Book Description :
Written for mathematics, science, and engineering majors who have completed the traditional two-term course in single variable calculus, Multivariable Calculus bridges the gap between mathematical concepts and their real-world applications outside of mathematics. The ideas of multivariable calculus are presented in a context that is informed by their non-mathematical applications. It incorporates collaborative learning strategies and the sophisticated use of technology, which asks students to become active participants in the development of their own understanding of mathematical ideas. This teaching and learning strategy urges students to communicate mathematically, both orally and in writing. With extended examples and exercises and a student-friendly accessible writing style, Multivariable Calculus is an exciting and engaging journey into mathematics relevant to students everyday lives.
