The text is now in its twelfth edition and continues to guide students through their calculus courses. He also co-authored monographs on mathematics, including the text Probability and Statistics.

#### Calculus International Edition

$84.40- Real-life, Relevant Applications: Soo Tan’s intuitive approach to calculus links the abstract ideas of calculus with concrete, real-life examples. One such example—the maglev (magnetic levitation) train is used as a common thread from limits through integration, to show students the connection between all of these concepts.
- Intuitive Presentation Style: By introducing the limit concept in the context of finding the rate of change of the maglev train, Tan captures student interest from the very beginning – this approach demonstrates the relevance of calculus in the real world. Elsewhere in the text, this intuitive approach (and the maglev example) is again used to advantage to introduce and explain some of the fundamental theorems in calculus, such as the Intermediate Value Theorem and the Mean Value Theorem.
- Guidance When Students Need It: Comments appear next to many of the steps and aid in student understanding. Notes found at the end of many examples further explain and clarify the example, and point out subtleties within them. Cautions advise students on how to avoid common mistakes and misunderstandings, addressing both student misconceptions and situations that often lead students down unproductive paths.

**About the author**

Ron Larson received his Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Colorado in 1970. At that time, he accepted a position with Penn State University in Erie, Pennsylvania, and currently holds the rank of professor of mathematics at the university. Ron is the lead author for over forty mathematics textbooks from 6th grade through calculus. Many of his texts, such as the 9th edition of is calculus text, are leaders in their markets.

Ron Larson is one of the pioneers in the use of multimedia to enhance the learning of mathematics. He has authored multimedia programs that range from 1st grade through calculus. To help with the development of his textbooks and multimedia programs, Ron founded Larson Texts, Inc., which with its publishing wing, Big Ideas Learning, employs about 60 people. Ron’s most recent new textbook series is called “Big Ideas Math”. It is the first middle school mathematics series to adhere to the NCTM’s new “Focal Points Curriculum”.
