Calculus: Concepts and Contexts, Single Variable / Edition 1by Columba Stewart, James Stewart, Stewart
Pub. Date: 05/28/1997
Stewart's remarkable new calculus text signals the meeting of two schools of thought at one historic junction. Calculus: Concepts and Contexts, Single Variable maintains mathematical integrity as it skillfully merges the best of traditional calculus with the best of the reform movement. Written from the ground up, this all-new text takes students beyond memorization and helps them to develop mathematical thinking skills.
In Calculus: Concepts and Contexts, Single Variable, this well-respected author emphasizes conceptual understanding--motivating students with real world applications and stressing the Rule of Four in numerical, visual, algebraic, and verbal interpretations. All concepts are presented in the classic Stewart style: with simplicity, character, and attention to detail. In addition to his clear exposition, Stewart also creates well thought-out problems and exercises. The definitions are precise and the problems create an ideal balance between conceptual understanding and algebraic skills.
