About the Book
In 2013, Lyryx forked the now-popular Calculus open textbook written by David Guichard. Michael Cavers of the University of Calgary, together with the Lyryx editorial team, further redeveloped the content, examples, diagrams, and overall look-and-feel of the book, making it more accessible to first year college and university students. Additional contributors have helped improve the content, including Mark Blenkinsop of Carleton University.
In particular, there was the addition of an introductory chapter reviewing the fundamental topics required in a first semester Calculus course, and the paring down of topics that are typically beyond the scope of math and engineering service courses. Currently, the book covers the standard Calculus I and II courses, with Calculus III under development.
