## Overview

Designed for the three-semester engineering calculus course, CALCULUS: EARLY TRANSCENDENTAL FUNCTIONS, 5/e, continues to offer instructors and students innovative teaching and learning resources. The Larson team always has two main objectives for text revisions: to develop precise, readable materials for students that clearly define and demonstrate concepts and rules of calculus; and to design comprehensive teaching resources for instructors that employ proven pedagogical techniques and save time. The Larson/ Edwards Calculus program offers a solution to address the needs of any calculus course and any level of calculus student. Every edition from the first to the fifth of CALCULUS: EARLY TRANSCENDENTAL FUNCTIONS, 5/e has made the mastery of traditional calculus skills a priority, while embracing the best features of new technology and, when appropriate, calculus reform ideas.
