Once again, these extremely readable, highly regarded, and widely adopted texts present innovative ways for applying calculus to real-world situations in the business, economics, life science, and social science disciplines. The texts' straightforward, engaging approach fosters the growth of both the student's mathematical maturity and his/her appreciation for the usefulness of mathematics. The authors' "tried and true" formula pairing substantial amounts of graphical analysis and informal geometric proofs with an abundance of hands-on exercises has proven to be tremendously successful with both students and instructors. What would the benefit to your students be of using a text which blends practical applications with mathematical concepts?

**Features**

- NEW - Details the ways in which technology can be used to foster understanding of several topics while it facilitates computation.
- NEW - Ends each chapter with a Review of Fundamental Concepts, helping students focus on the chapter's key points.
- NEW - Places greater emphasis on the significance of differential equations in applications involving exponential functions.
- NEW - Customized calculus software is available through the study guide.
- NEW - Companion website supports and extends the materials presented in the text.
- NEW - All graphs of functions have been redrawn using Mathematicia.
- Reinforces class lessons with carefully designed exercise sets, and challenges students to make their own connections.
- Minimizes prerequisites, allowing those who have forgotten much of their high school mathematics to start anew with this self-contained material.
