9780618606269: Calculus I: Early Transcendental Functions

Designed for the first semester of a three-semester engineering calculus course, Calculus I: Early Transcendental Functions, 4/e, continues to offer instructors and students innovative teaching and learning resources. Two primary objectives guided the authors in the revision of this book: to develop precise, readable materials for students that clearly define and demonstrate concepts and rules of calculus; and to design comprehensive teaching resources for instructors that employ proven pedagogical techniques and save time. The Larson/Hostetler/Edwards Calculus program offers a solution to address the needs of any calculus course and any level of calculus student. Calculus I: Early Transcendental Functions, 4/e, contains Chapters 1-6 of the full Calculus: Early Transcendental Functions, 4/e, text.Every edition from the first to the fourth of Calculus: Early Transcendental Functions, 4/e, has made the mastery of traditional calculus skills a priority, while embracing the best features of new technology and, when appropriate, calculus reform ideas. Now, the Fourth Edition is the first calculus program to offer algorithmic homework and testing created in Maple so that answers can be evaluated with complete mathematical accuracy.
