Steppedout 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.

LarsonCalculus.com: The authors created a free website hosting valuable resources. At this website, students can access the following: Proof Videos – Watch coauthor 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 (plugin required). Rotatable Graphs – View and rotate threedimensional graphs using Wolfram’s free CDF player (plugin required).

HOW DO YOU SEE IT? Exercises: The How Do You See It? exercise in each section presents a problem that students will 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 about 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 reviewed to ensure they are rigorous, relevant, and thorough. Multistep, reallife exercises reinforce problemsolving skills and mastery of concepts by letting you apply the concepts in reallife situations. Putnam Exam questions appear in selected sections 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.

Second Order Differential Equations: Available online, this chapter delves into second order differential equations. This will greatly help engineering and math majors.

WebAssign Course: The Larson WebAssign course has over 3,900 textbook questions drawn from the book, that offer more coverage of problems and topics than most online homework programs for Calculus. The WebAssign course for Larson CALCULUS will present numerous sectionlevel video lessons by Dana Mosely and animated tutorials. In addition to these assets, the course includes exerciselevel features: Read It, Watch It, Master It, and Talk to a Tutor links. These tools benefit students with varied learning styles to ensure they get the most out of their online learning experience.

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.
