Dwyer and Gruenwald’s Calculus Resequenced for Students in STEM, Preliminary Edition highlights a new approach to calculus and is devoted to improving the calculus sequence for students in STEM majors. The text introduces a new standard for order and choice of topics for the 3-semester sequence.  Resequencing topics in the calculus sequence allows for front-loading material for upper-level STEM majors into the first two semesters, ensuring Calculus 2 is an attractive jumping-off point for students in biology and chemistry. The topical ordering was developed in consultation with advisory boards consisting of educators in mathematics, biology, chemistry, physics, engineering and economics at diverse institutions.
