Calculus: The Language of Change is the second edition of the materials formerly called Calculus Using Mathematica. The second edition is intended for students training for technical careers in areas from modern finance to engineering. The text provides core material in calculus, making full use of modern computing to accelerate learning of important topics. There are new drill exercises, and the book includes Maple V as well as Mathematica (Version 2.3) to give students basic proficiency in using either application. The author continues to emphasize thorough grounding in limits, derivatives, and integrals, especially in engineering applications. Materials include the core text, a softbound book of student projects, and a computer CD. The CD contains Mathematica 3.0 notebooks and Maple Version 4 worksheets that are fully integrated with the text. In addition, the CD contains some optional text topics and a background book explaining the theory behind calculus.
