The book guides students through the core concepts of calculus and helps them understand how those concepts apply to their lives and the world around them. Due to the comprehensive nature of the material, we are offering the book in three volumes for flexibility and efficiency. Volume 1 covers functions, limits, derivatives, and integration.

How do you review a textbook when you may only cover 1/2 after 16 weeks? For starters, it is very much like any other calculus book except that it is reasonably priced. The book does well in highlighting important or notable math elements such as theorems or definitions. You do get a fair amount of example problems, but all of this is not so different than what you can get from other calculus books. Looking at Chapter 2, Limits are covered with the first sentence beginning, "Science fiction writers often imagine spaceships that can travel to far-off planets in distant galaxies." This can entice a student to read more but face it, all students prefer the notes of the professors and won't read the book.
The book does provide web links for interactive demonstrations. The downside is you need a Java browser plugin. Can we please keep Java to be nothing more than coffee.
It won't be until December that anyone or I can actually provide a truly accurate review of how well the book does. For the price, it is worth 5 stars. Until then, I'll have to utilize the Squeeze Theorem in Chapter 2.
