I have read a maths textbook. Not only have I read a maths text, I have actually done a huge portion of the problems in the book. With regards to full disclosure, I am a professor of Mathematics, so I have definitely read this from a very different perspective compared to a student learning for the first time.

Problems Plus.He worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of London, where his research focused on harmonic and functional analysis. Stewart was most recently Professor of Mathematics at McMaster University, and his research field was harmonic analysis. Stewart was the author of a best calculus textbook series published by Cengage Learning, including Calculus, Calculus: Early Transcendentals and Calculus: Concepts and Contexts, as well as a series of precalculus texts. CLEAR EXPOSITION: Dan Clegg and Saleem Watson have remained true to James Stewart's writing style speaking clearly and directly to students, guiding them through key ideas, theorems and problem-solving steps, and encouraging them to think as they read and learn calculus. Peterson, Ivars (August–September 2009). "James Stewart and the House That Calculus Built" (PDF). MAA Focus. 29 (4): 4–6. ISSN 0731-2040 . Retrieved 2009-07-27. Article about Stewart's "Integral House". More challenging exercises called "Problems Plus" follow the end-of-chapter exercises. These sections reinforce concepts by requiring students to apply techniques from more than one chapter of the text, and by patiently showing them how to approach a challenging problem.

The Divergence Theorem. Summary. Review. Problems Plus. Every concept is supported by thoughtfully worked examples—many with step-by-step explanations—and carefully chosen exercises. The quality of this pedagogical system is what sets Stewart's texts above others.

So, if they put all the ODE material into a single chapter that would be wonderful. The truly missed opportunity at the end of Multivariable Calculus is that the student is equipped to study some of the lower level Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) that are out there. Such as just finding characteristic equations and such would be a huge boost to the students. PDE books notoriously don't write out step by step examples, but Stewart could have put them in at this location and doing a few basic problems. HELPFUL EXAMPLES: Every concept is supported by thoughtfully worked examples that encourage students to develop an analytic view of the subject. To provide further insight into mathematical concepts, many detailed examples display solutions graphically, analytically, and/or numerically. Margin notes expand on and clarify the steps of the solution.

Problems Plus. James Drewry Stewart, MSC (March 29, 1941–December 3, 2014) was a Canadian mathematician, violinist, and professor emeritus of mathematics at McMaster University. Stewart is best known for his series of calculus textbooks used for high school, college, and university level courses.Now, perhaps, a new chapter in my life unfolds where I feel the urge to potentially acquire a PhD, but it has been quite a long time since I have studied all aspects of Calculus. I have, for the past decade primarily been teaching some variation of Calculus 1 or Pre-Calculus, so I am rather decent with those subjects. While I remembered quite a bit from Integral and Multivariable Calculus, it has been quite some time since I have flexed that muscle and worked problems. I decided to return to an old favorite of a text and got the latest edition of this wonderful tome written by James Stewart. Modeling with Differential Equations. Direction Fields and Euler’s Method. Separable Equations. Applied Project: How Fast Does a Tank Drain? Models for Population Growth. Linear Equations. Applied Project: Which Is Faster, Going Up or Coming Down? Predator-Prey Systems. Review. Problems Plus.

If you want to do mathematics the right way, you need to put pen to paper, this is unavoidable. It is not enough to read these texts like a novel, as any mathematician will tell you. You, truly, can only learn it by doing it and I don't really care how much of a genius someone is, they are still human and will need to do this at some point. One of the complaints one of my colleagues had about the text was that the problem sets in Stewart were too easy, so that was one of the major justifications for using Thomas, despite the exposition being sub par in my opinion. I am happy to report that the 8th Edition seems to be rather different from the 2nd edition that I remember working in. The 8th Edition has definitely cranked up the difficulty level on the problem sets, in some ways this was detrimental to later sections of the text. (It's the one criticism I have of the text, but I will get into that later). This increased challenge factor to the problems has truly launched this book into the flagship Calculus book category for me. Stewart was gay and involved in LGBT activism. According to Joseph Clement, a documentary filmmaker who is working on a film about Stewart and Integral House, Stewart brought gay rights activist George Hislop to speak at McMaster in the early 1970s, when the LGBT liberation movement was in its infancy, and was involved in protests and demonstrations. [2] Death [ edit ] The late James Stewart received his M.S. from Stanford University and his Ph.D. from the University of Toronto. He conducted research at the University of London and was influenced by the famous mathematician George Polya at Stanford University. Dr. Stewart most recently served as a professor of mathematics at McMaster University, and his research focused on harmonic analysis. Dr. Stewart authored a best-selling calculus textbook series, including CALCULUS, CALCULUS: EARLY TRANSCENDENTALS and CALCULUS: CONCEPTS AND CONTEXTS as well as a series of successful precalculus texts. Daniel Clegg received his B.A. in Mathematics from California State University, Fullerton and his M.A. in Mathematics from UCLA. He is currently a professor of mathematics at Palomar College near San Diego, California, where he has taught for more than 20 years. Clegg co-authored BRIEF APPLIED CALCULUS with James Stewart and also assisted Stewart with various aspects of his calculus texts and ancillaries for almost 20 years.QUALITY EXERCISES: With over 8000 exercises in all, each exercise set carefully progresses from skill-development problems to more challenging problems involving applications and proofs. Conceptual exercises encourage the development of communication skills by explicitly requesting descriptions, conjectures, and explanations. More challenging “Problems Plus” exercises reinforce concepts by requiring students to apply techniques from more than one chapter of the text, and by patiently showing them how to approach a challenging problem.
