New to This Edition

**New author, Colin Adams**

Colin Adams is an award-winning teacher, widely read author, and distinguished researcher. A user of Jon Rogawski’s textbook, he brings his own classroom experience to the project, as well as a well-regarded ability to make calculus more engaging and meaningful to students without sacrificing its precision and rigor.

**The exercise sets were reviewed extensively by longtime users to ensure the utmost accuracy, clarity, and complete content coverage. Exercise sets were also modified to improve upon the grading by level of difficulty and to ensure even/odd pairing.**

Refined Exercises

Refined Exercises

In addition, numerous new exercises have been added throughout the text, particularly where new applications are available or to enhance conceptual development.

**, including**

New Examples

New Examples

Example 7 in Section 4.3 where the local minimum occurs at critical point but derivative does not exist

Example 5 in Section 6.1 that computes the areas between two curves in two ways

Several new examples in Chapter 10 including Example 1 (Fibonacci sequence) and Example 4 (bounded sequence) in Section 10.1 and Example 5 (repeated decimal expansion) in Section 10.2

Several examples in Chapter 14 including Example 7 (a limit that does not exist because different paths product different limits) in Section 14.2, Example 9 (gradient vectors perpendicular to level curves) in Section 14.5 and Example 5 (Second Derivative Tests fails) in Section 14.7

New Content Based on User and Reviewer Feedback

New Content Based on User and Reviewer Feedback

**Strategies of Integration**(new section in Ch. 7), incorporates many new examples to guide students on how to tackle integration problems

**Determining Which Convergence Test To Apply**(new in Ch. 10, sec. 5) reviews each test and provides strategies on when to apply them

Coverage of these concepts now focuses more on concepts and methods, rather than formulas and memorization:

Trigonometric integrals (Ch. 7)

Quadric surfaces (Ch. 12)

**This edition includes a number of new figures that help students visualize concepts, including illustrations that explain:**

New Illustrations

New Illustrations

What a limit means (Fig. 5 in Section 2.1, Fig. 3 in Section 2.2)

The Intermediate Value Theorem (Fig. 2 in Section 2.8)

Vertically and horizontally simple regions (Figs. 2 and 9 in Section 6.1)

**Standardized Notation**

Notational changes bring this edition in line with standard notation usage in mathematics and other fields that use mathematics, presenting a consistent message to students. Other notational changes make it easier for students to comprehend the concepts.

For example, in multivariable chapters, notation for vector-valued functions is now written r(t) = <x(t), y(t)> instead of c(t) = (x(t), y(t)) and the standard notation V is used for potential functions.

**LearningCurve**

In a game-like format, LearningCurve adaptive and formative quizzing provides an effective way to get students involved in the coursework. It offers:

**A unique learning path for each student**, with quizzes shaped by each individual’s correct and incorrect answers.**A Personalized Study Plan,**to guide students’ preparation for class and for exams.**Feedback for each question**with live links to relevant e-book pages, guiding students to the reading they need to do to improve their areas of weakness.

"The clarity of examples, as well as their interconnectedness, remains a strong point. This fact alone goes a long way toward helping students better learn the concepts."

--Erik Tou, instructor,Carthage College

“It strikes the right balance between readability for the student and rigor for the instructor.”

--Debra Carney, instructor,Colorado School of Mines"It is refreshing to see that even in the chapter on limits, there are application problems from a variety of disciplines, including engineering, physics and biology. The applications feel realistic and relevant as opposed to constructed and stilted."

--Maria Siopsis, instructor,Maryville College"The strenghts are in the Conceptual and Graphical Insights. These are the kinds of comments that can make things 'click' and fall into place for the students."

--Berit Givens, instructor,California State Polytechnic University, Pomona"The notation is a strong point of this book. It is used consistently and the authors do not shy away from using math instead of excess prose. Those two features alone put these chapters well ahead of my present text.""It's an invitation to learn calculus the right way."

--Jonathan Pearsall, instructor,College of Southern Nevada

--Nadjib Bouzar, instructor,University of Indianapolis
