Assessments that reinforce key concepts

In-chapter Examples walk students through problems by posing a question, stepping out a solution, and then asking students to practice the skill with a “Checkpoint” question. The book also includes assessments at the end of each chapter so students can apply what they’ve learned through practice problems. Many exercises are marked with a [T] to indicate they are suitable for solution by technology, including calculators or Computer Algebra Systems (CAS). Answers for selected exercises are available in the Answer Key at the back of the book.

Early or late transcendentals

Calculus Volume 1 is designed to accommodate both Early and Late Transcendental approaches to calculus. Exponential and logarithmic functions are introduced informally in Chapter 1 and presented in more rigorous terms in Chapter 6. Differentiation and integration of these functions is covered in Chapters 3–5 for instructors who want to include them with other types of functions. These discussions, however, are in separate sections that can be skipped for instructors who prefer to wait until the integral definitions are given before teaching the calculus derivations of exponentials and logarithms.

Webwork

WeBWorK is a well-tested homework system for delivering individualized calculus problems over the Web. By providing students with immediate feedback on the correctness of their answers, WeBWorK encourages students to make multiple attempts until they succeed. With individualized problem sets, students can work together but will have to enter their own work to receive credit. WeBWorK can present and grade any mathematics calculation problem from basic algebra through calculus, matrix linear algebra, and differential equations. Its extensible answer evaluators correctly recognize and grade a wide variety of answers, including numbers, functions, equations, answers with units and much more, allowing instructors and students to concentrate on correct mathematics and ask the questions they should rather than just the questions they can. More than 770 institutions currently use WeBWorK. WeBWork and its 30,000 plus library of Creative Commons-licensed problems are open source and free for institutions to use.

You have downloaded the aplication Calculus Volume 1, tackling about lessons for (mostly) college freshmen, Calculus 1: Differential, and this group I think aims to let concerns and questions from students who want to clarify something about the subject. Well, this is what I guess so.
