Summary: Designed for the one- to two-semester Business/Applied Calculus course that commonly requires the use of graphing utilities and spreadsheets, Calculus Concepts takes an applications-based approach that involves modeling, the use and interpretation of real-world data, and the use of technology. The text helps build bridges between the mathematics of calculus and the real-world concepts students will face in their future careers. Students use real data and graphing tec morehnology to build their own models and interpret results.

The Second Edition has been revised to provide instructors with greater flexibility. New topics and levels of academic rigor have been incorporated to accommodate a variety of course needs, but may be omitted without loss of continuity. Instructors may simply choose the emphasis and topics most suited to their particular course.

  • Concept Check lists at the end of each chapter summarize the main concepts and skills taught in the chapter.
