Description

Excerpt from The Differential and Integral Calculus: Containing Differentiation, Integration, Development, Series, Differential Equations, Differences, Summation, Equations of Differences, Calculus of Variations, Definite Integrals Tue Differential and Integral Calculus, or, as it was formerly called in this country, the Doctrine of Fluxions, has always been supposed to pre sent remarkable obstacles to the beginner. It is matter of common oh servation, that any one who commences this study, even with the best ele mentary works, finds himself in the dark as to the real meaning of the processes which he learns, until, at a certain stage of his progress, depending upon his capacity, some accidental'combination of his, own ideas throws light upon the subject. The reason of this may be, that it is usual to ih troduce him at the same time to new principles, processes, and symbols, thus preventing his attention from being exclusively directed to one new thing at a time. It is our belief that this should be avoided; and we prepose, therefore, to try the experiment, whether by undertaking the solution of some problems by common algebraical methods, without call ing for the reception of more than one new symbol at once, or lessening the immediate evidence of each investigation by reference to general rules, the study of. More methodical treatises may not be somewhat facilitated. We would not, nevertheless, that the student should imagine we can re move all obstacles we must introduce notions, the consideration of which has not hitherto occupied his mind; and shall therefore consider our object as gained, if we can succeed in so placing the subject before him, that two independent difficulties shall never occupy his mind at once.
