Summary: This brief version of Berresford's applied calculus text consists of Chapters 1-7 of his Calculus, 2/e, with two additional sections on differential equations appearing in Chapter 6. The hallmark of this popular text for the one-semester applied or business calculus course is its ability to engage students with a wealth of intriguing real-world applications. Instructors appreciate Berresford's careful and effective integration of technology and outstanding ped
agogical reinforcement, including unique section summaries.

Retaining the strengths of its first edition, Brief Applied Calculus, 2/e, features updated optional graphing calculator coverage. In addition, project and essay questions previously found at the end of each chapter are now incorporated into the section exercise sets.
  • New! Updated calculator references, which remain optional, apply to the TI-83 calculator and, where appropriate, the TI-89. Berresford's thoughtful integration of technology includes boxed Graphing Calculator Explorations and Exercises that examine new topics, carry out complex calculations, or show the limitations and pitfalls of technology.
  • Contemporary and interesting applications are selected from such wide-ranging fields as athletics, biomedical and environmental sciences, management and business, personal finance and management, social and behavioral sciences, and other topics of general interest. Application Previews introducing most sections offer in-depth, real-life applications that anticipate the section material.
  • Unique Section Summaries reinforce students' understanding by restating essential formulas and key concepts.
  • Chapter Summary with Hints and Suggestions provide review and specific reminders, with references to relevant practice exercises.
  • Practice Problems follow the more difficult worked-out examples, giving students an extra chance to assimilate the material. Full solutions are included at the back of the book.
  • Applications and exercises are graded according to difficulty. Applied Exercises are clearly labeled to highlight content and relevance. Projects and Essays, promoting writing and collaborative work, have been moved to section exercise sets.
  • Review Exercises following each chapter are accompanied by suggestions for compiling student practice tests. Cumulative Review Exercises at the conclusion of chapter groups reinforce previously learned concepts.
