Building on the proven success of its previous edition, Calculus and Its Applications, Second Edition helps students across the curriculum discover the excitement and relevance of applied calculus. Retaining his integrated problem-solving approach, the author engages students in the learning process by carefully discussing key questions, determining equations, and demonstrating the relation between the final solution and the original problem.

  • Throughout the text, technology exercises reinforce concepts and understanding while adding an exciting visual dimension to the study of calculus.
  • In keeping with AMATYC and MAA standards, a wealth of writing exercises encourage students to reason and understand the concepts they are studying.
  • Equations and functions fit mathematical models to real data to show students how calculus applies to real-life situations.
