Presenting mathematics as forming a natural bridge between the humanities and the sciences, this book makes calculus accessible to those in the liberal arts. Much of the necessary geometry and algebra are exposed through historical development, and a section on the development of calculus offers insights into the place of mathematics in the history of thought.Since an ellipse is the only bounded conic section and since the path of a planet or a (returning) comet is bounded, such paths must be elliptical. ... The study of second-degree algebraic equations is, in essence, the study of Conic Sections!
