Testimonials for AP Calculus Interactive Lectures Vol.1
Clearly explained lessons! I have been a math tutor for 23years. This book is a great learning tool for me and my students. The slides are easy to understand. Each tap brings out the next line or equation, so you can absorb the information one line or equation at a time. Ms. Korsunky's use of color, highlighting and boxing of important points make this a very clear presentation. Each section of text includes well worked examples.”

Most helpful, easytounderstand, and fun calculus book out there! This book is neatly and clearly organized, with plenty of colorful and cute cartoons/animations that make math a lot more fun than expected.
