Taalman’s *Calculus I with Integrated Precalculus* helps students with weak mathematical backgrounds be successful in the calculus sequence, without retaking a precalculus course.

Taalman’s innovative text is the only book to interweave calculus with precalculus and algebra in a manner suitable for math and science majors— not a rehashing or just-in-time review of precalculus and algebra, but rather a new approach that uses a calculus-level toolbox to examine the structure and behavior of algebraic and transcendental functions.

This book was written specifically to tie in with the material covered in Taalman/Kohn *Calculus.* Students who begin their calculus sequence with *Calculus I with Integrated Precalculus* can easily continue on to Calculus II using the Taalman/Kohn text.

**Maximize Teaching and Learning with WebAssign Premium**

Macmillan Learning and WebAssign have partnered to deliver WebAssign *Premium* – a comprehensive and flexible suite of resources for your calculus course. Combining the most widely used online homework platform with authoritative textbook content and Macmillan’s esteemed Calctools, WebAssign *Premium* extends and enhances the classroom experience for instructors and students.

Features

**A Calculus 1 Course with Precalculus and Algebra**

This one-year alternative to Calculus I covers everything from factoring, functions, and graphs to delta/epsilon limit statements, derivatives, Riemann sums, and integration techniques. Coverage is sufficient for many students to complete their calculus studies, while paving the way for others to continue to Calculus II and III using any other textbook.

**Calculus First, Complex Computation Later**

Part I explores the basic concepts, definitions, and theorems of functions, limits, and differential calculus with examples based on simple calculations. In Part II, students study different classes of functions (general algebraic, exponential and logarithmic, and trigonometric functions). Increasing computational complexity over time allows students to gain skills and confidence. The third part of the book covers integration.

**Compact, Structured Exposition**

*Calculus I with Integrated Precalculus*offers students clear and compact instruction in a linear, straightforward, and predictable format. The book’s patient, uncluttered approach is structured to maximize student comprehension. Each section begins with uncluttered exposition that introduces and explains the concepts at hand and includes definitions, short examples and figures, and key theorems with proofs. The section is completed by longer, more complex examples that prepare students for the exercise sets.

**Categorized Exercises**

Exercises reflect concepts and skills introduced in the section examples; but also test student understanding of the development of the material and the reading itself and. Each exercise set includes the following categories of problems: *Thinking Back*, *Concepts,* *Skills*, *Applications*, Proofs, and *Thinking Forward.* Each chapter concludes with a set of *Chapter Review* exercises.
