NOTE: This version of the authors’ calculus book was previously titled: “Calculus: Concepts & Calculations.” It is identical to the authors’ present title: Calculus, but has in addition the Maple code and Special-Purpose Maple procedures to produce the animations and figures that are an essential dynamic part of the book. While the Maple code in this book is unobtrusive and may be ignored when reading, some instructors and students may prefer not to have it. In this case, they should choose Calculus by Betounes and Redfern.

The book presents the essential calculus material using a traditional approach and organization of the canonical collection of concepts. The writing style is clear and concise, oriented toward students’ understanding, and augmented by numerous figures, drawings, animations (movies), and lecture videos.

A major feature of the book is the abundance of new examples and exercises, both traditional and computational, which can be blended into the calculus sequence according to the instructor’s preferences.

Features of the Book

  • Includes unique sections: An Alternative to Trig Substitutions, A New Class of Arc Length Problems, A New Class of Surface Area Problems, An Overlooked Class of Solids of Revolution, and A Simplified, Rigorous Approach to the Theorems of Stokes, Green, and Gauss.
  • Contains thoughtfully designed exercise sets, with exercises ranging from basic to hard, both computational and theoretical
  • Can be bundled with a detailed and elaborate electronic Solutions Manuals (SMs) for the odd-numbered exercises in Chapters 1–14. The SMs, written by the authors, contain all of the steps in the progression toward the answer and many comments on the underlying algebra (and calculus). NOTE: These SMs are titled Calculus Single Variable Solutions Manual and Calculus Multivariable Solutions Manual and may be purchased separately.
