Provides a transition for those students in introductory physics learning basic calculus when entering more senior level classes.
Early chapters provide adequate scaffolding to help students with weaker math backgrounds.
Includes numerous example problems to illustrate both math and physics principles throughout the text.
Both relevant and interesting to students with more advanced preparation.
Houses non-essential topics in appendices or starred sections.
