What is included with this book?


The 7th edition of Applied Calculus focuses on the "Rule of Four" (viewing problems graphically, numerically, symbolically, and verbally) to promote critical thinking to reveal solutions to mathematical problems. This approach reinforces the conceptual understanding necessary to reduce complicated problems to simple procedures without losing sight of the practical value of mathematics. In this edition, the authors continue their focus on introducing different perspectives for students with updated applications, exercises, and an increased emphasis on active learning.
