Calculus without Limits is an original exposition of single-variable calculus using the classic differential approach. By using differentials (as opposed to limits), the book provides a seamless transition from elementary calculus to elementary ordinary differential equations. Home schoolers and people needing a quick but thorough review of elementary calculus concepts will benefit from this book. A Third Edition with updates and index is currently available on Amazon.
