Overview

Michael Sullivan and Kathleen Miranda have written a contemporary calculus textbook that instructors will respect and students can use. Consistent in its use of language and notation, Sullivan/Miranda’s Calculus offers clear and precise mathematics at an appropriate level of rigor. The authors help students learn calculus conceptually, while also emphasizing computational and problem-solving skills. The book contains a wide array of problems including engaging challenge problems and applied exercises that model the physical sciences, life sciences, economics, and other disciplines. Algebra-weak students will benefit from marginal annotations that help strengthen algebraic understanding, the many references to review material, and extensive practice exercises.
