Overview

Calculus teachers recognize Calculus as the leading resource among the "reform" projects that employ the rule of four and streamline the curriculum in order to deepen conceptual understanding. The fifth edition uses all strands of the "Rule of Four" - graphical, numeric, symbolic/algebraic, and verbal/applied presentations - to make concepts easier to understand. The book focuses on exploring fundamental ideas rather than comprehensive coverage of multiple similar cases that are not fundamentally unique. Readers will also gain access to WileyPLUS, an online tool that allows for extensive drills and practice. Calculus teachers will build on their understanding in the field and discover new ways to present concepts to their students.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Focusing on a limited number of topics in more depth than is perhaps customary in a calculus text, this volume emphasizes the meaning, in practical, graphical, and numerical terms, of the symbols used. Chapters cover functions, the derivative and the definite integral, short-cuts to differentiation, using the derivative, constructive antiderivatives, integration, using the definite integral, approximations and series, differential equations, functions of several variables, vectors, differentiating functions of many variables, optimization, integrating functions of many variables, parameterized curves, vector fields, line integrals, flux integrals, and calculus of vector fields. Includes short answers to odd-numbered problems at the back of the book. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
