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 ...show moreand informal geometric proofs with an abundance of hands-on exercises -- has proven to be tremendously successful with both students and instructors.

Feature:

  • 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.
