Details: Product Description For the 7th Edition of CALCULUS: EARLY TRANSCENDENTAL FUNCTIONS, the companion website LarsonCalculus.com offers free access to multiple tools and resources to supplement your learning. Stepped-out solution videos with instruction are available at CalcView.com for selected exercises throughout the text. The website CalcChat.com presents free solutions to odd-numbered exercises in the text. The site currently has over 1 million hits per month, so the authors analyzed these hits to see which exercise solutions you were accessing most often. They revised and refined the exercise sets based on this analysis. Review "The students who take the Calculus sequence are science and engineering majors rather than math majors, so the focus on the applied rather than the theoretical approach fits that model of student quite well." "The book covers all topics included in the competencies of calculus 1, 2 and 3 in our institution. That was one of the reasons we adopted it. Even more, the topics associated with method of integration by substitution (sections 5.5-5.8) are better covered than any other book with plenty of examples and exercises, and this is crucial for the students to get a good foundation for calculus 2."
