As promised last week, here is the newest version of Active Calculus, now with four additional chapters that can be used for the second semester of university calculus.
The link above is to the full text, all of chapters 1-8, as a Google document that should be embedded in your browser. From the new Active Calculus download page on my GVSU faculty website, you can find links to this file, as well as to just chapters 1-4, or to just the activities workbook for either the whole text or just chapters 1-4; in addition, there you can also find links that will allow to directly download the .pdf version of any file, rather than viewing it as a Google doc.
If you are interested in some sort of other custom arrangement of the files, please contact me at boelkinm at gvsu dot edu.
A couple of other notes:
- You’ll observe that Section 6.6 on Probability is not yet included. I will be working on this section early in 2013 and expect to post it by early February as an addendum. At the end of winter semester, this section will get fully incorporated into the latest version.
- We do not yet have hints or answers for the activities in chapters 5-8. Working towards the January 1, 2013, deadline made us focus on getting the exposition finished, so hints and solutions will have to follow later. The same is true for most of the exercises throughout the text. (If you are interested in the hints or solutions to activities in chapters 1-4, please contact me directly.)
- Again, my deep thanks to David Austin and Steve Schlicker for each contributing a chapter (David on Differential Equations, Steve on Sequences and Series).
If you will be using any part of Active Calculus in your classes this winter, I would appreciate hearing from you about how you plan to do so.
