Summary

Unlike traditional calculus texts that emphasize only an algebraic (symbolic) approach to learning the concepts, Ostebee/Zorn balances the symbolic approach with numerical and graphical ones. These three viewpoints give students a richer understanding of the fundamental concepts. Because important theorems and proofs are included, this text is appropriate for math and physical science majors. Technology (graphing calculators or computers) has a supporting role as an exploratory tool, rather than as an end in itself. Among the text's other distinctive features are the unusual variety of exercises, many which are graphical in nature; the informal, reader-friendly exposition; the attention to careful definitions and theorem statements; and the seamless integration of text and graphics in the exposition.
