3rd Edition
Barbara Lee Bleau, Ph.D. - All books by this author

Updated and expanded to include the optional use of graphing calculators, this combination textbook and workbook is a good teach-yourself refresher course for men and women who took a calculus course in school, have since forgotten most of what they learned, and now need some practical calculus for business purposes or advanced education. The book is also very useful as a supplementary text for students who are taking calculus and finding it a struggle. Each progressive work unit offers clear instruction and worked-out examples. Special emphasis has been placed on business and economic applications. Topics covered include functions and their graphs, derivatives, optimization problems, exponential and logarithmic functions, integration, and partial derivatives.

From the Reviews:
"Although Forgotten Calculus is suitable as a course textbook, the excellent index makes the book useful to someone who is brushing up on forgotten calculus skills. A calculus student who needs additional practice problems can benefit from the instant feedback that this book provides. I also recommend it for tutoring situations and learning-center libraries."
