Happy New Year everyone. Here are a couple of brief updates if you are planning to use Active Calculus in the upcoming winter semester. Thanks to everyone who sent us errors they found in the text, as well as other suggestions. Steve has updated the multivariable version of the text to fix all known errors, […]
An overdue addition for Active Calculus (single) and the addition to AC Multivariable that prompted it: errata pages for both. You can find a list of currently identified errors in each text at these links: single variable, multivariable. Of course, if you find errors that need to be added to either page, please contact me.
This summer, in addition to working with Steve and David on AC3, I went through the original single-variable version and implemented changes to correct typos, clarify questions, and more in response to over 100 suggestions I received from users. To all of you who sent those to me: thank you. I’m pleased to say that […]

Having survived both the Michigan winter and the Grand Valley winter semester, I’m excited to get working more regularly on some items related to Active Calculus. Here’s an overview of my summer projects, two of which serve as a call for contributions from interested parties: – working on Multivariable Active Calculus Steve Schlicker, David Austin, and […]
In my mail today, I got a printed copy of the proof for the book. It was incredibly fun to see the text go from its purely electronic format and the planned cover image and see it actually become the print copy, lying on my dining room table in 3D: More details to follow as […]
One of the most enjoyable aspects of this free and open textbook project has been all of the new friends I’ve made in the mathematics community. I just got to see several of them in Portland at Mathfest, including Eric Sullivan of Carroll College in Helena, MT. As we caught up in person, Eric shared […]
