Summary: A calculus text for engineering and science majors covering all the calculus core material, through vector integral calculus, plus some basic material in differential equations. Designed for either a one-year or a more leisurely paced three-semester sequence. Developed for the Engineering/ Physics focused course, this new text covers only material essential for these students. This lean text can be covered in two semesters, or in a traditional three-semester cour ...show morese. It doesn't "skimp" on mathematical techniques, as these are critical for further courses. Key features include early coverage of vectors, optional graphing calculator material, optional computer algebra systems projects, a modeling focus, and discussion of differential equations material throughout the text.

- Covers content necessary for Engineering/ Science majors in only two semesters (including vector integral calculus). Or, can be used in a more leisurely paced three-semester course.
- Early coverage of vectors provides the background necessary for the study of electricity, fluid dynamics, and magnetism.
- First order differential equations are covered in the first semester in conjunction with the Mean Value Theorem corollaries. Enables differential equations courses which follow calculus to begin at a higher level.
- Coverage meets ABET (American Board for Engineering and Technology) requirements.
- Graphing calculator use is optional.
- Includes optional Computer Algebra System and group modeling projects.
- Offers a strong mathematical modeling flavor.
- Does not compromise the mathematical coverage and rigor necessary for engineering and science majors.
