Thomas' Calculus

Calculus hasn't changed, but your students have. Many of today's students have seen calculus before at the high school level.  However, professors report nationwide that students come into their calculus courses with weak backgrounds in algebra and trigonometry, two areas of knowledge vital to the mastery of calculus. Thomas' Calculus responds to the needs of today's students by developing their conceptual understanding while maintaining a rigor appropriate to the calculus course.
