* The wide-ranging debate brought about by the calculus reform movement has had a significant impact on calculus textbooks. In response to many of the questions and concerns surrounding this debate, the authors have written a modern calculus textbook, intended for students majoring in mathematics, physics, chemistry, engineering and related fields. The text is written for the average student -- one who does not already know the subject, whose background is somewhat weak in spots, and who requires a significant motivation to study calculus. The authors follow a relatively standard order of presentation, while integrating technology and thought-provoking exercises throughout the text. Some minor changes have been made in the order of topics to reflect shifts in the importance of certain applications in engineering and science. This text also gives an early introduction to logarithms, exponentials and the trigonometric functions. Wherever practical, concepts are developed from graphical, numerical, and algebraic perspectives (the "Rule of Three") to give students a full understanding of calculus. This text places a significant emphasis on problem solving and presents realistic applications, as well as open-ended problems. *

Download Calculus of Several Variables - Thomas P. DickThis text represents materials for the third semester of calculus, and is the product of one of several NSF-funded calculus curriculum projects, known also as the "Oregon State Calculus Connections" program. "Calculus of a Single Variable", published in 1994, represented the first two semesters' work in calculus from this same program. These materials were also used by thousands of high school and college students in a preliminary edition. Like other "reform" calculus |

Download Calculus & Student Solution Manual Package - Dale E. Varberg, Edwin J. Purcell, Steven E. Rigdon, VarbergFor 1st and 2nd year courses treating calculus of both one and several variables. While it covers all the material needed by students in engineering, science, and mathematics, this calculus text remains the shortest mainstream calculus book available - ideal for instructors who want a no-nonsense, concisely written text. The authors make effective use of computing technology, graphics, and applications. At least two technology projects are presented in each chapter. |

Download Calculus: Applications and Technology - Edmond C. TomastikBy always bringing graphical and numerical, as well as algebraic viewpoints each topic, this work presents a conceptual understanding of the calculus that is useful in accommodating diverse applications. |

Download The Calculus Lifesaver: All the Tools You Need to Excel at Calculus - Adrian BannerFor many students, calculus can be the most mystifying and frustrating course they will ever take. "The Calculus Lifesaver" provides students with the essential tools they need not only to learn calculus, but to excel at it. All of the material in this user-friendly study guide has been proven to get results. The book arose from Adrian Banner's popular calculus review course at Princeton University, which he developed especially for students who are motivated to earn |

Download Calculus: Early Transcendental Functions - Ron Larson, Robert P. Hostetler, Bruce H. EdwardsDesigned for the three-semester engineering calculus course, Calculus: Early Transcendental Functions, 4/e, continues to offer instructors and students innovative teaching and learning resources. Two primary objectives guided the authors in the revision of this book: to develop precise, readable materials for students that clearly define and demonstrate concepts and rules of calculus; and to design comprehensive teaching resources for instructors that employ proven |
