Designed for the three-semester engineering calculus course, CALCULUS: EARLY TRANSCENDENTAL FUNCTIONS, Sixth Edition, continues to offer instructors and students innovative teaching and learning resources. The Larson team always has two main objectives for text revisions: 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/Edwards Calculus program offers a solution to address the needs of any calculus course and any level of calculus student. Every edition from the first to the sixth of CALCULUS: EARLY TRANSCENDENTAL FUNCTIONS has made the mastery of traditional calculus skills a priority, while embracing the best features of new technology and, when appropriate, calculus reform ideas.

Dr. Larson authors numerous textbooks including the best-selling Calculus series published by Cengage Learning.Review:
"The students who take the Calculus sequence are science and engineering majors rather than math majors, so the focus on the applied rather than the theoretical approach fits that model of student quite well."
"The book covers all topics included in the competencies of calculus 1, 2 and 3 in our institution. That was one of the reasons we adopted it. Even more, the topics associated with method of integration by substitution (sections 5.5-5.8) are better covered than any other book with plenty of examples and exercises, and this is crucial for the students to get a good foundation for calculus 2."
