Description:
Calculus isn't just a required math class to weed out would-be science majors-it's a useful way to understand the patterns in physics, economics, and the natural world. With its distinctive mix of serious educational content and Japanese-style comics, The Manga Guide to Calculus will entertain you while it helps you understand the key concepts of calculus (and ace those exams).

Our story begins as Noriko, a recent liberal arts grad, arrives at a branch office of the Asagake Newspaper to start her career as a journalist. With the help of her overbearing and math-minded boss Kakeru, she's finally able to do some real reporting. But Noriko soon discovers the mathematical functions behind all the stories she struggles to cover.

Using real-world examples like probability, supply and demand, polluting companies, and shochu density, Kakeru explains to Noriko:

  • Techniques of differentiation and integration
  • How to integrate and differentiate trigonometric and other complicated functions
  • Multivariate calculus and partial differentiation
  • Taylor expansions


Reluctant calculus students of all abilities will enjoy following along with Noriko as she learns calculus from Kakeru's quirky stories and examples. This charming and easy-to-read guide also includes an appendix with answers to the book's many useful exercises.

This EduManga book is a translation from a bestselling series in Japan, co-published with Ohmsha, Ltd. of Tokyo, Japan.
