Overview
Thomas' Calculus: Early Transcendentals helps you reach the necessary level of mathematical proficiency and maturity, but offers support to those who need it through its balance of clear and intuitive explanations, current applications and generalized concepts. In the 14th Edition, new coauthor Christopher Heil (Georgia Institute of Technology) partners with author Joel Hass to preserve what is best about Thomas' timetested text while reconsidering every word and every piece of art with students in mind. The result is a text that goes beyond memorizing formulas and routine procedures to help you generalize key concepts and develop deeper understanding.
