OT: Free Calculus eBook


Senior Member
I've been brushing up on my calc and diff eq. I found a superb free eBook: Calculus by MIT Prof. Gilbert Strang.

Strang presents his information by first stressing and clearly explaining fundamental concepts, then, if possible, relating said concepts to real-world situations. He carefully builds on each concept to explain each additional concept.

Unlike most other math books, this book (and its accompanying Student and Teacher Guides) is excellent for self study.

I wish I'd had teachers of Prof. Strang's ilk when I was in school. The man can flat TEACH! It's obvious from his writings that he loves to teach, and that he was born to teach.
