This is the most successful calculus textbook in the world. The proof of this success is the text's use in such a wide variety of colleges and universities. The new edition of this best-selling text has been carefully and thoroughly revised by enhancing the features that make it such a powerful teaching and learning tool for calculus: integrity, meticulous accuracy, precision, a clear exposition and patient explanations, character, and attention to detail. It continues to embrace the best aspects of reform (many were incorporated in the previous edition) by combining the traditional theoretical aspects of calculus with creative teaching and learning techniques. This is accomplished by a focus on conceptual understanding, the use of real world data and real-life applications, projects, and the use of technology (where appropriate).
Everyone agrees that the main goal of calculus instruction is for the student to understand the basic ideas. The goal of this book is to support this while motivating students through the use real-world applications, building the essential mathematical reasoning skills, and helping them develop an appreciation and enthusiasm for calculus.
