This text is provided to you as an Open Educational Resource (OER) which you access online. It is designed to give you a comprehensive introduction to calculus with emphasis on applications in economics and the social sciences.  It contains both written and graphic text material, intra-text links to other internal material which may aid in understanding topics and concepts, intra-text links to the appendices and glossary for tables and definitions of words, and extra-text links to videos and web material that clarifies and augments topics and concepts.

Chapters and sections were adapted from the the following OER textbooks. Without these foundational texts, a lot more work would have been required to complete this project. Thank you to those authors who shared their work before us.
