Learn calculus the fun way, with dozens of hands-on interactives that let you explore the subject and over 10 hours of animated video explanations. In Hands-On Calculus, you'll never go more than a minute without interacting with our Virtual Tutor, and you can even log in to track your progress.
This textbook covers the first two semesters of the typical high school or college calculus course, including:
All 3 chapters from Hands-On Precalculus (functions, limits, and series) Definition of the derivative Derivatives of common functions Addition, product, and quotient rules Chain rule and implicit differentiation Second and higher derivatives Linear approximations L'Hopital's rule Integrals and Riemann sums Fundamental theorem of calculus Integration by parts, u-substitution, and partial fractions Why all of this matters!

What's New in Version 2.5
- Interactive content now compatible with both iPad and OS X Mavericks - New lesson on using integrals to compute volumes - Two new lessons on differential equations
Problems and strength
I find the course to be easy to understand. However, the program is not stable and crashes frequently. If the stability problem is fixed, it would be worth using. However, in the present form, it would be better to find a different program
Combines short text sessions with graphics and then short talks and a few problems. Tutorials are provided if you are having challenges with the problems. A lot more enjoyable then even the dummies books.
Very well done
Very well done. However, many more of the end chapter problems should have hints/solutions provided on request. Fix this and I will bump up to five stars.
