The Calculus Consortium’s focus on the “Rule of Four” (viewing problems graphically, numerically, symbolically, and verbally) has become an integral part of teaching calculus in a way that promotes critical thinking to reveal solutions to mathematical problems. Their approach reinforces the conceptual understanding necessary to reduce complicated problems to simple procedures without losing sight of the practical value of mathematics. In this edition of Calculus, the authors continue their focus on introducing different perspectives for students with an increased emphasis on active learning in a ‘flipped’ classroom.

The world has evolved, and the Consortium has too; the authors continue their focus on introducing different perspectives for students with an increased emphasis on providing tools for a variety of classroom formats. Algorithmic auto-graded homework questions, videos, active learning worksheets, and many viewable student metrics provide a comprehensive, data-driven approach to engage students. New graphing questions and visual aids powered by GeoGebra allow for complex, multi-part question types that reinforce the Rule of Four to enhance conceptual understanding and visualization.

The 8th edition features a variety of problems with applications from the physical sciences, health, biology, engineering, and economics, allowing for engagement across multiple majors. The Consortium brings Calculus to (real) life with current, relevant examples and a focus on active learning.
