**Content of APEX Calculus, Version 3.0**

APEX Calculus comprises 13 chapters; each chapter and section is listed below. This text was written to have the same basic organization as most traditional calculus textbooks.

The whole text is 850+ pages long. For multiple reasons (lower cost per semester, lower weight per semester, increased likelihood of students bringing their text to class, etc.), APEX Calculus has been broken up into 3 overlapping volumes, roughly along traditional "Calc 1, 2 & 3" lines, as follows:

- Calculus 1: Chapters 1 through 6.1
- Limits through Integration by Substitution

- Calculus 2: Chapters 5 through 8
- Integration through Sequences and Series

- Calculus 3: Chapters 9 through 13
- Curves in the Plane through Multiple Integration

If this division does not match up well with your department's division of Calculus material:

- Tell me so I know what people are most interested in,
- Consider editing the source files at GitHub to create your own version, and/or
- Consider "just making it work as is"; while not ideal, the book is still a great text at a great price.
