This book is intended for those who are familiar with first year calculus, written by an author with four decades of teaching experience. It presents some very unique problem situations not available in ordinary textbooks. Many are original contributions among which are the articles on the Weight Watcher Function, collection of rooftop solar energy, measuring very hot temperatures, highway speed surveillance, and determining the rotational speeds of galaxies. Other articles deal with material not easy to find which is made readily understandable for the reader. A few examples include the one on the rotating mercury reflector, a pursuit curve, cooling tea, and the curious fountain problem whose diagram is pictured on the cover.

About the Author:

Richard Palmaccio has been an educator in secondary schools for 48 years, beginning in the Wellesley MA public schools, continuing at Pine Crest School in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, where he was the mathematics department chairman, and presently at St. Sebastian's School in Needham, MA. He has published numerous articles in The Mathematics Teacher, the MATYC Journal, and the Mathematics and Informatics Quarterly through the years. He is currently Editor-In-Chief of the Mathematics and Informatics Quarterly which is published in Singapore for the international mathematics community. He published one of the first computer programs which simulates gravitational attraction between astronomical bodies for the IBM PC in 1984. Subsequently, he published a suite of programs in 1986 which essentially gave a computer the functionality of a TI 89 calculator in being able to produce graphs in four modes: XY coordinates, XYZ coordinates, parametric equations and polar coordinates. Previous books have been Problems in Calculus and Analytic Geometry published by J. Weston Walch, Portland, ME, Problems in Calculus, published by SCT Publishing in Singapore, and Problems in Geometry, also published by SCT Publishing.
