Summary

This one-semester text was written as an introduction to calculus for business, economics, life and social science students. By always bringing graphical and numerical, as well as algebraic viewpoints to bear on each topic, Calculus: Applications and Technology, Second Edition presents a conceptual understanding of the calculus that is deep and useful in accommodating diverse applications. Use of technology throughout and hundreds of real applications give students a deeper understanding of the material.


Key Features:

  • Technology, especially the graphing calculator, is integrated, with graphing calculator screens appearing throughout the text.
  • Explorations are included throughout the text to encourage students to discover and explore new mathematical ideas.
  • The Technology Resource Manual, available with the text, has all the details, in user-friendly terms, on how to carry out any of the graphing calculator operations used in the text.
  • New emphasis has been placed on referenced real-world applications for examples and exercises.
  • The Rule of Four is followed: where possible, topics are presented geometrically, numerically, analytically, and verbally.
  • Extensive modeling is provided, allowing students to become familiar with the origins of functions used in calculus.
  • Chapter Projects, appearing at the end of each chapter, are provided for group work.
  • Definitions, theorems, and procedures are carefully and correctly given, with Heuristics and discussion distinguished from actual proofs to avoid confusing students.
  • The carefully crafted sequence of examples in each section varies incrementally from the least to the most complicated.
  • Exercise sets include skill problems, enrichment (to test conceptual understanding) and modelling problems.
  • Chapter summary outlines and review exercises, both found at the end of every chapter, conveniently summarize all the definitions, theormes, and procedures in one place.


    New to this Edition:

  • Extensive material has been added on mathematical modeling in real life situations. Regression analysis for linear, quadratic, power, polynomial, exponential, logarithmic, and logistic functions used to examine real world applications.
  • Real life referenced exercises have been added. Students see how calculus is actually used in real life applications, making the material more interesting and relevant.
  • Chapters and sections begin with case studies of real-world problems dealing with business, economics, and the sciences. The details of these applications are found later in the chapter.
  • Emphasis on graphical understanding and interpretation has been increased throughout examples and exercises.
