Overview

For courses in Calculus.

 

Covers the most recent AP exam guidelines, including the new Mathematical Practices for AP Calculus

In Calculus: AP Edition, 2nd Edition, well-known authors Briggs and Cochran apply their proven approach to the most recent changes in the AP Exam guidelines, including the new Mathematical Practices for AP Calculus (MPACs). The writing maintains just the right balance of mathematical formality and conversational tone, keeping students’ attention and making college-level calculus something that they truly can grasp. Examples are stepped-out in detail and thoughtfully annotated to encourage independent learning. Figures are a step above other texts in both quality and scope, building a foundation of geometric intuition that leads to true understanding of the key concepts. Exercises feature remarkable breadth and variety, providing ample opportunities for students to practice the MPACs.
