*Calculus: Single Variable, 8th Edition* promotes active learning by providing students across multiple majors with a variety of problems with applications from the physical sciences, medicine, economics, engineering, and more. Designed to promote critical thinking to solve mathematical problems while highlighting the practical value of mathematics, the textbook brings calculus to real life with engaging and relevant examples, numerous opportunities to master key mathematical concepts and skills, and a student-friendly approach that reinforces the conceptual understanding necessary to reduce complicated problems to simple procedures.

Developed by the Harvard University Calculus Consortium, Calculus focuses on the Rule of Four—viewing problems graphically, numerically, symbolically, and verbally—with particular emphasis placed on introducing a variety of perspectives for students with different learning styles. The eighth edition provides more problem sets, up-to-date examples, and a range of new multi-part graphing questions and visualizations powered by GeoGebra that reinforce the Rule of Four and strengthen students’ comprehension.
