Calculus and Its Applications - 10th edition

Calculus and Its Applications (ISBN10: 0130466107; ISBN13: 9780130466105)
ISBN13: 978-0130466105
ISBN10: 0130466107

Summary: These extremely readable, highly regarded, and widely adopted texts present innovative ways for applying calculus to real-world situations in the business, economics, life science, and social science disciplines. The texts' straightforward, engaging approach fosters the growth of both the student's mathematical maturity and his/her appreciation for the usefulness of mathematics. The authors' tried and true formula -- pairing substantial amounts of graphical analysis moreand informal geometric proofs with an abundance of hands-on exercises -- has proven to be tremendously successful with both students and instructors.


  • NEW -- With contributions from Nahkle Asmar, University of Missouri, Columbia.
  • NEW -- Additional and Revised Exercises.
  • Over 400 new and revised exercises include problems that challenge the more capable students and problems designed to aid students with limited math background.
  • New genre of problems tests the students' understanding of mathematical formulas.
  • Increased number of problems that stress the ability to read graphs.
  • Many new applications from business, medicine, life and social sciences -- based on current real-world data.
  • Over 90 new problems on differential equations and their applications.
  • NEW -- Additional and Revised Art -- Over 80 new and revised graphs have been added.
  • Enhances examples and exercises.
  • NEW -- Revision of Sections.
  • Section 2.6 topics have been reordered and a detailed example and figures were added to allow an easier access to the inventory control problem from business.
  • Worked examples and figures were added to Section 5.3 to provide clearer and more accessible discussion of the topic of elasticity of demand from economics.
  • The topics of Section 7.6 on nonlinear regression have been reordered. The Pareto distribution is used as an example of a power regression function to model the distribution of income of the US male population in 2001. Results from this section are compared to actual statistical data.
  • Section 10.1 has been expanded to include the topic of slope fields and the geometric interpretation of a differential equation. Using graphs to study solutions of differential equations and their real-life applications is emphasized.
  • NEW -- Two new sections on differential equations.
  • Section 10.3 contains several worked examples and figures that provide a smooth and accessible study of the technique of integrating factor for solving first order linear differential equations.
  • Section 10.4 presents exciting real-life applications, including investment accounts, paying off car loans, home mortgages, Newton's law of cooling, population models with migration and many problems from medicine.
  • Carefully designed exercise sets.
  • Challenges students to make their own connections.
  • Practice Problems.
  • Motivates students with supported tasks.
  • Self-Contained Material.
  • Allows students with limited math knowledge to access information.
  • Real-life applications/scenarios.
  • Demonstrates to students the relevance of their studies.
  • Easy-to-understand instructions for using calculators are provided.
  • Eliminates the need for a manual.
  • Provides more help available on the website. less
