Stewart (McMaster University) continues to synthesize reform and traditional approaches to calculus instruction in this third edition of a text/CD-ROM emphasizing conceptual understanding through visual, numerical, and algebraic approaches. This third edition contains new examples, exercises, and margin notes, plus three new application projects. The accompanying CD-ROM has been redesigned, and now includes brief animations of figures in the text, as well as homework hints and further activities and exercises.

New edition of a text that synthesizes reform and traditional approaches to calculus instruction, with emphasis on conceptual understanding through visual, numerical, and algebraic approaches. It's more streamlined than the author's traditional texts, with some topics interwoven throughout the book instead of being treated separately and fewer theorem proofs, among other differences. The included CD-ROM is intended to enrich and enhance the text with modules that allow students to explore topics in a "laboratory" environment. Annotation c.
