Finite Mathematics and Calculus With Applications was written for the two-semester finite math and applied calculus course for students majoring in a variety of fields--business, economics, social science, and biological and physical science. Widely known for incorporating interesting, relevant, and realistic applications, this new edition now offers many more real applications citing current data sources. The new edition now offers more opportunities for use of technology, allowing for increased visualization and a better understanding of difficult concepts. A dedicated Web site rounds out the teaching and learning package, offering extended applications from the book, skill mastery quizzes, and graphing calculator programs tied to the text.
