The Calculus Diaries PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Calculus Diaries free pdf Jennifer Ouellette never took maths in the sixth form, mostly because she - like most of us - assumed she wouldn't need it much in real life. But then the English graduate, now an award-winning science-writer, had a change of heart and decided to revisit the equations and formulas that had haunted her youth. The Calculus Diaries is the fun and fascinating account of a year spent confronting her numbers-phobia head on. With wit and verve, Ouellette explains how she discovered that maths could apply to everything from petrol mileages to dieting, rollercoaster rides to winning in Las Vegas.

    This book offers an overview of the central ideas in calculus and gives examples of how calculus is used to translate many real-world phenomena into mathematical functions. Beginning with an explanation of the two major parts of calculus - differentiation and integration - Gudmund R Iversen illustrates how calculus is used in statistics: to distinguish between the mean and the median- to derive the least squares formulas for regression co-efficients- to find values of parameters from theoretical distributions- and to find a statistical p-value when using one of the continuous test variables such as the t-variable..
