Ostebee and Zorn's approach applies reform principles to a rigorous calculus text. Conceptual understanding is the main goal of the text, and looking at mathematics from many representations (graphical, symbolic, numerical) is the main strategy for achieving this type of understanding. The key strengths of the text include combining symbolic manipulation with graphical and numerical representation, exercises of a varied nature and difficulty, and explanations written to be understandable to student readers.
