An openly licensed applied calculus textbook, covering derivatives, integrals, and an intro to multivariable calculus. This book is heavily remixed from Dale Hoffman's Contemporary Calculus textbook, and retains the same conceptual focus from that text.
About this book:
- Chapter 1 Review contains review material that you should recall before we begin calculus.
- Chapter 2 The Derivative builds on the precalculus idea of the slope of a line to let us find and use rates of change in many situations.
- Chapter 3 The Integral builds on the precalculus idea of the area of a rectangle to let us find accumulated change in more complicated and interesting settings.
- Chapter 4 Functions of Two Variables extends the calculus ideas of chapter 2 to functions of more than one variable.
