Calculus: The Language of Change

Front Cover
Jones & Bartlett Learning, 2005 - 988 pages
Calculus: The Language of Change is an innovative new introductory text that blends traditional and reform approaches, and focuses on understanding calculus as its own language. With accessible writing and presentation, the text allows students to gradually understand the language - first by reviewing vocabulary, and then by quickly moving to present calculus conceptually, computationally, and theoretically. Within this framework, derivatives and integrals are developed side by side, coverage of theory is offered at various levels, and computing devices are incorporated generically. A full range of student and instructor resources make Calculus: The Language of Change an outstanding course package.
