This lively, informal applied calculus text speaks directly to the needs of students in business, economics, life sciences, social sciences, and liberal arts. In a clear, conversational style, the authors focus on key themes without bogging students down in peripheral detail. Throughout the text, the authors successfully present real and interesting examples and exercises ranging from simple and engaging human-interest problems to important global issues which keep interest level and motivation high enabling you to apply the mathematics you are learning. The text is carefully structured while remaining interesting, clear, and relevant.
This full edition is designed for a full, one-year version of the course covering material that includes functions, limits, derivatives, integrals, an introduction to multi-variable calculus, and trigonometric functions, with interesting real-life applications throughout; as well as differential equations and applications, high-order approximations, and probability and statistics.
