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 technology 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.

- New! Chapter Applications have been revised and updated to correspond to an activity in the chapter.
- Concept Objectives present each chapter's goals in a chapter-opening list, divided into concepts and skills.
- Concept Inventories at the end of each section summarize the key concepts and skills developed within that section.
- Concept Check lists at the end of each chapter summarize the main concepts and skills taught in the chapter.
- Concept Review/Chapter Tests at the end of each chapter provide more practice with techniques and concepts. Answers to these tests are included in the answer key at the back of the text.
- New! Integrated web resources in the Second Edition feature special web icons in the text margin that refer students to additional pedagogical support available on the text-specific web site, including self-tests, algebraic tutorials, additional practice problems, data updates, a glossary, and more.
- This edition features hundreds of updated models and data sets as well as many new activities.
- New! Technology Guides for Excel and Graphing Calculators show students how to solve certain examples in the text using their particular technology. The manuals include instructions for the TI-83, TI-86, and TI-89 calculators as well as for Excel. Sections of the manuals are referenced in the text by a technology icon.
