Calter, Technical Mathematics with Calculus, Third Canadian Edition will equip instructors with the tools they need to engage and motivate students and then watch them succeed. This text provides real-world, technical applications that illustrate the relevance and usefulness of technical mathematics outside of the classroom. Our third Canadian edition is now four colour and takes a more student-friendly visual approach. It uses tables and diagrams to explain concepts in place of lengthy text explanations and its narrative has been streamlined and revised to a more conversational tone. The result is a text that is easy for students to read and follow. Additionally, Chapter 1 has been revised in response to feedback from students and instructors. It now provides a more succinct review focused on the foundational math skills students need to succeed in the course.

Fresh approach – Our Canadian authors have approached the text from a student point of view, simplifying the presentation of the content to meet the needs of the student. They have added complete walk-outs and step-by-step instruction for example solutions and minimized anecdotal, peripheral information.
New and improved feature boxes and icons enhance student engagement - Common Error and Formula boxes have been enhanced and Math Show Off and Calculator Tip boxes as well as a Math Rule icon have been added.
Reduced textbook size.
• Fully revised Chapter 1, major revisions to first third of text (chapters 1-10) to more effectively build gradual student understanding of concepts. Chapters 27 and 30 improved in response to reviewer feedback.
Now available in Binder Ready format
