An undergraduate degree in mathematics provides an excellent basis for graduate work in mathematics or computer science, or for employment in such mathematics-related fields as systems analysis, operations research, or actuarial science. The path chosen by this book is to start like calculus does, in 1-space (ie, on the line) and focus on the basic definitions and ideas of one-variable calculus: limits, continuity, derivatives, riemann integrals, and a few more advanced topics.

Algebra and geometry with calculus one of the earliest algebra topics learned is how to find the slope of a line--a numerical value that describes just how slanted that line is calculus gives us a much more generalized method of finding slopes with it, we can find not only how steeply a line slopes, but indeed, how steeply any curve slopes at any given point.
