  • Differential Calculus for the Life Sciences

    Author(s): Leah Edelstein-Keshet, University of British Columbia

    Updated: May 10, 2019

    Description: Calculus arose as a tool for solving practical scientific problems through the centuries. However, it is often taught as a technical subject with rules and formulas (and occasionally theorems), devoid of its connection to applications. In this textbook, the applications form an important focal point, with emphasis on life sciences. This places the techniques and concepts into practical context, as well as motivating quantitative approaches to biology taught to undergraduates. While many of the ...[more]


  • Active Calculus - 2017 edition

    Author(s): Matthew Boelkins, David Austin, Steven Schlicker, Grand Valley State University

    Updated: May 10, 2019

    Description: Active Calculus (2017 edition) may be used as a stand-alone textbook for a standard first semester college calculus course or as a supplement to a more traditional text. Chapters 1–4 address the typical topics for differential calculus, while Chapters 5–8 provide the standard topics of integral calculus, including a chapter on differential equations (Chapter 7) and on infinite series (Chapter 8). In Active Calculus, we endeavor to actively engage students in learning the subject through an acti...[more]

  • Precalculus (Stitz-Zeager)

    Author(s): Carl Stitz, Jeff Zeager

    Updated: May 10, 2019

    Description: Precalculus is an introductory text. The material is presented at a level intended to prepare students for calculus while also giving them relevant mathematical skills that can be used in other classes. The authors describe their approach as "Functions First," believing introducing functions first will help students understand new concepts more completely. Each section includes homework exercises, and the answers to most computational questions are included in the text (discussion questions are...[more]
