Sharing Wisdom Gained from Publishing a CDF eBook

Eric Schulz
Organization: Walla Walla Community College

Wolfram Technology Conference 2011
Conference location

Champaign, Illinois, USA

The print version of Calculus: Early Transcentals, by Briggs, Cochran, Gillett, and Schulz, Addison-Wesley/Pearson Education, contains almost 1,000 pages. The electronic version of the complete text was created from scratch as a Computable Document Format (CDF) eBook composed of 113 files, collectively containing 648 interactive figures. Navigation between any two sections of the ebook and to specific items within a section requires only two mouse clicks. The CDF ebook is distributed to thousands of students enrolled at hundreds of colleges directly from Pearson's MyMathLab website. The presenter is the author of the CDF ebook and will share wisdom gained from the experience of designing, creating, managing, and publishing the electronic version of Calculus.
