The Manga Guide to Calculus


Select Quantity!

Follow along with Noriko as she learns that calculus is more than just a class designed to weed out would-be science majors. You'll see that calculus is a useful way to understand the patterns in physics, economics, and the world around us, with help from real-world examples like probability, supply and demand curves, the economics of pollution, and the density of Shochu (a Japanese liquor).

Mr. Seki teaches Noriko how to:

Use differentiation to understand a function's rate of change
Apply the fundamental theorem of calculus, and grasp the relationship between a function's derivative and its integral
Integrate and differentiate trigonometric and other complicated functions
Use multivariate calculus and partial differentiation to deal with tricky functions
Use Taylor Expansions to accurately imitate difficult functions with polynomials
Whether you're struggling through a calculus course for the first time or you just need a painless refresher, you'll find what you're looking for in The Manga Guide to Calculus.
