Product Description

CALCULUS: EARLY TRANSCENDENTALS, 9th Edition, provides you with the strongest foundation for a STEM future. James Stewart�s Calculus series is the top-seller in the world because of its problem-solving focus, mathematical precision and accuracy, and outstanding examples and problem sets. Selected and mentored by Stewart, coauthors Daniel Clegg and Saleem Watson continue his legacy, and their careful refinements retain Stewart�s clarity of exposition and make the 9th Edition an even more usable learning tool. The accompanying WebAssign includes helpful learning support and new resources like Explore It interactive learning modules. Showing that Calculus is both practical and beautiful, the Stewart approach and WebAssign resources enhance understanding and build confidence for millions of students worldwide.

About the Author

The late James Stewart received his M.S. from Stanford University and his Ph.D. from the University of Toronto. He conducted research at the University of London and was influenced by the famous mathematician George Polya at Stanford University. Dr. Stewart most recently served as a professor of mathematics at McMaster University, and his research focused on harmonic analysis. Dr. Stewart authored a best-selling calculus textbook series, including CALCULUS, CALCULUS: EARLY TRANSCENDENTALS and CALCULUS: CONCEPTS AND CONTEXTS as well as a series of successful precalculus texts.

Daniel Clegg received his B.A. in Mathematics from California State University, Fullerton and his M.A. in Mathematics from UCLA. He is currently a professor of mathematics at Palomar College near San Diego, California, where he has taught for more than 20 years. Clegg co-authored BRIEF APPLIED CALCULUS with James Stewart and also assisted Stewart with various aspects of his calculus texts and ancillaries for almost 20 years.

Saleem Watson received his Bachelor of Science degree from Andrews University in Michigan. He did graduate studies at Dalhousie University and McMaster University, where he received his Ph.D. in 1978. He subsequently did research at the Mathematics Institute of the University of Warsaw in Poland. He also taught at The Pennsylvania State University. He is currently Professor of Mathematics at California State University, Long Beach. His research field is functional analysis. Watson is a co-author on Stewart''s best-selling Calculus franchise.

This book does a very good job of explaining the various concepts introduced, which are covered methodically. In fact, if the book consisted solely of those explanations I probably would have given it five stars, but it doesn''t: it also contains many practice problems and answers for the odd problems, and it''s those practice problems that caused me to downgrade my rating.

The trouble is, the book often makes large logical leaps between the material it presented and the problems you are expected to be able to solve. For example, after reading section 3.3 ("Derivatives of Trigonometric Functions") you come to problem #47, which is unlike any of the sample problems worked and explained in that section. The answer can be found in the back of the book, but there''s no explanation for how it was arrived at, which is arguably even more important information than the answer itself. After all, what I need much more than knowing the answer to THIS problem is how to solve problems LIKE it myself.

This is just the latest of many examples of this I''ve come across so far. In most cases it was possible to find an answer on the Internet, but that shouldn''t be necessary. More problematic -- but again something I''ve seen repeatedly with this book -- is that the solution to this problem (section 3.3. problem #47) is achieved using something not yet covered in the book, specifically L''Hospital''s rule, which isn''t covered until 100 pages later. Perhaps there''s a way of solving the problem without using L''Hospital''s rule, but it isn''t obvious even after re-reading the section and it''s revealing that the solutions I found on the Internet all relied on L''Hospital. If there are, say, two or three effective ways of solving this then why does everyone who knows how to work it use L''Hospital? If I had run into this kind of issue only once or twice I wouldn''t think much of it and chalk it up to my own lack of expertise, but I keep encountering the same thing over and over: the information provided is insufficient for understanding how to solve some of the problems presented.

Based on this, I suspect that the publishers'' reviewers for this book were probably all people who already knew calculus well and knew how to work the problems without actually learning it from the information provided. Granted, there''s a degree of logic to having experts review the content, but since the target audience is non-experts, it probably would be a good idea to have the problems worked by people who didn''t already know how to solve them and who could point out when the book has fallen short in preparing the reader.

P.S. After progressing further through the book, I''m downgrading my review by another star and once again it''s due to the exercises at the end of each section. For example, below is an actual problem (#25) from Section 3.9. My complaint is that these problem don''t test your knowledge of the calculus material presented, but rather your ability to follow lengthy, convoluted descriptions of a nonsensical problem. Note that it''s very easy to find numerous places on the web where the problems in this section are answered, which strongly implies that many people have found them difficult to solve.

25. Water is leaking out of an inverted conical tank at a rate of 10,000 cm^3/min at the same time that water is being pumped into the tank at a constant rate. The tank has height 6 m and the diameter at the top is 4 m. If the water level is rising at a rate of 20 cm/min when the height of the water is 2 m, find the rate at which water is being pumped into the tank.

Does NOT come with webassign
Reviewed in the United States on August 25, 2020
The product description describes the book as though WebAssign comes with it, but I received no code for WebAssign. This is important because I need it for my classes and I''ve wasted time.

Choose 9th edition...
Reviewed in the United States on February 25, 2020
This product has been broken into a "full" 9th edition and several subproducts. The 9th edition will take you through multivariate calculus, which brings the cost down to about $70/semester.
