Calculus and Its Applications is the most student-oriented applied calculus text on the market, and this tenth edition continues to improve on that approach. 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. By presenting more topics in a conceptual and often visual manner and adding student self-assessment and teaching aids, this revision addresses students’ needs better than ever before. 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 the distribution of wealth to the growth of membership in Facebook. 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 and illustrations 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 Appendix A: Review of Basic Algebra, together with Chapter R, provides a sufficient foundation to unify the diverse backgrounds of most students. For schools offering a two-term course, additional chapters are available online; see the Contents. ( Preface : Book : Page 8 )
