Stefan Waner and Steven Costenoble's APPLIED CALCULUS, Third Edition is designed to address the considerable challenge of generating enthusiasm and developing mathematical sophistication in applied mathematics courses offered on many college campuses. The new edition retains its engaging conversational style and focus on real data and real world applications of mathematics--a strategy that has proven to be pedagogically successful. The wealth of applications, the highly effective integrated, yet optional, use of graphing calculators or spreadsheets, and the robust supplemental Web site that has received praise from around the world, make Waner/Costenoble's text an outstanding choice.

**Benefits: **

- NEW! Chapter One has been revised to include expanded coverage of linear regression.
- NEW! The number of exercises has been increased by 17 percent with additional easier computational exercises at the start of many exercise sets and significantly more Communication and Reasoning exercises. Exercises and examples based on dated information have generally been replaced by more current versions.
- NEW! A new arrangement of exercise sets reflects increasing level of difficulty.
- NEW! A new four-color design calls out the many excellent pedagogical tools, making them more efficient tools for instructors and students.
- Unique integration of graphing calculators, spreadsheets (using Excel), and the Web, supports a wide range of instructional settings. The text is suitable for classes relying exclusively on graphing calculators, web-based technology, or Excel, a combination of these, or none of them.
- Clearly delineated and carefully structured discussions introduce many of the central concepts in three ways: numerically, graphically, and algebraically.
- Written in a conversational, student-oriented style, the text combines interactive pedagogical devices with solid mathematics and a flexible approach to technology, and effectively addresses the difficult issues of teaching less-than-enthusiastic students.
- A text-specific Web site rich in features offers interactive tutorials, review exercises, and online utilities for a variety of tasks like graphing, regression, and matrix algebra. The site enhances interest, learning, and comprehension.
- A large number of the examples and exercises use referenced real data from business, economics, the life sciences, and the social sciences, appropriately modified and streamlined to keep the applications tractable.
- A case study framework for chapter topics begins each chapter with a statement of an interesting problem that is revisited at the end of the chapter.
- NEW! The integrated discussions of Excel and graphing calculators as optional tools have been expanded.
- NEW! Trigonometric functions material has been placed in a separate chapter.
- NEW! An expanded treatment of limits includes an additional section on the concept of continuity. The discussion of the algebraic approach to limits is now in a section by itself.
- NEW! Chapter 2 has additional material on regression for all the non-linear functions, and this coverage has been added to the new Trigonometry chapter.
- NEW! A new (optional) section on logistic models and regression has been added to Chapter 2.
- NEW! The significantly revised Chapter 3 on derivatives consolidates the graphical and numerical approaches and includes more on the algebraic approach.
- NEW! The highly effective pedagogy from the second edition has been expanded with more "Quick Examples", more "Question and Answer Dialog" boxes, additional Excel and graphing calculator instructions, and additional Web site information.
- NEW! A new boxed-feature called "Guidelines" appears at the ends of sections to assist students in problem-solving.
