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 and the
economics of pollution.

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*.
