Overview

The Larson 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 learning styles and environments. Each title is just one component in a comprehensive calculus course program that carefully integrates and coordinates print, media, and technology products for successful teaching and learning. For use in or out of the classroom, the companion website LarsonCalculus.com offers free access to multiple tools and resources to supplement students’ learning.

Ron Larson, The Pennsylvania State University, The Behrend College

Dr. Ron Larson is a professor of mathematics at The Pennsylvania State University, where he has taught since 1970. He received his Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Colorado and is considered the pioneer of using multimedia to enhance the learning of mathematics, having authored over 30 software titles since 1990. Dr. Larson conducts numerous seminars and in-service workshops for math educators around the country about using computer technology as an instructional tool and motivational aid. He is the recipient of the 2014 William Holmes McGuffey Longevity Award for CALCULUS: EARLY TRANSCENDENTAL FUNCTIONS, the 2014 Text and Academic Authors Association TEXTY Award for PRECALCULUS, the 2012 William Holmes McGuffey Longevity Award for CALCULUS: AN APPLIED APPROACH, and the 1996 Text and Academic Authors Association TEXTY Award for INTERACTIVE CALCULUS (a complete text on CD-ROM that was the first mainstream college textbook to be offered on the Internet). Dr. Larson authors numerous textbooks including the best-selling Calculus series published by Cengage Learning.

Bruce H. Edwards, University of Florida

Dr. Bruce H. Edwards is Professor of Mathematics at the University of Florida. Professor Edwards received his B.S. in Mathematics from Stanford University and his Ph.D. in Mathematics from Dartmouth College. He taught mathematics at a university near Bogotá, Colombia, as a Peace Corps volunteer. While teaching at the University of Florida, Professor Edwards has won many teaching awards, including Teacher of the Year in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Liberal Arts and Sciences Student Council Teacher of the Year, and the University of Florida Honors Program Teacher of the Year. He was selected by the Office of Alumni Affairs to be the Distinguished Alumni Professor for 1991–1993. Professor Edwards has taught a variety of mathematics courses at the University of Florida, from first-year calculus to graduate-level classes in algebra and numerical analysis. He has been a frequent speaker at research conferences and meetings of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. He has also coauthored a wide range of award winning mathematics textbooks with Professor Ron Larson.

WebAssign is a flexible and fully customizable online instructional solution that puts powerful tools in the hands of teachers, enabling you to realize your teaching goals and instantly assess individual student performance to help students learn math, not just do online homework.

  • LarsonCalculus.com: The authors created a free website hosting valuable resources. At this website, students can access the following: Proof Videos – Watch co-author Bruce Edwards present theorems and explain their proofs. Calculus Videos – Watch Dana Mosely explain concepts of calculus. Interactive Examples – Explore examples using Wolfram’s free CDF player (plug-in required). Rotatable Graphs – View and rotate three-dimensional graphs using Wolfram’s free CDF player (plug-in required).
  • HOW DO YOU SEE IT? Exercises: The How Do You See It? exercise in each section presents a problem that students will solve by visual inspection using the concepts learned in the lesson.
  • Remarks: These hints and tips can be used to reinforce or expand upon concepts, help students learn how to study mathematics, caution them about common errors, address special cases, or show alternative or additional steps to a solution of an example.
  • Exercise Sets: The exercise sets have been carefully and extensively reviewed to ensure they are rigorous, relevant, and thorough. Multi-step, real-life exercises reinforce problem-solving skills and mastery of concepts by letting you apply the concepts in real-life situations. Putnam Exam questions appear in selected sections to push the limits of students’ understanding of calculus. Graphing technology exercises for students to make us of a graphing utility to help find solutions.
  • Second Order Differential Equations: Available online, this chapter delves into second order differential equations. This will greatly help engineering and math majors.
