The author of this imaginative self-teaching book tells an entertaining story about travels in the fictional land of Carmorra. In the process he introduces a series of problems and solves them by applying principles of calculus. Readers are introduced to derivatives, natural logarithms, exponential functions, differential equations, and much more. Skill-building exercises are presented at the end of every chapter.
