Morris Kline: Calculus, An Intuitive and Physical Approach.
A good friend of mine is interested in teaching himself upper level mathematics. Unfortunately, he has never taken a course above Pre-calculus. He doesn't have enough money to attend classes at the local university, so he asked if I would be able to recommend a book he could take out of the library, since I am beginning my graduate studies in math this fall. From talking to him, he seems to learn best when he can visualize the nature of the mathematical phenomena, so I was hoping someone could recommend an introductory calculus text that is heavy with geometric interpretations when describing the course content. I looked at several texts, and I suggested a few candidates, but if anyone knows of a book they believe fits the bill, I would be most obliged.
Thank you, Ackbeet. I looked into that book, and I am disappointed to report that my local library didn't have a copy of it. I put in a request for it, and they got a copy of volume 2 of the text. Unfortunately, they didn't have any copies of volume 1 in their system, so they offered to purchase a copy of the book. I am not sure how that is going. In the meantime, would anyone have any other suggestions?
