__Calculus: Early Transcendental Functions__

Designed for the three semester engineering calculus course, Calculus Early Transcendental Functions, 4 e, continues to offer instructors and students innovative teaching and learning resources Two primary objectives guided the authors in the revision of this book to develop precise, readable materials for students that clearly define and demonstrate concepts and rulesDesigned for the three semester engineering calculus course, Calculus Early Transcendental Functions, 4 e, continues to offer instructors and students innovative teaching and learning resources Two primary objectives guided the authors in the revision of this book to develop precise, readable materials for students that clearly define and demonstrate concepts and rules of calculus and to design comprehensive teaching resources for instructors that employ proven pedagogical techniques and save time The Larson Hostetler Edwards Calculus program offers a solution to address the needs of any calculus course and any level of calculus student Every edition from the first to the fourth of Calculus Early Transcendental Functions, 4 e has made the mastery of traditional calculus skills a priority, while embracing the best features of new technology and, when appropriate, calculus reform ideas Now, the Fourth Edition is part of the first calculus program to offer algorithmic homework and testing created in Maple so that answers can be evaluated with complete mathematical accuracy.

Yep, that s right It s done Sort of I still have to take the final But for all practical purposes, after almost three years, it s done.

The lessons are very barren no explanations for the majority of concepts beyond what you are able to pick up from the examples Most of the time I find myself wondering what he s trying to get through to the hapless reader Definitely not a very complicated book, but that is because of its lack of rigor, and so is not a positive.

Completed this book in its entirety for Calculus I, II and III while completing my undergraduate degree Reviewing as necessary for grad school.

I was just excited to find my calc book on here

This text edition offers the best in pedagogy which I ve encountered Correspondingly this edition comes with CDs which interfaces MATLAB, Mathematica etc Excellent text

You pretty much can t go wrong with any of the Larson, Hostetler and Edwards Calculus books I took calculus for the first time in 2000, and I still use this book as a reference to this day.

This book is incredibly traditional in its approach to teach Calculus.
