Description

Product Description

For 3- to 4-semester courses covering single-variable and multivariable calculus, taken by students of mathematics, engineering, natural sciences, or economics.


The most successful new calculus text in the last two decades

The much-anticipated 3rd Edition of Briggs’ Calculus Series retains its hallmark features while introducing important advances and refinements. Briggs, Cochran, Gillett, and Schulz build from a foundation of meticulously crafted exercise sets, then draw students into the narrative through writing that reflects the voice of the instructor. Examples are stepped out and thoughtfully annotated, and figures are designed to teach rather than simply supplement the narrative. The groundbreaking eBook contains approximately 700 Interactive Figures that can be manipulated to shed light on key concepts.


For the 3rd Edition, the authors synthesized feedback on the text and MyLab™ Math content from over 140 instructors and an Engineering Review Panel. This thorough and extensive review process, paired with the authors’ own teaching experiences, helped create a text that was designed for today’s calculus instructors and students.


Also available with MyLab Math

About the Author

William Briggs has been on the mathematics faculty at the University of Colorado at Denver for twenty-three years. He received his BA in mathematics from the University of Colorado and his MS and PhD in applied mathematics from Harvard University. He teaches undergraduate and graduate courses throughout the mathematics curriculum with a special interest in mathematical modeling and differential equations as it applies to problems in the biosciences. He has written a quantitative reasoning textbook, Using and Understanding Mathematics; an undergraduate problem solving book, Ants, Bikes, and Clocks; and two tutorial monographs, The Multigrid Tutorial and The DFT: An Owner’s Manual for the Discrete Fourier Transform. He is the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) Vice President for Education, a University of Colorado President’s Teaching Scholar, a recipient of the Outstanding Teacher Award of the Rocky Mountain Section of the Mathematical Association of America (MAA), and the recipient of a Fulbright Fellowship to Ireland.


Lyle Cochran is a professor of mathematics at Whitworth University in Spokane, Washington. He holds BS degrees in mathematics and mathematics education from Oregon State University and a MS and PhD in mathematics from Washington State University. He has taught a wide variety of undergraduate mathematics courses at Washington State University, Fresno Pacific University, and, since 1995, at Whitworth University. His expertise is in mathematical analysis, and he has a special interest in the integration of technology and mathematics education. He has written technology materials for leading calculus and linear algebra textbooks including the Instructor’s Mathematica Manual for Linear Algebra and Its Applications by David C. Lay and the Mathematica Technology Resource Manual for Thomas’ Calculus. He is a member of the MAA and a former chair of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Whitworth University.


Bernard Gillett is a Senior Instructor at the University of Colorado at Boulder; his primary focus is undergraduate education. He has taught a wide variety of mathematics courses over a twenty-year career, receiving five teaching awards in that time. Bernard authored a software package for algebra, trigonometry, and precalculus; the Student’s Guide and Solutions Manual and the Instructor’s Guide and Solutions Manual for Using and Understanding Mathematics by Briggs and Bennett; and the Instructor’s Resource Guide and Test Bank for Calculus and Calculus: Early Transcendentals by Briggs, Cochran, and Gillett. Bernard is also an avid rock climber and has published four climbing guides for the mountains in and surrounding Rocky Mountain National Park.


Eric Schulz has been teaching mathematics at Walla Walla Community College since 1989 and began his work with Mathematica in 1992. He has an undergraduate degree in mathematics from Seattle Pacific University and a graduate degree in mathematics from the University of Washington. Eric loves working with students and is passionate about their success. His interest in innovative and effective uses of technology in teaching mathematics has remained strong throughout his career. He is the developer of the Basic Math Assistant, Classroom Assistant, and Writing Assistant palettes that ship in Mathematica worldwide. He is an author on multiple textbooks: Calculus and Calculus: Early Transcendentals with Briggs, Cochran, Gillett, and Precalculus with Sachs, Briggs ― where he writes, codes,

Pearson''s money grabbing practices aside (opting for a new edition every year) this text is still a poor excuse for the subject matter presented. The examples do little to help with the complexities of the problems assigned. The writing itself is superfluous, to the point that it convolutes the concepts being presented.
This does little to compensate for the poor format of Pearson Online and the awful visual supplements provided.
Sadly I cannot recommend much alternatives (in print) to this book, though I have had some success with The Humongous Book of Calculus Problems and 5 Steps to a 5.
Also cannot recommend the Organic Chemistry Tutor on YouTube enough as a visual aid to the materials covered in this poor excuse of a textbook.

This book seems to have been written with the intent of making calculus look harder instead of easier, because most sections include problems that can only be solved using significant leaps of logic that go well beyond what was explained in the text. It is true that I usually could find explanations of how to solve those problems on the Internet, but as a textbook -- and an expensive one at that -- it should be sufficiently self-contained that you can figure out how to solve the problems using nothing more than the material presented and clearly explained in the text.

Even when the material is explained it often isn''t done well. I have one undergraduate and two graduate degrees in STEM majors and usually am pretty comfortable with and good at math, but this book sometimes left me baffled. For instance, the steps associated with examples 4 and 5 (on pages 99-100 in section 2.7: "Precise Definitions of Limits") are probably the worst "explanation" I''ve ever come across in any textbook on any subject. Instead of making clear how the problems (and others like them) can be solved, we''re presented with a confusing mishmash of assumptions.

I''ve no doubt that the book is technically accurate and that the authors know the subject well, but apparently explaining it to others isn''t their strong suit, and that''s exactly what a textbook is supposed to accomplish.

Buyer beware. I got scammed, but you can learn from my mistake. This textbook does NOT have a Mylab access code and you will have to pay an additional $70 to $100 dollars to get one. When I received the book without the code, I looked at the reviews and learned that if you go to the full product description and click on "see more" you will discovered that you will not get an access code. It is acceptable for a seller to sell textbooks without an access code, but they should be honorable and be up front about what they are selling. I recommend you buy your textbooks somewhere else

Great rental price
Reviewed in the United States on December 3, 2019
My school changed to this addition over the summer and I just needed this book for Calc 3, so I decided to rent it instead of buying a second edition. People are right this does not come with a Matlab code, which I didn''t need so this worked perfectly for me.

Didn''t know they came in pages without binding.
Reviewed in the United States on August 13, 2021
To be honest, I didn''t read much of the description so it probably stated there was no binding but I''m happy with my purchase anyway. I was able to nicely put into a binder and now is protected. Great condition!

Covered in used stickers
Reviewed in the United States on October 2, 2020
Bought used and came with the back covered in a bunch of used stickers but didn’t have any writing and was in super good shape so I won’t dock it too much for the stickers.
