Calculus Resources: Textbooks with Solutions

Textbooks on reserve in the library

Textbooks with solutions manuals will be available on reserve at the SPSCC Library.

Free Online Textbooks

Free online calculus textbooks are available on the following sites.  Some sites list each chapter separately, for easy printing.  

  • APEX Calculus : Used in Nivala's Math 151 section.  This is the free textbook that most closely resembles the popular (and expensive) Stewart Calculus text, and includes short answers to odd-numbered exercises at the end of the book.

  • Active Calculus:  A non-traditional book that uses activities to engage students in active learning.  

  • Community Calculus:  A traditional calculus book that includes short answers to every exercise (in Appendix)
