Many calculus textbooks look to engage students with margin notes, anecdotes, and other devices.  But many instructors find these distracting, preferring to captivate their science and engineering students with the beauty of the calculus itself. Taalman and Kohn’s refreshing new textbook is designed to help instructors do just that.

Taalman and Kohn’s Calculus offers a streamlined, structured exposition of calculus that combines the clarity of classic textbooks with a modern perspective on concepts, skills, applications, and theory. Its sleek, uncluttered design eliminates sidebars, historical biographies, and asides to keep students focused on what’s most important—the foundational concepts of calculus that are so important to their future academic and professional careers.

Review:

"Taalman/Kohn is compact, accurate, precise, and mathematically both sound and elegant." - Michael Berg, Loyola Marymount University, USA "The writing is mathematically correct, linguistically correct, and conceptually clear." - Stavros Belbas, University of Alabama, USA "The categorized exercise sections make it very easy to choose assignments to do just what you want them to do." - Dan Rinne, California State University, San Bernardino, USA "The writing is very measured, very precise, and was (to me) a joy to read. There was a strong emphasis on understanding, which I like, and plenty of time was taken in examples and exercises to enable students to develop the relevant skills." - Antony Ware, University of Calgary, Canada "The authors set out to write a 'better kind of a calculus text', and I feel that they have achieved exactly that!" - Kanishka Perera, Florida Institute of Technology, USA "The authors have successfully written an easy-to-use, comprehensive text with excellent exposition." - Leonard Chastkofsky, University of Georgia, USA
