Multivariable Calculus : Concepts and Contexts - With CD (ISBN10: 0534410049; ISBN13: 9780534410049)
ISBN13: 978-0534410049
ISBN10: 0534410049

Summary: Stewart's MULTIVARIABLE CALCULUS: CONCEPTS AND CONTEXTS, Third Edition offers a streamlined approach to teaching calculus, focusing on major concepts and supporting those with precise definitions, patient explanations, and carefully graded problems. MULTIVARIABLE CALCULUS: CONCEPTS AND CONTEXTS is highly regarded because it has successfully brought peace to departments that were split between reform and traditional approaches to teaching calculus. Not only does the t
ext help reconcile the two schools of thought by skillfully merging the best of traditional calculus with the best of the reform movement, it does so with innovation and meticulous accuracy.

Benefits:
  • NEW! More than 25% of the problems in each chapter are new, with additional conceptual and technology exercises and three new projects. However, the number of pages in the text remains unchanged.
  • Differential equations occur immediately after applications of integration, and stress direction fields, numerical methods, and models of population growth.
  • Margin notes clarify and expand on topics presented in the main body of the text.
  • "Focus on Problem Solving" sections then occur at the end of every chapter to reinforce this essential skill. These sections include more challenging problems.
  • Laboratory Projects, Discovery Projects, Writing Papers, and Applied Projects appear throughout the book to reinforce concepts, provide group-learning experiences, and help students understand the relevance of what they are learning.
  • Each chapter ends with a comprehensive review that includes "Concept Check Questions," a true/false quiz, and exercises for every principle covered in that chapter.
  • NEW! The text contains hundreds of small improvements: new examples, additional steps in existing examples, updating of data in existing examples and exercises, new phrases and margin notes to clarify the exposition, references to other sources and web sites, redrawn art, and new references to the TEC CD (Tools for Enriching Calculus).
  • NEW! This text presents a more streamlined approach to calculus. For the convenience of instructors who wish to cover topics not in the book, the web site www.stewartcalculus.com contains additional topics and expanded coverage of some topics. These are available as PDFs. These topics include: Trigonometric Integrals, Trigonometric Substitution, Strategy for Integration, Volumes by Cylindrical Shells, Area of a Surface of Revolution, Linear Differential Equations, Strategy for Testing Series, Using Series to Solve Differential Equations, Second Order Differential Equations, Nonhomogeneous Linear Equations, Applications of Second Order Differential Equations.
  • NEW! The TOOLS FOR ENRICHING CALCULUS CD-ROM, included free in every new copy of the text, has been significantly enhanced for this edition and now includes modules for multivariable calculus. This powerful CD-ROM contains visualizations, interactive modules, and homework hints that significantly enrich students' learning experience.
  • NEW! iLrn Homework allows instructors to assign machine-gradable homework problems that help students identify where they need additional help. By entering a PIN code packaged with their textbook, students gain access to both iLrn and vMentor--live, one-on-one online help from an experienced calculus tutor. If assigned by the professor, this system provides necessary problem solving practice that is automatically graded and requires very little intervention from instructors.
  • NEW! The Interactive Video Skillbuilder CD-ROM, takes students step-by-step through examples from the book, reinforcing the problem-solving skills they need to learn.
  • NEW! Preloaded with content and available free via PIN code when packaged with this text, WebTutor ToolBox pairs all the content of this text's rich Book Companion Web Site with all the sophisticated course management functionality of a WebCT or Blackboard product. It's an ideal solution for online and distance learning needs.
  • NEW! A "V" symbol has been placed beside examples (an average of three per section) for which there are videos of instructors explaining the example in more detail. These videos are free to adopters.
  • Presents a streamlined approach to calculus for instructors who want to focus on concepts, but with a balanced presentation of theory.
