Overview

Stewart's CALCULUS, FOURTH EDITION reflects the same dedication to excellence that characterized the first three editions. It has been revised with dedication, precision, and patient care to further emphasize conceptual understanding.
A phenomenon of the Stewart success is the texts' use in such a wide variety of colleges and universities throughout the world. Just as he teaches to every student in his classes from the most unprepared to the most mathematically gifted, Stewart writes to a range of students - adding the explanations that make ideas come alive as well as the problems that challenge. Stewart's heuristic examples reveal calculus to students. His examples stand out because they are not just models for problem solving or a means of demonstrating techniques - they also encourage students to develop an analytic view of the subject.
