Calculus: Graphical, Numerical, Algebraic AP Edition 6th Edition © 2020
Calculus: Graphical, Numerical, Algebraic guides students to a deep understanding of advanced mathematical concepts with a structure that prepares them for the AP® examination at the end of the year.
 Intext questions and exercises reflect current AP formats
 Expanded treatment of the derivative as a measure of sensitivity
 New and improved Chapter Opener questions
 More historical nuggets sprinkled throughout
AP® Calculus Program for High School Students with Digital Resources
Prepare students for the Calculus AB or BC AP exam with a text that reflects the curriculum and pedagogy of an AP course.
Conceptual Reinforcement
Lessons are structured to encourage deep learning. Some problems suggest students find a solution without a graphing calculator if it isn’t necessarily needed.
Test Prep
Multiple choice questions now have four options rather than five, and free response questions now better reflect the style and structure students will encounter on the AP® Calculus examination.
Supportive Flexibility
Course management comes easily with the ability to quickly create and assign homework, quizzes, and tests. Automatic grading goes straight to the online Gradebook so teachers can focus on instruction.
Emphasis and Reinforcement
Important mathematical concepts are interwoven throughout the chapters to stress how critical they are for calculus and to help students better remember them in the future.
AP® Calculus Teaching Solutions

Function Representation

Chapter Review Exercises

Derivatives and Linear Equations

RealWorld Behavior

Understanding ConnectionsStudents work with functions represented graphically, numerically, analytically, or verbally. The course helps them better understand the interconnections among these presentations.

Deepening FamiliarityStarts with Reasoning with Definitions and Theorems questions that require students to dig more deeply into the concepts of calculus.

Review ExercisesReview exercises can be assigned for individual practice or to encourage discussion among classmates.

Treatment of the DerivativeThe authors have expanded the treatment of the derivative as a measure of sensitivity. The topic appears in several different sections of the text to emphasize its importance.

PointSlope FormThe commitment to pointslope form for linear equations has been enhanced throughout. Their written form highlights the concept of local linearity, critical for understanding differential calculus.

Modeling BehaviorStudents will be able to model realworld behavior and solve a variety of problems using functions, derivatives, and integrals. They also practice effective communication skills by using proper mathematical language and syntax in presenting their solutions.

Franklin D. Demana Author Bio
Frank Demana received his master’s degree in mathematics and his Ph.D. from Michigan State University. He taught for many years at The Ohio State University before retiring as Professor Emeritus of Mathematics. As an active supporter of the use of technology to teach and learn mathematics, he is cofounder of the international Teachers Teaching with Technology (T3) professional development program. He has been the director and codirector of more than $10 million of National Science Foundation (NSF) and foundational grant activities, including a $3 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education Mathematics and Science Educational Research program awarded to The Ohio State University. Along with frequent presentations at professional meetings, he has published a variety of articles in the areas of computer and calculatorenhanced mathematics instruction. Dr. Demana is also cofounder (with Bert Waits) of the annual International Conference on Technology in Collegiate Mathematics (ICTCM). He is corecipient of the 1997 Glenn Gilbert National Leadership Award presented by the National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics, and corecipient of the 1998 ChristoffersonFawcett Mathematics Education Award presented by the Ohio Council of Teachers of Mathematics. Dr. Demana coauthored Precalculus: Graphical, Numerical, Algebraic; Essential Algebra: A Calculator Approach; Transition to College Mathematics; College Algebra and Trigonometry: A Graphing Approach; College Algebra: A Graphing Approach; Precalculus: Functions and Graphs; and Intermediate Algebra: A Graphing Approach.

Bert K. Waits Author BioBert Waits received his Ph.D. from The Ohio State University and taught Ohio State students for many years before retiring as Professor Emeritus of Mathematics. Dr. Waits cofounded the international Teachers Teaching with Technology (T3) professional development program and was codirector or principal investigator on several large projects funded by the National Science Foundation. Active in both the Mathematical Association of America and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, he published more than 70 articles in professional journals and conducted countless lectures, workshops, and minicourses on how to use computer technology to enhance the teaching and learning of mathematics. Dr. Waits was corecipient of the 1997 Glenn Gilbert National Leadership Award presented by the National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics and of the 1998 ChristoffersonFawcett Mathematics Education Award presented by the Ohio Council of Teachers of Mathematics. He was the cofounder (with Frank Demana) of the ICTCM and was one of six authors of the high school portion of the groundbreaking 1989 NCTM Standards. Dr. Waits was hard at work on revisions for the fifth edition of this calculus text when he died prematurely on July 27, 2014, leaving behind a powerful legacy in the legions of teachers whom he inspired. Dr. Waits coauthored Precalculus: Graphical, Numerical, Algebraic; College Algebra and Trigonometry: A Graphing Approach; College Algebra: A Graphing Approach; Precalculus: Functions and Graphs; and Intermediate Algebra: A Graphing Approach.

Daniel Kennedy Author BioDan Kennedy received his undergraduate degree from the College of the Holy Cross and his master’s degree and Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Since 1973 he has taught mathematics at the Baylor School in Chattanooga, Tennessee, where he holds the Cartter Lupton Distinguished Professorship. Dr. Kennedy joined the Advanced Placement® Calculus Test Development Committee in 1986, then in 1990 became the first high school teacher in 35 years to chair that committee. It was during his tenure as chair that the program moved to require graphing calculators and laid the early groundwork for the 1998 reform of the Advanced Placement Calculus curriculum. The author of the 1997 Teacher’s Guide—AP® Calculus , Dr. Kennedy has conducted more than 50 workshops and institutes for high school calculus teachers. His articles on mathematics teaching have appeared in the Mathematics Teacher and the American Mathematical Monthly , and he is a frequent speaker on education reform at professional and civic meetings.
