Jefferson Hane Weaver fills this gentle guide for the mathematically-challenged with entertaining anecdotes and fabulous wry humor as he untangles the web of algebra, geometry, and trigonometry that leads to calculus.

Don't let the integral intimidate you and the derivative defy you!

We learn that calculus is flexible, fun, and exciting -- dealing with speed, acceleration, and motion.
