Overview

SINGLE VARIABLE CALCULUS provides you with the strongest foundation for a STEM future. James Stewart’s Calculus series is the top-seller in the world because of its problem-solving focus, mathematical precision and accuracy, and outstanding examples and problem sets. Selected and mentored by Stewart, Daniel Clegg and Saleem Watson continue his legacy and their careful refinements retain Stewart’s clarity of exposition and make the 9th edition an even more usable learning tool. The accompanying WebAssign includes helpful learning support and new resources like Explore It interactive learning modules. Showing that Calculus is both practical and beautiful, the Stewart approach and WebAssign resources enhance understanding and build confidence for millions of students worldwide.

The late 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 was most recently Professor of Mathematics at McMaster University, and his research field was harmonic analysis. Stewart was the author of a best-selling calculus textbook series published by Cengage Learning, including CALCULUS, CALCULUS: EARLY TRANSCENDENTALS, and CALCULUS: CONCEPTS AND CONTEXTS, as well as a series of precalculus texts.

Daniel Clegg received his B.A. in Mathematics from California State University, Fullerton and his M.A. in Mathematics from UCLA. He is currently a professor of mathematics at Palomar College near San Diego, California, where he has taught for more than 20 years. Clegg co-authored BRIEF APPLIED CALCULUS with James Stewart and also assisted Stewart with various aspects of his calculus texts and ancillaries for almost 20 years.

Saleem Watson received his Bachelor of Science degree from Andrews University in Michigan. He did graduate studies at Dalhousie University and McMaster University, where he received his Ph.D. in 1978. He subsequently did research at the Mathematics Institute of the University of Warsaw in Poland. He also taught at The Pennsylvania State University. He is currently Professor of Mathematics at California State University, Long Beach. His research field is functional analysis. Watson is a co-author on Stewart's best-selling Calculus franchise.

  • NEW EXPLANATIONS AND EXAMPLES: Careful refinements throughout provide even greater clarity on key concepts such as computing volumes of revolution and setting up triple integrals.
  • NEW SUBHEADINGS: Additional subsections within chapters help instructors and students find key content more easily to make the text an even more helpful teaching and learning tool.
  • NEW WEBASSIGN RESOURCES: New digital resources in WebAssign include Explore It interactive learning modules, the MindTap reader for interactive and mobile ebook access, enhanced remediation support, and improved problem types.
  • NEW SCAFFOLDED EXERCISES: At the beginning of problem sets, new basic exercises reinforce key skills and build student confidence to prepare them for more rigorous exercises and conceptual understanding.
  • NEW EXPLANATIONS AND EXAMPLES: Careful refinements throughout provide even greater clarity on key concepts such as computing volumes of revolution and setting up triple integrals.
  • QUALITY EXERCISES: Each exercise set carefully progresses from skill-development problems to more challenging problems involving applications and proofs. Conceptual exercises encourage the development of communication skills by explicitly requesting descriptions, conjectures, and explanations. More challenging “Problems Plus” exercises reinforce concepts by requiring students to apply techniques from more than one chapter of the text, and by patiently showing them how to approach a challenging problem.
  • NEW SCAFFOLDED EXERCISES: At the beginning of problem sets, new basic exercises reinforce key skills and build student confidence to prepare them for more rigorous exercises and conceptual understanding.
  • CLEAR EXPOSITION: Dan Clegg and Saleem Watson have remained true to James Stewart's writing style speaking clearly and directly to students, guiding them through key ideas, theorems, and problem-solving steps, and encouraging them to think as they read and learn calculus.
  • NEW SUBHEADINGS: Additional subsections within chapters help instructors and students find key content more easily to make the text an even more helpful teaching and learning tool.
  • NEW WEBASSIGN RESOURCES: New digital resources in WebAssign include Explore It interactive learning modules, the MindTap reader for interactive and mobile ebook access, enhanced remediation support, and improved problem types.
  • PREREQUISITE SUPPORT: Four diagnostic tests in algebra, analytic geometry, functions, and trigonometry enable students to test their preexisting knowledge and brush up on skills. Quick Prep and Just-in-Time exercises in WebAssign refresh and reinforce prerequisite knowledge.
  • HELPFUL EXAMPLES: Every concept is supported by thoughtfully worked examples that encourage students to develop an analytic view of the subject. To provide further insight into mathematical concepts, many detailed examples display solutions graphically, analytically, and/or numerically. Margin notes expand on and clarify the steps of the solution.
  • STEM APPLICATIONS: Stewart/Clegg/Watson answers "When will I use this?" by showing how calculus is used as a problem-solving tool in fields such as physics, engineering, chemistry, biology, medicine, and the social sciences.
  • ENGAGING PROJECTS: A wealth of engaging projects reinforce concepts. "Writing Projects" ask students to compare present-day methods with those of the founders of calculus. "Discovery Projects" anticipate results to be discussed later. "Applied Projects" feature real-world use of mathematics. "Laboratory Projects" anticipate results to be discussed later or encourage discovery through pattern recognition.
  • PROBLEM-SOLVING EMPHASIS: George Polya’s problem-solving methodology is introduced at the beginning and reinforced throughout. "Strategies" sections help students select what techniques they'll need to solve problems in situations where the choice is not obvious and help them develop true problem-solving skills and intuition.
