Service Description

This book is designed to enable students of calculus to develop their skills in solving word problems. Most calculus textbooks present this topic in a cursory manner, forcing the student to struggle with the techniques of setting up and solving complex verbal problems. This book, which may be used as a supplement to all calculus textbooks, is presented in a manner that has proved so successful with the other books in the How to Solve Word Problems series: • Concise definitions and discussion of appropriate theory in easily understood terms. • Fully worked out solutions to illustrative examples. • Supplementary problems with complete solutions. The purpose of this book is to increase the student’s confidence in his or her ability to solve word problems. The material is presented in an easy-to-understand, readable manner and if the reader is willing to invest a little time and effort, he or she will be rewarded with a skill which will prove invaluable.
