Stewart's CALCULUS: CONCEPTS AND CONTEXTS, FOURTH EDITION offers a streamlined approach to teaching calculus, focusing on major concepts and supporting those with precise definitions, patient explanations, and carefully graded problems. CALCULUS: CONCEPTS AND CONTEXTS is highly regarded because this text offers a balance of theory and conceptual work to satisfy more progressive programs as well as those who are more comfortable teaching in a more traditional fashion. Each title is just one component in a comprehensive calculus course program that carefully integrates and coordinates print, media, and technology products for successful teaching and learning.

This is an excellent textbook. I think it's the best math book I've ever studied from. Concepts are explained clearly, there are lots of examples and lots of practice problems. Read full review

User Review  - Ohud - Goodreads

If you love Math. you will enjoy reading this book. It won't be challenging especially if you have a good teacher. I read it for my calculus class and solve almost every single problem listed! However, I am not sure if I read this edition or a new one. Read full review
