# Pearson Interactive Calculus Figures

- Author:
- Marc Renault

- Topic:
- Calculus

These figures were created under the direction of Pearson (pearson.com) to accompany Thomas' Calculus and forthcoming titles. Figures were authored by Tim Brzezinski, Kevin Hopkins, Steve Phelps, and Marc Renault (in 2016) and by Marc Renault (since 2019).
These figures are free and open for all to use and enjoy. Questions? Corrections? Fan letters? Contact Marc Renault msrenault@ship.edu.
