Description

Calculus hasn’t changed, but your students have. Many of today’s students have seen calculus before at the high school level.  However, professors report nationwide that students come into their calculus courses with weak backgrounds in algebra and trigonometry, two areas of knowledge vital to the mastery of calculus. University Calculus: Alternate Edition responds to the needs of today’s students by developing their conceptual understanding while maintaining a rigor appropriate to the calculus course. 

The Alternate Edition is the perfect alternative for instructors who want the same quality and quantity of exercises as Thomas’ Calculus, Media Upgrade, Eleventh Edition but prefer a faster-paced presentation.

CourseSmart textbooks do not include any media or print supplements that come packaged with the bound book.
