## Free Calculus Textbooks

Here is a list of free calculus texts that you may use as an additional resource. If you find one of these more helpful than another, please let me know. Also, if you know of other resources, please let me know.

- Active Calculus by Matt Boelkins (Grand Valley State College). This is one of the newer additions to the list of free calculus texts and probably my favorite.
- Calculus by Gilbert Strang (MIT). This book is available as a free PDF from the MIT Open Courseware Project. There are also some corresponding videos, which can be found here.
- Whitman Calculus by David Guichard (Whitman College). This one is also available as a free PDF. You can also purchase a very inexpensive hardcopy from Lulu.
- Calculus Refresher by Paul Garrett (University of Minnesota). Another free PDF. This short book seems designed for students who have had some experience with calculus and need some review.
- Funny Little Calculus Text by Robert Ghrist of the University of Pennsylvania. Currently only first semester calculus, very short, and no exercises, but a free PDF.
- Paul’s Online Math Notes by Paul Dawkins of Lamar University. Paul’s notes cover Calculus 1-3, Linear Algebra, and more. The notes are available as free HTML-based material. These notes seem to be popular with students.
- Differential Calculus with Sage by David Joyner of the United States Naval Academy and Granville. This free book is available as either a PDF or in HTML form. The book covers first semester calculus and incorporates Sage, which is an open-source mathematics software package.
- Integral Calculus with Sage by Dale Hoffman (Bellevue Community College), William Stein (University of Washington), and David Joyner (United States Naval Academy). The book picks up where the previous book left off.
