Scholars who've used Smith/Minton's "Calculus" say it truly is more uncomplicated to learn than the other math ebook they have used. Smith/Minton wrote the ebook for the scholars who will use it, in a language that they comprehend, and with the expectancy that their backgrounds could have gaps. Smith/Minton offer unprecedented, reality-based purposes that attract scholars' pursuits and reveal the beauty of math on this planet round us.

Let us try an example: y = x 2 at P (1, 1). See Fig. 2. nearby point to (1, 1) is Q,, = (1 + h, (1 + h)2� where h is a small number, positive or negative. By the slope formula, A = (1 h)2 - 1 ( l + h)2 l - + sIope of PQ . ( l + h) I h So far so good; now we must test some small values of h and see if a message comes through. l. • The word 1ecut simply means a line through two or more distinct points of a curve. 65 2.

Domain Is y defined for all real x or is there some restriction on x? For example, y = Jl=XI is defined only for Ix I :5 1 and y = 1/(x - 1 )(x - 4) is not defined for x = 1 or x = 4. Range Is there some limitation on y? For example, if y = 1/(1 + x2� then by inspection, 0 < y s 1 . The graph does not extend above the level y = 1 or below the level y = 0. Sign ofy Can you tell where y > 0 or y < O? For example y = 1/x is positive for x > 0 and negative for x < 0. Also y is never 0. Increasing or decreasing?

The answer makes good sense geometrically. The slope Ja2 is always positive, except that it is zero at a = As I a I increases, Ja2 increases rapidly, so the curve Ii slope of PQ,, difference quotient P P, Q11 0). It.
