Brief Calculus With Applications is intended as a textbook for a one or two-term development of calculus. The mechanics and applications of calculus are accompanied by considerable detail to the algebraic manipulation.
The numerous applications are geared to Business Administration, Economics, Ecology, and the Life and Social Sciences. In addition to a textbook that is mathematically sound, the pedagogical approaches make the study of calculus much less a mystery. The approaches taken ensure that the student can read, visualize, comprehend, recall, and apply each concept in a real-world situation. Technology Talk segments describe the manner in which students can use a graphics calculator or CAS (computer algebra system) in relation to calculus. Approximately 2000 problems progress from Level A (easy or moderate) to Level B (moderate to difficult).
"The layout of the text/content in this book is excellent. It is easy to follow and comprehend. The suggestive uses of technology provide varying opportunities. This book is definitely my choice for an Applied Calculus course for Business and Social Science majors."
