This book is designed for a three-semester or four-quarter calculus course covering single variable and multivariable calculus for mathematics, engineering, and science majors.
Drawing on their decades of teaching experience, William Briggs and Lyle Cochran have created a calculus text that carries the teacher’s voice beyond the classroom. That voice–evident in the narrative, the figures, and the questions interspersed in the narrative–is a master teacher leading students to deeper levels of understanding. The authors appeal to students’ geometric intuition to introduce fundamental concepts and lay the foundation for the more rigorous development that follows. Comprehensive exercise sets have received praise for their creativity, quality, and scope.
To further support student learning, the ebook for the text features Interactive Figures that can be manipulated to shed light on difficult-to-convey concepts. In addition, the Instructor’s Resource Guide and Test Bank features quizzes, test items, lecture support, guided projects, and more.
