All owls are carnivorous birds of prey and live mainly on a diet of insects and small rodents such as
mice, rats, and hares. Some owls are also specifically adapted to hunt fish. They are very adept i
Chapter 11 Inverse Trigonometric functions
In this chapter, we investigate inverse trigonometric functions1 . As in other examples, the inverse of a given function leads to exchange of the roles of th
Chapter 10 Trigonometric functions
In this chapter we will explore periodic and oscillatory phenomena. The trigonometric functions will be the basis for much of what we construct1 , and hence, we rst
Chapter 9 Exponential Growth and Decay: Dierential Equations
9.1 Observations about the exponential function
y = f (x) = ex namely, that dy = ex = y dx so that this function satises the relationship d
Chapter 8 Exponential functions
In this chapter, we leave behind the power functions and polynomials, and explore a new type of function, exponential growth. We nd that this function is closely relate

Chapter 6 Optimization
In this chapter, we collect a variety of problems in which the ideas developed in earlier material are put to use. In particular, we will use calculus to find local (and global)
Chapter 5 What the Derivative tells us about a function
The derivative of a function contains a lot of important information about the behaviour of a function. In this chapter we will focus on how pro
Chapter 4 The Derivative
In our investigation so far, we have dened the notion of an instantaneous rate of change, and called this the derivative. We have also identied this mathematical concept with
Chapter 3 Average velocity, Average Rates of Change, and Secant Lines
In this chapter, we extend the idea of slope of a straight line to a related concept for a curve. We will rst encounter the idea o
Chapter 2 Review of Simple Functions
In this chapter we review a few basic concepts related to functions, and introduce the simplest family of functions that have interesting, nontrivial properties: t
Chapter 12 Approximation methods
12.1 Introduction
In this chapter we explore a few techniques for nding approximate solutions to problems of great practical signicance. The techniques here described
