This post is basically a place-holder for me. I came across a recommendation for Calculus without Tears. It looks like it might be a good resource for us. Tigger is looking forward to the Calculus chapter in Challenge Math and likes the idea that her dad never learned it. And this book is aimed at kids her age, with an approach that is related to physics. I like Maria’s reviews and she was positive about it. So this might be a good buy given that we are planning on using physics to do math in the fall.

A family from another blog I read seems to enjoy “Calculus By and For Young People”.
