Summary

Designed for students majoring in business, economics, social sciences, or life sciences, this mathematically correct, accessible, and student-friendly introduction to applied calculus prepares students to deal with calculus topics when they are encountered in other areas. The emphasis throughout is on computational skills, ideas, and problem solvingrather than on mathematical theory. Most derivations and proofs are omitted except where their inclusion adds significant insight into a particular concept, and general concepts and results are usually presented only after particular cases have been discussed.
