Pearson Education; 13 edition (May 18; 2016)
This calculus textbook is intended for use in a program that spans three academic years or four quarters (math; engineering; and science majors). College students are introduced to the inherent beauty of calculus as well as the power that can be derived from its applications through the use of Thomas’ Calculus 13th Edition (SI Units). This textbook has been highly regarded for well over half a century because of the crystal clear and accurate explanations it provides, the thoughtfully chosen examples it provides, the superb figures it provides, and the time-tested exercise sets it provides. With this new version, the exercises have been improved, updated, and expanded; this has always been done with the intention of developing technical competence while also furthering college students’ appreciation for the subject. Both Weir and Hass, who are co-authors of the book, have made it a personal mission to update the content of the book so that it is more in line with the shifting priorities and expectations of today’s students. The textbook can be purchased together with an extensive online Pearson MyLab Mathematics (R) course that includes a homework helper, a tutorial, and a study guide. In addition to the interactive multimedia components that are provided, such as lecture videos and eBooks, there are about 9,000 algorithmic problems that students can use to gain the necessary amount of experience. The goal of the online homework, tutorial, and assessment package known as Pearson MyLab Mathematics is to make learning more individualized and to produce better overall results. Students are motivated to actively learn and remember challenging topics by providing them with a wide variety of exercises that are interactive, interesting, and can be assigned to them (sold separately).
