Summary note

In this textbook on calculus of one variable, applications to the natural sciences play a central role. Examples from biology, chemistry, and physics are discussed in detail without compromising the mathematical aspects essential to learning differential and integral calculus. Calculus for the Natural Sciences distinguishes itself from other textbooks on the topic by balancing theory, mathematical techniques, and applications to motivate students and bridge the gap between mathematics and the natural sciences and engineering; employing real data to convey the main ideas underlying the scientific method; and using SageMath and R to perform calculations and write short programs, thus giving the teacher more time to explain important concepts.
