Description for

This book serves as a textbook for an undergraduate calculus course. It is written for readers with some previous exposure to the techniques of calculus who would like to see the subject in a conceptual framework. The book combines a review of methods of single-variable calculus with a mathematically rigorous development of their justification. No previous experience with mathematical proof is assumed: rhetorical strategies and techniques of proof are introduced by example along the way. Between the text and the exercises, proofs are available for all the basic results of calculus for functions of one real variable. Exercises include Practice ... Read more

The introduction of a calculus sequence to the high schools has necessitated the development of a course in college math programs to deal with the students that have taken the high school sequence when they arrive on campus. While some of the students coming out of the high school programs are mathematically very capable, many are weak and are not ... Read more
