Calculus – Edwin Purcell, Dale Varberg – 8th Edition

Description

This the shortest mainstream available. The authors make effective use of computing technology, graphics, and applications, and provide at least two technology projects per chapter. This popular is correct without being excessively rigorous, up-to-date without being faddish. Maintains a strong geometric and conceptual focus.

Emphasizes explanation rather than detailed proofs. Presents definitions consistently throughout to maintain a clear conceptual framework. Provides hundreds of new , on approximations, functions defined by tables, and conceptual questions. Ideal for readers preparing for the AP Calculus exam or who want to brush up on their calculus with a no-nonsense, concisely written book.
