Description

Computing for Calculus focuses on BASIC as the computer language used for solving calculus problems.

This book discusses the input statement for numeric variables, advanced intrinsic functions, numerical estimation of limits, and linear approximations and tangents. The elementary estimation of areas, numerical and string arrays, line drawing algorithms, and bisection and secant method are also elaborated. This text likewise covers the implicit functions and differentiation, upper and lower rectangular estimates, Simpson's rule and parabolic approximation, and interpolating polynomials. Other topics include the Taylor polynomials, estimating the limit of a sequence, infinite series, and level curves and central projection of surfaces.

This publication is beneficial to math students and specialists who use computer languages for educational purposes.
