n this version of his best-selling text, Stewart has reorganized the material so professors can teach transcendental functions (more than just trigonometric functions) early, before the definite integral. This variation introduces the derivative of the logarithmic and exponential functions at the same time as the polynomial functions and develops other transcendental functions prior to the introduction of the definite integral. In the Third Edition, Stewart retains the focus on problem solving, the meticulous accuracy, the patient explanations, and the carefully graded problems that have made this text work so well for a wide range of students. In the new edition, Stewart has increased his emphasis on technology and innovation and has expanded his focus on problem-solving and applications. On every page of his text, Stewart’s genuine understanding of both calculus and calculus students is apparent. A phenomenon of the Stewart success is the text’s use in such a wide variety of colleges and universities throughout the world. How does Stewart reach students at every level so effectively? Just as he teaches to every student in his classes from the most unprepared to the most mathematically gifted, Stewart write to this range of students–adding the explanations that make ideas come alive as well as the problems that challenge.
