There is a new textbook for students following calculus. Calculus Single and Multivariable 6th Edition is written by a whole host of contributors from various levels of education departments.

Calculus Single and Multivariable 6th Edition promotes courses that emphasize comprehension through problem solving. Calculus Single and Multivariable 6th Edition uses many different views fostered at various research universities and schools. This edition has been contoured to build an elastic pathway to theory and to making connections. The authors make a point of using hundreds of extant examples in the problems. These include such important subjects as global oil consumption, and physics, or even biology.

These 1,200 pages of calculus make up a text that can be used all the way from High School to all four semesters of undergraduate work. The **Calculus Single and Multivariable 6th Edition** is a must for teachers that are heavy on problem practice, and on “teaching to the test.” Students will either love it or hate it. There is no middle-ground for appreciation of this book. This text book is not designed for self-study. It is designed to provide the basics for the student. Approached in tandem with the instructor in the classroom it becomes an intimate and corroborative search for answers through the tools supplied. There are many wonderful problems that are crucial to exams that do not have solutions provided in the text. This is intrinsic to the design of the book. Such problems are built in to allow the student and instructor to pursue together through the interactive devices available at Wiley PLUS. This is where the product shines. By forcing the interaction of the student and instructor, the book builds an intuitive bond that will never be broken. There is a lot wedged into these pages. Still, not nearly as much as can be and often is crammed into a brain.

Looking into the future, it is easy to see that this text will be hated by some students and instructors because it “teaches to the exam.” However, there is no other text that sports so many problems applicable to so many other disciplines. There is a downside found in the problem solving material: You can get lost and the index will not mentor you and explanations of solutions are meager. It is at this point that teachers will need to possess the ability to embellish which requires a lot of extra effort. That, some would say, makes the cost of the book worthwhile as the connection between student and instructor continues to grow with each problem solved.

It is obvious that the single most potent hatred of students for such books as the Calculus Single and Multivariable 6th Edition has been intentionally kept in context. That is the fact that the lesson problems do not conform to the homework problems. After all, calculus is not a discipline of mimicry. It is a school of thought designed to solve future problems on a world constantly plagued with new challenges. It is a discipline designed to guide the mind to think, not imitate. This text is meant to allow the student to understand the concept that life is ever changing and so are the methods of unravelling the problems created by those changes. As such, it is a textbook that looks to the uncertain future with the certainty that minds can develop the discipline to enhance that future.
