Retired USAF aircrew (navigator). Since then, tech support and aircrew training contractor. Favorite line in class - "I don't mind of you nod off, but please don't snore, you might wake me up." And I am the one teaching the class.

Since my calculus text is in the Smithsonian, what text would you recommend for a refresher course?

Since I am not actually sure what 'calculus' is - I assume I should just stop thinking about this post, right?

It really depends on what you're wanting out of a refresher course.

You want a "just the facts ma'am" review?

Or do you want a "here's why it works" explained in a way that's different than the formal symbolism that your textbook that's now in the Smithsonian used for proving everything?
