Origins, points of view
This book grew out of lecture notes written by one of us (CRC) during a sabbatical year in 1992-93. Subsequently, the lecture notes were the multivariable calculus text of the Department of Mathematics at the University of Washington Seattle, Wash., for several years. Thus, most of the book's material has been class-tested by different instructors over an extended period.
The book embodies distinct views on what should be taught in a standard multivariable/vector calculus courser and how it should be taught. The thrust of our views, as tempered by classroom experience and input from colleagues, may be summarized as follows.
Our views surface at times as novel features, with the result that the book is a traditional text with some nontraditional traits.
