This flexible series offers instructors a true balance of traditional and conceptual approaches to calculus for math, science, and engineering majors. The Second Edition continues to focus on conceptual understanding as its primary goal and combines a variety of approaches and viewpoints to help students achieve this understanding. In addition to providing a readable tone that appeals to students and supports independent work, the authors present a balance of traditional theorems and proofs along with conceptually driven examples and exercises featuring graphical, numerical, and symbolic points of view. In addition, the text offers a wealth of diverse, well-graded exercises, including some more challenging problems.
