Calculus for Middle Schoolers

Do you have a middle school or early high school student who is advanced in math and eager to tackle more complex math topics? If so, Calculus for Middle Schoolers might be the book you are looking for.

Serena Swegle presents basic precalculus and calculus concepts in a friendly, non-intimidating format (because in all honesty large heavy advanced math textbooks can be a bit scary). She introduces concepts such as e, logs, natural logs, basic trigonometry, limits, derivatives, and integrals. There are informative full-color illustrations and sample problems.

This is not a textbook but rather an introduction to concepts to help make calculus a less scary concept. It could also be helpful for parents who are facing helping their high school students navigate advanced math! (As a side-note, I had my son who is a college math major verify that the math covered was presented accurately).

Calculus for Middle Schoolers takes complex concepts and presents them in an understandable and non-scary format.
