Calculus: Single and Multivariable, 8th Edition teaches calculus in a way that promotes critical thinking to reveal solutions to mathematical problems while highlighting the practical value of mathematics. From the Calculus Consortium based at Harvard University, this leading text reinforces the conceptual understanding students require to reduce complicated problems to simple procedures. In this new edition, the authors retain their emphasis on the Rule of Four-viewing problems graphically, numerically, symbolically, and verbally-with a special focus on introducing different perspectives for students with different learning styles.
The ideal textbook for promoting active learning in a 'flipped' classroom, Calculus engages students across multiple majors by providing a variety of problems with applications from the physical sciences, economics, health, biology, engineering, and economics. Throughout the text, the Consortium brings calculus to life with current and relevant examples and numerous opportunities to master key mathematical concepts and skills. The eighth edition includes new graphing questions and visualizations powered by GeoGebra-enabling complex, multi-part questions that reinforce the Rule of Four and strengthen student comprehension.
