The Calculus of Friendship is the story of an extraordinary connection between a teacher and a student, as chronicled through more than thirty years of letters between them. What makes their relationship unique is that it is based almost entirely on a shared love of calculus. For them, calculus is more than a branch of mathematics; it is a game they love playing together, a constant when all else is in flux. The teacher goes from the prime of his career to retirement, competes in whitewater kayaking at the international level, and loses a son. The student matures from high school math whiz to Ivy League professor, suffers the sudden death of a parent, and blunders into a marriage destined to fail. Yet through it all they take refuge in the haven of calculus--until a day comes when calculus is no longer enough. Like calculus itself, The Calculus of Friendship is an exploration of change. It's about the transformation that takes place in a student's heart, as he and his teacher reverse roles, as they age, as they are buffeted by life itself. Written by a renowned teacher and communicator of mathematics, The Calculus of Friendship is warm, intimate, and deeply moving. The most inspiring ideas of calculus, differential equations, and chaos theory are explained through metaphors, images, and anecdotes in a way that all readers will find beautiful, and even poignant. Math enthusiasts, from high school students to professionals, will delight in the offbeat problems and lucid explanations in the letters. For anyone whose life has been changed by a mentor, The Calculus of Friendship will be an unforgettable journey.

Written for mathematics, science, and engineering majors who have completed the traditional two-term course in single variable calculus, Multivariable Calculus bridges the gap between mathematical concepts and their real-world applications outside of mathematics. The ideas of multivariable calculus are presented in a context that is informed by their non-mathematical applications. It incorporates collaborative learning strategies and the sophisticated use of technology, which asks students to become active participants in the development of their own understanding of mathematical ideas. This teaching and learning strategy urges students to communicate mathematically, both orally and in writing. With extended examples and exercises and a student-friendly accessible writing style, Multivariable Calculus is an exciting and engaging journey into mathematics relevant to students everyday lives.

Features an introduction to advanced calculus and highlights itsinherent concepts from linear algebra Advanced Calculus reflects the unifying role of linearalgebra in an effort to smooth readers' transition to advancedmathematics. The book fosters the development of completetheorem-proving skills through abundant exercises while alsopromoting a sound approach to the study. The traditional theoremsof elementary differential and integral calculus are rigorouslyestablished, presenting the foundations of calculus in a way thatreorients thinking toward modern analysis. Following an introduction dedicated to writing proofs, the bookis divided into three parts: Part One explores foundational one-variable calculus topics fromthe viewpoint of linear spaces, norms, completeness, and linearfunctionals. Part Two covers Fourier series and Stieltjes integration, whichare advanced one-variable topics. Part Three is dedicated to multivariable advanced calculus,including inverse and implicit function theorems and Jacobiantheorems for multiple integrals. Numerous exercises guide readers through the creation of theirown proofs, and they also put newly learned methods into practice.In addition, a "Test Yourself" section at the end of each chapterconsists of short questions that reinforce the understanding ofbasic concepts and theorems. The answers to these questions andother selected exercises can be found at the end of the book alongwith an appendix that outlines key terms and symbols from settheory. Guiding readers from the study of the topology of the real lineto the beginning theorems and concepts of graduate analysis,Advanced Calculus is an ideal text for courses in advancedcalculus and introductory analysis at the upper-undergraduate andbeginning-graduate levels. It also serves as a valuable referencefor engineers, scientists, and mathematicians.

Designed for the one- to two-semester Business/Applied Calculus course that commonly requires the use of graphing utilities and spreadsheets, Calculus Concepts takes an applications-based approach that involves modeling, the use and interpretation of real-world data, and the use of technology. The text helps build bridges between the mathematics of calculus and the real-world concepts students will face in their future careers. Students use real data and graphing technology to build their own models and interpret results. Concept Objectives present each chapter s goals in a chapter-opening list, divided into concepts and skills. Concept Inventories at the end of each section summarize the key concepts and skills developed within that section. Concept Checklists at the end of each chapter summarize the main concepts and skills taught in the chapter. Concept Review/Chapter Tests at the end of each chapter provide more practice with techniques and concepts. Answers to these tests are included in the answer key at the back of the text. Technology Guides for Excel and Graphing Calculators show students how to solve certain examples in the text using their particular technology. The manuals include instructions for the TI-83, TI-86, and TI-89 calculators as well as for Excel. Sections of the manuals are referenced in the text by a technology icon.
