Ready to step up your game in calculus? This workbook isn't the usual parade of repetitive questions and answers. Author Tim Hill's approach lets you work on problems you enjoy, rather than through exercises and drills you fear, without the speed pressure, timed testing, and rote memorization that damage your experience of mathematics. Working through varied problems in this anxiety-free way helps you develop an understanding of numerical relations apart from the catalog of mathematical facts that's often stressed in classrooms and households. This number sense, common in high-achieving students, lets you apply and combine concepts, methods, and numbers flexibly, without relying on distant memories. - Solutions to basic problems are steeped in the fundamentals, including notation, terminology, definitions, theories, proofs, physical laws, and related concepts. - Advanced problems explore variations, tricks, subtleties, and real-world applications. - Problems build gradually in difficulty with little repetition. If you get stuck, then flip back a few pages for a hint or to jog your memory. - Numerous pictures depicting mathematical facts help you connect visual and symbolic representations of numbers and concepts. - Treats calculus as a problem-solving art requiring insight and intuitive understanding, not as a branch of logic requiring careful deductive reasoning. - Discards the common and damaging misconception that fast students are strong students. Good students aren't particularly fast with numbers because they think deeply and carefully about mathematics. - Detailed solutions and capsule reviews greatly reduce the need to cross reference a comprehensive calculus textbook. Topics covered: Basic trigonometry. Limits, derivatives, integrals, and graphs of basic and inverse trigonometric functions. Solids of revolution. Buffon's needle problem. The corridor problem. Simple harmonic motion. Newton's second law of motion. The hyperbolic functions sinh, cosh, and tanh. Catenaries. Prerequisite mathematics: Tangent lines. Curve sketching. Limits. Continuity. Basic derivatives. Basic integrals. Inverse functions. Maxima and minima. Inflection points. Contents 1. Review of Trigonometry 2. Elementary Trigonometry 3. Derivatives of Sine and Cosine 4. Integrals of Sine and Cosine 5. Derivatives of Other Trigonometric Functions 6. Inverse Trigonometric Functions 7. Harmonic Motion 8. Hyperbolic Functions

The jargon associated with Microsoft Excel's pivot tables ("n-dimensional cross tabulations") makes them look complex, but they're really no more than an easy way to build concise, flexible summaries of long lists of raw values. If you're working with hundreds (or hundreds of thousands) of rows, then pivot tables are the best way to look at the same information in different ways, summarize data on the fly, and spot trends and relationships. This handy guide teaches you how to use Excel's most powerful feature to crunch large amounts of data, without having to write new formulas, copy and paste cells, or reorganize rows and columns. You can download the sample workbook to follow along with the author's examples. - Create pivot tables from worksheet databases. - Rearrange pivot tables by dragging, swapping, and nesting fields. - Customize pivot tables with styles, layouts, totals, and subtotals. - Combine numbers, dates, times, or text values into custom groups. - Calculate common statistics or create custom formulas. - Filter data that you don't want to see. - Create and customize pivot charts. - Unlink a pivot table from its source data. - Control references to pivot table cells. - Plenty of tips, tricks, and timesavers. - Fully cross-referenced, linked, and searchable. Contents 1. Pivot Table Basics 2. Nesting Fields 3. Grouping Items 4. Calculations and Custom Formulas 5. Filtering Data 6. Charting Pivot Tables 7. Tricks with Pivot Tables

The mathematics of counting permutations and combinations is required knowledge for probability, statistics, professional gambling, and many other fields. But counting is hard. Students find it hard. Teachers find it hard. And in the end the only way to learn is to do many problems. Tim Hill's learn-by-example approach presents counting concepts and problems of gradually increasing difficulty. If you become lost or confused, then you can back up a bit for clarification. With practice, you'll develop the ability to decompose complex problems and then assemble the partial solutions to arrive at the final answer. The result: learn in a few weeks what conventional schools stretch into months. - Teaches general principles that can be applied to a wide variety of problems. - Avoids the mindless and excessive routine computations that characterize conventional textbooks. - Treats counting as a logically coherent discipline, not as a disjointed collection of techniques. - Restores proofs to their proper place to remove doubt, convey insight, and encourage precise logical thinking. - Omits digressions, excessive formalities, and repetitive exercises. - Provides exceptional preparation for probability and statistics courses. - Includes problems (with all solutions) that extend your knowledge rather than merely reinforce it.

Can a set be a member of itself? How do we know that the square root of 2 is irrational? Can a graph really represent a function accurately? Is a function just a rule? Does canceling (crossing out) terms mask important algebraic properties? This entirely practical book is for the student who wants a complete command of the prerequisite material on the first day of calculus class. Success in calculus depends on having a reasonable command of all that went before, yet most precalculus students are taught only simple tools and techniques, leaving them with a superficial understanding of problem-solving. Tim Hill explains why things are true and encourages students to go beyond merely memorizing ways of solving a few problems to pass exams. Teaches general principles that can be applied to a wide variety of problems. Avoids the mindless and excessive routine computations that characterize conventional textbooks. Treats the subject as a logically coherent discipline, not as a disjointed collection of techniques. Restores proofs to their proper place to remove doubt, convey insight, and encourage precise logical thinking. Omits digressions, excessive formalities, and repetitive exercises. Provides exceptional preparation for a calculus course. Includes problems (with all solutions) that extend your knowledge rather than merely reinforce it. Contents 1. Sets 2. The Real Number System 3. Functions 4. Graphs 5. Solutions About the Author Tim Hill is a statistician living in Boulder, Colorado. He holds degrees in mathematics and statistics from Stanford University and the University of Colorado. Tim has written self-teaching guides for Algebra, Trigonometry, Geometry, Precalculus, Advanced Precalculus, Permutations & Combinations, Mathematics of Money, and Excel Pivot Tables. When he's not crunching numbers, Tim climbs rocks, hikes canyons, and avoids malls.
