Single Variable Calculus with Early Transcendentals, 2nd Edition

by Dr. Paul Sisson and Dr. Tibor Szarvas

A comprehensive, mathematically rigorous exposition, Single Variable Calculus with Early Transcendentals blends precision and depth with a conversational tone to include the reader in developing the ideas and intuition of calculus. A consistent focus on historical context, theoretical discovery, and ample exercise sets provides insight into the many applications and inherent beauty of the subject.

This single variable calculus title offers over 6600 exercises to choose from. The extensive exercise sets progress in difficulty level to develop students' understanding of the content and include application-based practice opportunities and technology questions that underscore the role of modern tools in advanced computations. Each chapter concludes with two projects: one designed to expand students' conceptual understanding of calculus beyond the typical theories studied, and another that showcases a real-world application of calculus in action. Additionally, comprehensive review sections in the software summarize key concepts of each chapter and serve as a helpful guide during exam preparation.

Pair this title with Hawkes Learning's 3-step, mastery-based homework and testing software now with 43% more exercises. Built-in annotated solutions and step-by-step problem-solving tutorials provide immediate support for students, and a video walkthrough for each example helps to facilitate a genuine mastery of subject matter.
