This book combines traditional mainstream calculus with the most flexible approach to new ideas and calculator/computer technology. It contains superb problem sets and a fresh conceptual emphasis flavored by new technological possibilities. Chapter topics cover polar coordinates and parametric curves, infinite series; vectors and matrices, curves and surfaces in space, partial differentiation, multiple integrals, and vector calculus. For individuals interested in the study of calculus.
The sixth edition of this text/CD-ROM package offers more unified treatment of transcendental function and a new chapter on differential equations and applications, plus new material on power series solutions of differential equations. Learning features include some 600 new problems, most requiring the use of problem-solving technology, as well as discussion questions, worked examples, and historical and biographical chapter openings. The accompanying CD-ROM, new to this edition, contains animations and questions exploring what- if scenarios, homework hints with geometric animations, study questions, computer projects, Maple worksheets, and PowerPoint slides. Edwards is emeritus professor of mathematics at the University of Georgia. Penney is retired from the University of Georgia. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
