Description:

Stewart's SINGLE VARIABLE CALCULUS WITH VECTOR FUNCTIONS: CONCEPTS AND CONTEXTS offers a streamlined approach to teaching calculus, focusing on major concepts and supporting those with precise definitions, patient explanations, and carefully graded problems. SINGLE VARIABLE CALCULUS WITH VECTOR FUNCTIONS: CONCEPTS AND CONTEXTS successfully brought peace to departments that were split between reform and traditional approaches to teaching calculus. Not only does the text help reconcile the two schools of thought by skillfully merging the best of traditional calculus with the best of the reform movement, it does so with innovation and meticulous accuracy.
