Calculus – Ron Larson, Robert Hostetler – 9th Edition


or the ninth edition of , the authors analyzed the copious data they receive from their website, http: // The site offers free solutions to odd-numbered exercises in the text. The site currently has over 1 million hits per month. The authors analyzed these hits to see which exercise solutions were accessing most often. They revised and refined the exercise sets based on this . The result is the only calculus on the market that uses real data about its exercises to address needs.

The Calculus program has a long history of innovation in the calculus market. It has been widely praised by a generation of students and professors for its solid and effective pedagogy that addresses the needs of a broad range of teaching and styles and environments. Each title is just one component in a comprehensive calculus course program that carefully integrates and coordinates print, media, and products for successful teaching and .
