Summary

This text represents materials for the third semester of calculus, and is the product of one of several NSF-funded calculus curriculum projects, known also as the ''Oregon State Calculus Connections'' program. Calculus of a Single Variable, published in 1994, represented the first two semesters' work in calculus from this same program. These materials were also used by thousands of high school and college students in a preliminary edition. Like other ''reform'' calculus texts, this book assumes that the student has access to graphing calculators or computers, but it is not tied to any particular technology. The text also employs the ''rule of three'' (a watchword among reform-minded calculus instructors): functions are represented (1) algebraically (or symbolically; e.g., as an equation, like x = y+2 ); (2) numerically (e.g., as tables of values); and (3) graphically (e.g., as graphs Plines or figures plotted on axes).
