Calculus and Its Applications
Calculus and Its Applications, Ninth Edition, is the most student-oriented applied calculus text on the market. The authors believe that appealing to students' intuition and speaking in a direct, down-to-earth manner make this text accessible to any student possessing the prerequisite math skills. However, it is not enough for a text to be accessible--it must also provide students with motivation to learn. Tapping into areas of student interest, the authors provide an abundant supply of examples and exercises rich in real-world data from business, economics, environmental studies, health care, and the life sciences. New examples cover applications ranging from charting CEO pay to the melting polar ice cap. Found in every chapter, realistic applications draw students into the discipline and help them to generalize the material and apply it to new and novel situations. To further spark student interest, hundreds of meticulously drawn graphs, illustrations, and tables appear throughout the text, making it a favorite among students who are visual learners. Appropriate for a one-term course, this text is an introduction to applied calculus. A course in intermediate algebra is a prerequisite, although the Appendix, "Review of Basic Algebra," together with Chapter R, provides a sufficient foundation to unify the diverse backgrounds of most students.
