• Stepped-out solution videos with instruction are available at CalcView.com for selected exercises throughout the text. The selected textbook exercises will have a QR code next to the exercise number for easy access via a smart phone.

• More conceptual exercises have been added to help students better understand the concepts being taught in each section.

• The Section Projects have been carefully and extensively examined to ensure they are rigorous and relevant. The authors have added and revised a number of these projects.

• WEBASSIGN: CALCULUS OF A SINGLE VARIABLE, Eleventh Edition, is the powerful online homework and course management system that engages students in learning the math. WebAssign includes new end-of-chapter exercises, animated simulations, and pre-built assignments vetted by trusted subject matter experts along with robust course, section, assignment, and question settings and online testing to help instructors foster a deeper understanding of course concepts.

• The How Do You See It? exercise in each section presents a problem that students solve by visual inspection using the concepts learned in the lesson.

• Remarks - These hints and tips can be used to reinforce or expand upon concepts, help students learn how to study mathematics, caution them against common errors, address special cases, or show alternative or additional steps to a solution of an example.

• Exercise Sets - The exercise sets have been carefully and extensively examined to ensure they are rigorous, relevant, and cover all topics suggested by our users. Multi-step, real-life exercises reinforce problem-solving skills and mastery of concepts by giving students the opportunity to apply the concepts in real-life situations. Putnam Exam questions to push the limits of students’ understanding of calculus. Graphing technology exercises for students to make us of a graphing utility to help find solutions.

• Graded Homework Exercises - Online homework and tests are evaluated using powerful Maple software to ensure mathematical accuracy. Instructors control point values, weighting grades, and whether or not an item is graded. An electronic gradebook helps instructors manage course information easily and can be exported to other files, such as Excel.

• LarsonCalculus.com – The authors created a free website offering many valuable resources, including Proof Videos (watch co-author Bruce Edwards present theorems and explain their proofs); Calculus Videos (watch Dana Mosely explain concepts of calculus); Interactive Examples (explore examples using Wolfram’s free CDF player, plug-in required); Rotatable Graphs (view and rotate three-dimensional graphs using Wolfram’s free CDF player).
