Publisher Comments:

Stewart's CALCULUS: CONCEPTS AND CONTEXTS, 3rd Edition focuses on major concepts and supports them with precise definitions, patient explanations, and carefully graded problems. Margin notes clarify and expand on topics presented in the body of the text. The Tools for Enriching Calculus CD-ROM contains visualizations, interactive modules, and homework hints that enrich your learning experience. iLrn Homework helps you identify where you need additional help, and Personal Tutor with SMARTHINKING gives you live, one-on-one online help from an experienced calculus tutor. In addition, the Interactive Video Skillbuilder CD-ROM takes you step-by-step through examples from the book. The new Enhanced Review Edition includes new practice tests with solutions, to give you additional help with mastering the concepts needed to succeed in the course.

About the Author

James Stewart received his M.S. from Stanford University and his Ph.D. from the University of Toronto. He did research at the University of London and was influenced by the famous mathematician George Polya at Stanford University. Stewart is currently Professor of Mathematics at McMaster University, and his research field is harmonic analysis. Stewart is the author of a best-selling calculus textbook series published by Cengage Learning?Brooks/Cole, including CALCULUS, CALCULUS: EARLY TRANSCENDENTALS, and CALCULUS: CONCEPTS AND CONTEXTS, as well as a series of precalculus texts.
