Michael Sullivan and Kathleen Miranda have written a contemporary calculus textbook that instructors will respect and students can use. Consistent in its use of language and notation, Sullivan/Miranda’s Calculus offers clear and precise mathematics at an appropriate level of rigor. The authors help students learn calculus conceptually, while also emphasizing computational and problem-solving skills. The book contains a wide array of problems including engaging challenge problems and applied exercises that model the physical sciences, life sciences, economics, and other disciplines. Algebra-weak students will benefit from marginal annotations that help strengthen algebraic understanding, the many references to review material, and extensive practice exercises. Strong media offerings include interactive figures and online homework. Sullivan/Miranda’s Calculus has been built with today’s instructors and students in mind.
