Overview

Full of relevant, diverse, and current real-world applications students can relate to, Stefan Waner and Steven Costenoble's APPLIED CALCULUS, 7th Edition, helps your students see the relevance of mathematics to their interests. Many applications are based on real, referenced data from business, economics, and the life and social sciences. Clearly delineated spreadsheet and TI Graphing Calculator instruction appears throughout. Optional Technology Notes and Technology Guides allow you to include precisely the amount of technology instruction you choose. Acclaimed for accuracy and readability, APPLIED CALCULUS appeals to, and is appropriate for, all types of teaching and learning styles. Optional online solutions include MindTap® and Enhanced WebAssign®.

Meet the Author

Stefan Waner, Hofstra University

Stefan Waner and Steven R. Costenoble both received their Ph.D. from the University of Chicago, having studied several years apart with the same advisor, J. Peter May. Their paths merged when Steven joined Stefan at Hofstra University in 1987; since then they have coauthored 18 research papers as well as a research-level monograph in algebraic topology. By the early 1990s they had become dissatisfied with many of the Finite Mathematics and Applied Calculus textbooks. They wanted textbooks that were more readable and relevant to students' interests, containing examples and exercises that were interesting, and reflected the interactive approaches and techniques they found worked well with their own students. It therefore seemed natural to extend their research collaboration to a joint textbook writing project that expressed these ideals. To this day, they continue to work together on their textbook projects, their research in algebraic topology, and their teaching.

Features & Benefits

  • ENHANCED WEBASSIGN: APPLIED CALCULUS, 7th Edition, is fully supported by Enhanced WebAssign (EWA), the powerful online homework and course management system that engages students in learning the math. EWA includes new end-of-chapter exercises and pre-built assignments vetted by trusted subject matter experts along with robust course, section, assignment, and question settings and online testing to help instructors foster a deeper understanding of course concepts.
  • Author Website: The authors' website at www.wanermath.com has been evolving for more than a decade and provides instructors with a variety of resources -- including powerful online utilities that can be used in the classroom to do everything from graphing and evaluating functions to displaying and computing integrals and Riemann sums. In addition, instructors often use the online interactive tutorials as interactive teaching tools that invite class participation, and can use the randomized “game tutorials” for in-class quizzes that teach as they test. Online interactive text and exercises are also provided for a variety of topics not in the printed book.
  • Exercises: The end-of-section exercises have been carefully curated and ordered to move from straightforward basic exercises and exercises that are similar to examples in the text to more interesting and advanced ones, marked as “more advanced” for easy reference. There are also several much more difficult exercises, designated as “challenging.” We have also included, in virtually every section of every chapter, exercises ideal for the use of technology.
  • Innovative Pedagogy: Question-and-Answer Dialogues: End-of-Section FAQs, and Before We Go On: The text frequently uses informal question-and-answer dialogues that anticipate the kinds of questions that may occur to students, thereby guiding students through the development of new concepts. Most examples are followed by supplementary “Before We Go On” discussions, which may include a check on the answer, a discussion of the feasibility and significance of a solution, or an in-depth look at what the solution means.
  • Case Studies: Each chapter ends with a Case Study, an extended application that uses and illustrates the central ideas of the chapter, focusing on the development of mathematical models appropriate to the topics. Ideal for assignment as projects, these applications conclude with groups of exercises.
  • Marginal Technology Notes and End-of-Chapter Technology Guides: Brief marginal technology notes outline the use of graphing calculator, spreadsheet, and website technology in appropriate examples. When necessary, the reader is referred to more detailed discussion in the end-of-chapter Technology Guides, which provide detailed TI-83/84 Plus and Spreadsheet Guides at the end of each chapter. Instructors and students can easily use this material or not, as they prefer. Groups of exercises for which the use of technology is suggested or required appear throughout the exercise sets.
  • Examples: Many of the scenarios used in application examples and exercises are revisited several times throughout the book. In this way, students will find themselves using a variety of techniques to analyze the same application providing unifying threads that show the complex nature of real-life problems. Complete solutions are provided with every example. Most definition boxes also include quick, straightforward examples that students can use to solidify their understanding of each new concept.
