This innovative text, a product of an NSF funded calculus consortium based at Harvard University, was developed as part of the calculus reform movement. Functions are presented graphically, numerically and algebraically to give students the benefit of alternate interpretations. The text is problem driven and features exceptional exercises based on real-world applications. Technology is used as a tool to help readers learn to think. The Draft Version of this book was class tested at over 100 schools.
A text for a one-semester course for students who have mastered a course in single variable calculus.
