## The Learning Curve

From the Learning Curve:

Learning Curves: Honors: Multivariable Calculus: What textbook would you use to teach honors Calc 3?

Already rejected: Apostal for being too linear-algebra-y and Hurley for being out of print.

Too linear-alebra-y? How can a multivariable calculus textbook be too linear-algebra-y? Multivariable derivatives and integrals are linear maps in an algebra-like space, aren't they?
