Thomas' Calculus text encourages new thought perspectives and deeper geometric understanding

This post is about the new edition of our best-selling Calculus textbook.

The text, symbols and graphics have been thoroughly revised to encourage students to consider the content from different perspectives for a deeper geometric understanding through

  • Updated graphics – for clear visualization and mathematical correctness
  • New examples and figures – to overcome conceptual obstacles
  • New homework exercises – for different perspectives and approaches to each topic
  • Short URLs in the margin notes – for navigation direct to online content
  • Annotations in each example – to guide through the problem solution and emphasize that each step in a mathematical argument is rigorously justified

Lecturers choose MyLab Math to build student success through everyday practice and learner feedback

Lecturers at Wake Technical Community College, North Carolina, chose MyLab Math to move students from simple ‘paper-pencil homework’ into formative assessments. They found:

  • Students who earned an A, B, or C in a MyLab Math-supported Calculus course outperformed D and F students by 19 percentage points in MyLab Math.
  • Overall, 69 percent of Calculus students earned an A, B, or C (national average is 63 percent).
  • Students wanted problems in MyLab Math homework assignments to model those in their tests, to help them to prepare better.
