You Already Know Calculus

for inventors and other curious folk
(zeroeth draft--2011)

In which I demonstrate with easy arithmetic that calculus should be easy but is taught to be hard.

Unfinished labor of unrequited love, available now for an infinitesimally small price. If you don't think this is the best easy calculus book you've ever read, just return the electronic file for a full refund of the whole cost!

…if I had to design a mechanism for the express purpose of destroying a child’s natural curiosity and love of pattern-making, I couldn’t possibly do as good a job as is currently being done -- I simply wouldn’t have the imagination to come up with the kind of senseless, soul-crushing ideas that constitute contemporary mathematics education.
