- The easy-to-use
**Homework Math Palette**adapts its front page to the content of the problem, bringing forward the most appropriate buttons. This helps students focus on the math rather than the format. **Homework Warnings:**Our propriety grading algorithm conbines our homegrown parser and the computer algebra system, SymPy. It is programed to accept every valid equivalent answer and to trigger warnings for answers entered in an incorrect format.**Targeted Feedback**ensures the focus is on learning.**Detailed Solutions:**Setailed step-by-step solutions ensure students learn from a problem when they answer correctly or give up.**Guided Learn and Practice**assignments include interactive content, videos, and instructional feedback to prepare students before they come to class.- Guided Learn and Practice Assignments contain
**CalcClips**tutorial videos are integrated throughout the e-book. **Dynamic Figures**powered by Desmos, take students experience further with conceptual and computational questions about the interactive Dynamic Figures. These book-specific figures are embedded directly in the e-book and additional assessment for the figures are found in the Guided Learn and Practice question banks.**LearningCurve adaptive quizzing**offers individualized question sets and feedback for each student based on his or her correct and incorrect responses.

**General themes of the revision include the following (a detailed list of changes is also available):**

- Rewrite portions to increase readability without reducing level of mathematical rigor. This includes increasing clarity, improving organization, and building consistency.
- Add applications, particularly in life science and earth science to broaden the scientific fields represented in the book. In particular, there are a number of new examples and exercises in climate science, an area that is currently drawing a lot of interest in the scientific community.
- Add conceptual and graphical insights to assist student understanding in places where pitfalls and confusion often occurs.
- Add diversity to the Historical Perspectives and historical marginal pieces.
- Maintain threads throughout the book by previewing topics that come up later and revisiting topics that have been presented before.
- Expand the perspective on curve sketching--beyond just sketching a curve using calculus tools--to include analyzing given curves using calculus tools. (This is an addition of some elements of the “reform” perspective on calculus instruction.)
- “Tighten” the presentation of the mathematics in the text, improving rigor (without increasing the overall level of formality). This includes correcting previous errors and omissions.
