This book makes accessible to calculus students in high school, college and university a range of counter-examples to “conjectures” that many students erroneously make. In addition, it urges readers to construct their own examples by tinkering with the ones shown here in order to enrich the example spaces to which they have access, and to deepen their appreciation of conspectus and conditions applying to theorems.
