Often calculus and mechanics are taught as separate subjects. It shouldn't be like that. Learning calculus without mechanics is incredibly boring. Learning mechanics without calculus is missing the point. This textbook integrates both subjects and highlights the profound connections between them. This is the deal. Give me 350 pages of your attention, and I'll teach you everything you need to know about functions, limits, derivatives, integrals, vectors, forces, and accelerations. This book is the only math book you'll need for the first semester of undergraduate studies in science. With concise, jargon-free lessons on topics in math and physics, each section covers one concept at the level required for a first-year university course. Anyone can pick up this book and become proficient in calculus and mechanics, regardless of their mathematical background.

This book is for you only if you gamble to make money. If your idea of "fun" and "entertainment" includes giving away your hard-earned money to casinos, I can't help you. If you enjoy sitting in a mindless, bright lights/dinging trance while you drop quarters down a slot, this book is not for you. If you think casinos are built and run by stupid people, you better stay out of them. If you think you can beat a blackjack dealer by wild-assed guessing, think again. If you play poker just because it's now so popular . . . you don't need my book. If you believe you can just happen to be "lucky" enough to beat the odds, you live in a fantasy world and you'd hate this book for destroying your illusions. But if you're hard-headed, serious, willing to work, and tired of the mainstream gambling books that simply teach you how to lose less rather than win . . . If you understand casinos don't stay in business by giving out more money than they take in . . . This is an extensive examination of the most popular forms of gambling. If you can find any positive expectation bets, and how. Some of the material is controversial. Some of it is unique. It's not for beginners. If you don't already know how to play blackjack or craps, buy and read the basic books first. This one assumes you know and understand the rules of play. If you have emotional or psychological issues around money -- my strong advice is, don't gamble. If you want to believe casinos are playgrounds built for your amusement, this is not the book for you. I use statistical concepts and common sense to strip away the bright lights and glamor to reveal the mathematical realities of gambling. For the most part, it's not pretty. Not if you want to make money instead of lose it. But there are opportunities there for people willing to work hard and understand the obstacles so they can surmount them. If you're still an emotional child needing the adrenaline rush and excitement of "winning" money, this is not for you. And not only the casinos want to take your money -- hordes of online scammers selling bogus systems online also are after the money belonging to would-be pro gamblers. Until you can enter a casino and remain blind to the red carpeting, the flashing lights, dinging slots and the entire aura of glamorous partying -- you'll remain a loser. If you have enough money to pay for a mirage, that's up to you. Most people don't.

It can be difficult to recognize that in spite of the precision and power of mathematics, both the verbal and symbolic language it uses have the same qualities of ambiguity as every other human language. In The Role of Language in Teaching Children Math, Dr. Kastner reveals strategies to overcome the fact that traditional and current mathematics curricula, beginning in the early grades, fail to provide students with the conceptual understanding required to advance to levels where the delight of geometry and calculus become accessible. Kastner's clear prose and organic organization assists teachers, parents, and students to untangle abstract meanings required for mastery in the field of mathematics. ""As teachers of mathematics, it is critical that we continually foster meaningful mathematical conversations with children in order for them to develop a deep understanding of the math. Bernice's extraordinary, thought-provoking book is a primer on how the language we use to teach and talk about mathematics can either obscure or illuminate the profound beauty of mathematics. The Role of Language in Teaching Children Math should be read by any serious teacher of mathematics."" --Debby Halperin, Recipient of the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics Teaching 2014
