Book Preface

Calculus with Applications is a thorough, applications-oriented text for students majoring in business, management, economics, or the life or social sciences. In addition to its clear exposition, this text consistently connects the mathematics to career and everyday-life situations. A prerequisite of two years of high school algebra is assumed. A greatly enhanced MyMathLab course, new applications and exercises, and other new learning tools make this 11th edition a rich learning resource for students.

Our Approach

Our main goal is to present applied calculus in a concise and meaningful way so that students can understand the full picture of the concepts they are learning and apply them to real-life situations. This is done through a variety of means.

Focus on Applications Making this course meaningful to students is critical to their success. Applications of the mathematics are integrated throughout the text in the exposition, the examples, the exercise sets, and the supplementary resources. We are constantly on the lookout for novel applications, and the text reflects our efforts to infuse it with relevance. Our research is showcased in the Index of Applications at the back of the book and the extended list of sources of real-world data on Calculus with Applications presents students with myriad opportunities to relate what they’re learning to career situations through the Apply It question at the beginning of sections, the applied examples and exercises, and the Extended Application at the end of each chapter. Pedagogy to Support Students Students need careful explanations of the mathematics along with examples presented in a clear and consistent manner. Additionally, students and instructors should have a means to assess the basic prerequisite skills needed for the course content. This can be done with the Prerequisite Skills Diagnostic Test, located just prior to Chapter R. If the diagnostic test reveals gaps in basic skills, students can find help right within the text. Further, Warm-Up Exercises are now included at the beginning of many exercise sets. Within MyMathLab are additional diagnostic tests (one per chapter), and remediation is automatically personalized to meet student needs. Students will appreciate the many annotated examples within the text, the Your Turn exercises that follow examples, the For Review references, and the wealth of learning resources within MyMathLab.

Beyond the Textbook Students want resources at their fingertips and, for them, that means digital access. So Pearson has developed a robust MyMathLab course for Calculus with Applications. MyMathLab has a well-established and well-documented track recordof helping students succeed in mathematics. The MyMathLab online course for this text contains over 2100 exercises to challenge students and provides help when they need it. Students who learn best through video can view (and review) section- and example level videos within MyMathLab. These and other resources are available to students as a unified and reliable tool for their success.
