Noriko is just getting started as a junior reporter for the Asagake Times. She wants to cover the hard-hitting issues, like world affairs and politics, but does she have the smarts for it? Thankfully, her overbearing and math-minded boss, Mr. Seki, is here to teach her how to analyze her stories with a mathematical eye.
In The Manga Guide to Calculus, you’ll 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.
This EduManga book is a translation from a bestselling series in Japan, co-published with Ohmsha, Ltd. of Tokyo, Japan.
