Summary
    First Semester Calculus for Students of Mathematics and Related Disciplines equips students with a working knowledge of the fundamental principles of calculus. The book provides an engaging and accessible entry point into a critical field of study. It prepares students for more advanced courses in calculus and also helps them understand how to apply basic principles of calculus to solve problems within a wide range of disciplines, including business, biology, engineering, science, liberal arts, and mathematics.

    The text employs rigorous treatment of early calculus topics and detailed explanations to facilitate greater understanding and connection with the material. Over the course of five chapters, students learn about symbolic logic, continuity and limits, derivatives, mathematical and real-world applications of derivatives, and antiderivatives and their applications. Throughout, students are provided with rich guidance and copious opportunities to deepen their personal understanding of the subject matter.
