About

Overview

The Ellis/Gulick Calculus is an honest approach to calculus that does not burden the student with theory. The definitions and theorems are well-motivated and clearly stated, and supplemented with plenty of examples, exercises and applications, as well as some historical remarks and mini-projects.

Features and Benefits

  • Mathematically accurate, yet accessible and readable, with geometric motivation or interpretation where appropriate.
  • Emphasis on graphical and numerical aspects, as well as the analytical aspects of calculus.
  • The concepts presented in an honest but accessible manner, because students need to be able to grasp both the concepts and the applications.

13. Partial Derivatives.
14. Multiple Integrals.
15. Calculus of Vector Fields.
16. Appendices and Indexes.

What's New

  • More exercises requiring written responses, and more numerical examples and exercises are included; also the tables of integrals were eliminated. Each of these features is a result of the present-day teaching techniques, in which students are asked to contemplate the concepts more, and use technology where applicable.
  • A greater focus on the fundamental limits that give rise to derivatives was included in Chapter 2, Limits and Continuity.
  • A brief discussion of 2nd degree Taylor polynomials now accompanies coverage of the tangent-line approximation (within Chapter 3, Derivatives).
  • In the motivation of the notion of integral, (Chapter 5) the text not only uses area but also the problem of calculating distance from velocity. The integral is also defined by means of Riemann sums (rather than by lower and upper sums).
  • The chapter on applications of the integral (Chapter 6) now appears before the chapter on techniques of integration (Chapter 8). This change reflects the general availability of software packages such as Mathematica, MATLB, Maple, and Derive that perform symbolic integration.
  • In response to requests of many physicists, there is a brief introduction to complex numbers in a project within Chapter 10, Curves in the Plane.
  • As requested by previous uses of the text, a new section on parametrized surfaces (Sections 14.9 and 15.5) has been included in the several variable portion of the book.

Author Bio

Robert Ellis

Robert Ellis (M.E.S.M., University of California, Santa Barbara) has been teaching marine, earth, and environmental science courses in both the classroom and in the field since 2000. He currently serves as Assistant Professor in the Marine Science Department at Orange Coast College (OCC) in Southern California and Director of the OCC Public Aquarium. When not on campus, Professor Ellis often helps to develop and teach international field courses in marine science and management in various parts of the Caribbean, Central America, and the South Pacific. His graduate work focused on Marine Resource Management at UC Santa Barbara, and he has participated in and managed research projects and educational programs in many parts of the world. He hopes to have the good fortune to continue to travel and explore the world with his wife, Katie; son, Kalen; and daughter, Abigail.

Denny Gulick

Professor Denny Gulick received his undergraduate degree at Oberlin College, and his Ph.D. from Yale University. He has taught at the University of Maryland since 1965. His interests were formerly in abstract functional analysis, and more recently his interests turned to chaos and fractals. He is also involved in issues of mathematics education. In 2000 he received the Campus Kirwan Prize for Undergraduate Education.
