© 2016

Calculus: Early Transcendentals, 11th Edition strives to increase student comprehension and conceptual understanding through a balance between rigor and clarity of explanations, sound mathematics, and excellent exercises, applications, and examples. Anton pedagogically approaches calculus through the rule of four, presenting concepts from verbal, algebraic, visual, and numerical points of view.


  • WileyPLUS helps to ensure that each study session has a positive outcome by putting students in control. Through instant feedback and study objective reports, students know if they did it right and where to focus next, so they achieve the strongest results.
  • ORION Algebra & Trigonometry Skills Refresher Module: An adaptive practice to master algebra, trigonometry, and polynomial equations provides students with a personalized study plan to master concepts prior to the course, allowing for instructors to focus class time on calculus.
  • New! Video Program: Videos of worked examples and problems covering the subject material in the Single Variable chapters of the 11th edition.
  • New! Answer Specific Feedback Questions: Within WileyPLUS with ORION this edition of Anton will feature this new question type allowing students to have customized feedback on the actual work they’re doing.
  • New! WileyPLUS Math Enhancements: Measure conceptual understanding in an online learning environment, through intelligent tutoring, graphing enhancements, improvements to Show Work Whiteboard, expanded test bank functionality, and enhanced grading rules functionality.
  • Pre-created activities encourage learning outside of the classroom through gradable reading assignment questions and more than 3,000 end-of-chapter problems coded algorithmically.
