Ostebee and Zorn provide concrete strategies that help students understand and master concepts in calculus. This user-friendly text continues to help students interact with the main calculus objects (functions, derivatives, integrals, etc.) not only symbolically but also, where appropriate, graphically and numerically. Ostebee/Zorn strikes an appropriate balance among these points of view, without overemphasizing any of them. New exercises, examples, and much more have added tremendously to this great book.
NAVIGATING CALCULUS, a new CD-ROM, is being released along with the second edition. The CD contains a variety of useful tools, and resources, including a powerful graphing calculator utility, a glossary with examples, and many live activities that deepen students' encounters with calculus ideas. The CD is keyed closely to the book's table of contents.
Any treatment of calculus involves many choices among competing alternatives: how and when to treat limits, which applications to include, what to prove, etc. To explain the authors' views on such matters, they've established an FAQ site at: http://www.stolaf.edu/people/zorn/ozcalc/faq/.
