Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646–1716), left, and Sir Isaac Newton (1643–1727), right, are considered founders of calculus. 
 
 
After a quick review of the skills we need to study calculus (Chapter 1–3), we will begin with the concept of a limit and continuity in Chapter 4. We will then continue to learn about the derivative of a function and how to find it in Chapter 5. Derivatives have many important applications that will be discussed in chapter 6. In chapter 7, we will learn how to find a function if its derivative is given. Chapter 8 will discuss how to find the area under a curve. This process is called integration. Finally, in the last chapter, we will talk about the applications of integration.   
 
There are more than 350 fully solved examples that can help you gain a thorough understanding and master the skills you need to ace your exams in elementary calculus.
