AP® Edition ©2014
Briggs, Cochran, Gillett

Renowned authors William Briggs and Lyle Cochran have built from the ground up a AP calculus program that draws on their decades of teaching experience and carries the teacher's voice beyond the classroom. That voice is evident in the lively narrative, the intuitive figures, and the integrated questions that check for comprehension. The result is a master AP teacher leading AP students to deeper levels of understanding. The authors appeal to readers' geometric intuition to introduce fundamental concepts and lay the foundation for success on the AB and BC Calculus Exams.

  • AP® Aligned: AP-specific chapter content clearly correlates to the AP Curriculum Framework and prepares students for the AB or BC Exam.
  • Geometric Intuition: The authors appeal to students' intuition and geometric instincts to make calculus natural and believable. They introduce new ideas through concrete examples, figures, applications, or analogies.
  • Groundbreaking Technology & Interactive Figures: Interactive figures within the eBook enable teachers and students to manipulate figures and bring hard-to-convey concepts to life.
  • A Balanced Approach: The authors purposely teach from examples that provide in-depth explanations and build students' conceptual understanding and computational fluency.
