Summary
A traditional book with a modern feel, market-leading APPLIED CALCULUS FOR THE MANAGERIAL, LIFE, AND SOCIAL SCIENCES: A BRIEF APPROACH, Ninth Edition, teaches by application and uses real-world examples to motivate students. It combines solid theory with innovative technology, includes a robust supplement package, and offers unmatched flexibility that caters to both traditional and modern practitioners.

Author Bio

Soo T. Tan, Professor of Mathematics at Stonehill College, has published numerous papers in Optimal Control Theory and Numerical Analysis. He received his S.B. degree from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, his M.S. degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and his Ph.D. from the University of California at Los Angeles. "One of the most important lessons I learned from my early experience teaching these courses is that many of the students come into these courses with some degree of apprehension. This awareness led to the intuitive approach I have adopted in all of my texts."
