Michael Sullivan and Kathleen Miranda have written a contemporary calculus textbook that instructors will respect and students can use. Consistent in its use of language and notation, Sullivan/Miranda’s Calculus offers clear and precise mathematics at a level of precision and rigor appropriate for a course in calculus. The authors help students learn calculus conceptually, while also emphasizing computational and problem-solving skills with a wide array of problems including engaging challenge problems and applied exercises that model the physical sciences, life sciences, economics, and other disciplines. Algebra-weak students will benefit from marginal annotations that help strengthen algebraic understanding, the many references to review material, and extensive practice exercises. The second edition features a robust media plan and key revisions and updates throughout, but maintains the pedagogical features and general student focus of the first edition.

“The book that is not only going to teach you calculus but will make you want to learn calculus.”
