Stay on current Cengage siteOffering a more robust WebAssign course, Stewart's CALCULUS: CONCEPTS AND CONTEXTS, Enhanced Edition, 4th Edition, offers a streamlined approach to teaching calculus, focusing on major concepts and supporting those with precise definitions, patient explanations, and carefully graded problems. CALCULUS: CONCEPTS AND CONTEXTS is highly regarded because this text offers a balance of theory and conceptual work to satisfy more progressive programs as well as those who are more comfortable teaching in a more traditional fashion.

- Explore It interactive modules in WebAssign engage students and develop conceptual understanding. Students learn the concept, watch a video, explore and test the concept, and discover when they would use it.
- The updated WebAssign course features the interactive MindTap reader, new animations, lecture videos and more.
- The new loose-leaf version of the text and Cengage Unlimited offer more affordable options for students.

- DIAGNOSTIC TESTS: Four diagnostic tests in the beginning of the book gauge students’ proficiency in Basic Algebra, Analytic Geometry, Functions, and Trigonometry. Answers are provided, and students who don't do well are referred to where they should seek help.
- CONCEPTUAL EXERCISES. The most important way to foster conceptual understanding is through assigned problems. Stewart Concepts offers various types of problems, including explanations/mathematical writing problems, use of graphs and tables, Concept Checks, and True/False quizzes in the review sections.
- GRADED HOMEWORK EXERCISES. Each exercise set is carefully graded, progressing from basic conceptual exercises and skill-development problems to more challenging problems involving applications and proofs.
