Soo T. Tan has published numerous papers in Optimal Control Theory and Numerical Analysis. He received his S.B. degree from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, his M.S. degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and his Ph.D. from the University of California at Los Angeles. "One of the most important lessons I learned from my early experience teaching these courses is that many of the students come into these courses with some degree of apprehension. This awareness led to the intuitive approach I have adopted in all of my texts."Review:
"Tan's book is an excellent choice for a calculus course aimed at a non-science audience. The main strengths of the text are its clear, step-by-step presentation, emphasis on problems and applications, methodical review of algebra and other precalculus material, and a rich supply of problems."
"I've like using Tan for the following reason: It doesn't get in the way! The book allows me to teach the course the way I want to."
"Tan's clarity and conciseness make the text easier for students to follow. The clean presentation of examples and showing small algebra steps seem well suited for our students."
"Tan makes the material easy for students to learn without simplifying the content or lowering the level. Even students with somewhat weak algebra skills manage to learn the calculus and simultaneously sharpen their algebra skills."
"The variety of exercises is also very good. They expose students to most of the classic computational problems they will run into, and the application problems run the gamut of uses of calculus in different fields."
