Summary: The Second Edition of this engaging text for the two-semester applied calculus and finite mathematics course continues to use intriguing, real-world applications to capture the interest of business, economics, life, and social science majors. This practical approach to mathematics, along with the integration of graphing calculators and Excel spreadsheet explorations, exposes students to the tools they will encounter in future careers.

Summaries and reviews ...show moreappear frequently throughout the text to support students' mastery of mathematical concepts. A wealth of pedagogy includes the following distinctive features: detailed Worked-out Examples with Annotations help students through more challenging concepts; Practice Problems are offered to help students check their understanding of concepts presented in the examples; Section Summaries briefly restate essential formulas and key concepts; Chapter Summary with Hints and Suggestions unify chapter themes, give specific reminders, and reference problems in the review exercises suitable for a practice test; and Cumulative Review Exercises appear at the end of groups of chapters to reinforce previously learned concepts and skills.

  • Graphing Calculator Examples and Exercises located throughout the text explore new topics, guide students through "messy" calculations, or show technology pitfalls. These are optional and may be omitted without disrupting the flow or cohesion of the text.
  • Application Previews place mathematics in a real-world context and motivate students' interest in the material. Some examples of the diversity of applications covered include sports, genetic engineering, spread of disease, gambling, business, and environmental issues.
  • Annotations beside many formulas and solution steps emphasize the importance of being able to "read mathematics" by restating much of the mathematics in words.
