For freshman/sophomore-level courses treating calculus of both one and several variables.While it covers all the material needed by students in engineering, science, and mathematics, this calculus text remains the shortest mainstream calculus book available-ideal for instructors who want a no-nonsense, concisely written text. The authors make effective use of computing technology, graphics, and applications. At least two technology projects are presented in each chapter. This popular book is accurate without being excessively rigorous and up-to-date without being faddish.
