a worth while text for T-89 calculator know how. I have to be honest I bought this for my son. He is in his JR year in Highschool. The Calc class is sharing this book to help them with calc and how to use their T-89 calculators to do it. My son says this book is great and works well for him.

Many of us are familiar with the very successful For Dummies series. Calculus for the TI-89 comes from an entirely different perspective. I suppose you could call it Calculus for the Brave. Specifically, two things distinguish this book (indeed series) from the Yellow Giant. First, this book puts the TI in the background and orients itself around a theory of calculus, beginning with the limit. Or, one can say it begins with Zeno and follows developments to Gauss. Second, it uses exercises to expand the mathematical implications of TI-oriented tutorials. This creates a nice balance between the Calculus as a technology and as a cultural edifice.
