The calculus primer by William L Schaaf( )

7 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Comprehensive but concise, this introduction to differential and integral calculus covers all the topics usually included in a first course. The straightforward development places less emphasis on mathematical rigor, and the informal manner of presentation sets students at ease. Many carefully worked-out examples illuminate the text, in addition to numerous diagrams, problems, and answers.Bearing the needs of beginners constantly in mind, the treatment covers all the basic concepts of calculus: functions, derivatives, differentiation of algebraic and transcendental functions, partial differentiation, indeterminate forms, general and special methods of integration, the definite integral, partial integration, and other fundamentals. Ample exercises permit students to test their grasp of subjects before moving forward, making this volume appropriate not only for classroom use but also for review and home study

A bibliography of recreational mathematics by William L Schaaf( Book )

23 editions published between 1970 and 1978 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a partially annotated bibliography of books, articles and periodicals concerned with mathematical games, puzzles, tricks, amusements, and paradoxes. Because the literature in recreational mathematics has proliferated to amazing proportions since Volume 2 of this series (ed 040 874), Volume 3 is more than just an updating of the earlier monographs. The overall organization of the book has been retained, although there has been a notable rearrangement of subtopics in the interest of economy and clarity. Major changes include (1) the addition of two new sections on classroom games and recreational activities which will be quite useful for teachers; (2) a chronological synopsis of Martin Gardner's popular column in Scientific American; and (3) a glossary of terms related to recreational mathematics. The main topic headings are: Arithmetic Recreations; Number Theory as Recreation; Geometric Recreations; Topological Recreations; Magic Squares and Related Configurations; Pythagorean Recreations; Recreations in Antiquity; Combinatorial Recreations; Manipulative Recreations; and Mathematics in Related Fields.
