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.

  • Examples are now titled for easier reference, and some new examples have been added. In some cases, solutions given have been amplified, and data has been thoroughly revised and reviewed to reflect current values.
  • Some material has been rewritten for greater clarity or for better motivation. See, for example, the introduction to maximum and minimum values on pages 262-263 and the introduction to series on page 565.
  • In response to user feedback, specific areas of content have been condensed, moved, or expanded upon, including: the material motivating the derivative is briefer and is now a single section called Derivatives and Rates of Change. Rates of Change in the Natural and Social Sciences has been moved later in Ch. 3, to incorporate more differentiation rules. Coverage of inverse trigonometric functions has been consolidated in a single section (3.6). The former sections 4.6 and 4.7 have been merged into one section, with a briefer treatment of optimization problems in business and economics. There is now a full section on volumes by cylindrical shells (6.3).
  • Four new diagnostic tests in the beginning of the book gauge students’ proficiency in Basic Algebra, Analytic Geometry, Functions, and Trigonometry. Answers are provided, and students who don't do well are referred to where they should seek help.
  • INSTRUCTOR RESOURCE GUIDE WITH SOLUTIONS. The instructor's resource guide contains an abundance of resources keyed to the textbook by chapter and section, including diagnostic tests, chapter summaries, teaching strategies, chapter tests and final exams, and more.
  • CONCEPTUAL EXERCISES. The most important way to foster conceptual understanding is through assigned problems. Stewart Concepts offers various types of problems, including explanations/mathematical writing problems, use of graphs and tables, Concept Checks, and True/False quizzes in the review sections.
  • GRADED HOMEWORK EXERCISES. Each exercise set is carefully graded, progressing from basic conceptual exercises and skill-development problems to more challenging problems involving applications and proofs.
  • REAL-WORLD DATA. Interesting real-world data gathered from a variety of contemporary sources introduces, motivates, and illustrates the concepts of calculus.
