This calculus reform text requires no special advanced training on an instructor's part and needs no supplementary manuals to use. The text's "calculus-as-a-foreign-language" approach, using immersion, reading, and writing, promotes mathematical literacy and comprehension. Highly accessible and diverse "conversations" allow the text to be customized for business, science, prehealth, humanities, social science, or mathematics majors, and for classes at any level.

*FEATURES:*

- Students are immersed in the language of calculus, beginning with basic syntax and vocabulary.
- Essential ideas, such as derivative, integral, the fundamental theorem, and Newton's quotient are introduced in the first few pages.
- The first part of the text focuses on building the vocabulary (ideas) of calculus.
- The second part of the text focuses on applying, exploring, and expanding on the vocabulary through "conversations," which may be used as group or individual projects.
- Differential equations are introduced early.
- The software programs Graph (grapher) and Slinky (differential equations solver) are available free of charge via the Web site.
