recent liberal arts grad, arrives at a branch office of the Asagake Newspaper to start her career as a journalist. With the help of her overbearing and math-minded boss Kakeru, she's finally able to do some real reporting. But Noriko soon discovers the mathematical functions behind all the stories she struggles to cover. Using real-world examples like probability, supply and demand, polluting companies, and shochu density, Kakeru explains to Noriko: Techniques of differentiation and integration How to integrate and differentiate trigonometric and other complicated functions Multivariate calculus and partial differentiation Taylor expansions Reluctant calculus students of all abilities will enjoy following along with Noriko as she learns calculus from Kakeru's quirky stories and examples. This charming and easy-to-read guide also includes an appendix with answers to the book's many useful exercises.
