Calculus Vol 1

Openstax, Strang, Herman
 

Calculus is designed for the typical two- or three-semester general calculus course, incorporating innovative features to enhance student learning. The book guides students through the core concepts of calculus and helps them understand how those concepts apply to their lives and the world around them. Due to the comprehensive nature of the material, OpenStax split the book into 3 volumes. Volume 1 covers functions, limits, derivatives, and integration. Volume 2 covers integration, differential equations, sequences and series, and parametric equations and polar coordinates. Volume 3 covers parametric equations and polar coordinates, vectors, functions of several variables, multiple integration, and second-order differential equations.
