Overview

Full of relevant and current real-world applications, Stefan Waner and Steven Costenoble's APPLIED CALCULUS, Fifth Edition helps your students relate to mathematics! Throughout the text is clearly delineated, thorough Microsoft® Excel® and Graphing Calculator instruction, optional so instructors can include any amount of technology instruction in their courses. Acclaimed for accuracy and readability, APPLIED CALCULUS, Fifth Edition connects with all types of teaching and learning styles. Resources like the accompanying website allow the text to support a range of course formats, from traditional lectures to strictly online courses.

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.

  • New real data exercises and examples based on topics of current interest like Facebook, Xbox, iPhones, and eBay to help students relate to the material.
  • Technology Notes have been enhanced to include step-by-step instructions and key strokes at point of use, to enable better integration of graphing calculators and spreadsheets.
  • New Supplementary Notes have been added, providing additional information for the student, further explanations or clarification of concepts, reminders of previously learned material or references for further study, and additional tips for using technology.
  • Expanded and reorganized exercise sets gradually increase in level to include more basic skills exercises to help students master the basic concepts.
  • New content on Functions in Models in Chapter one brings together topics like revenue, profit, demand, supply, and change of time that occur throughout the book.
  • New section on higher order derivatives with added material on concavity and acceleration.
  • Expanded list of optional sections available, including Taylor polynomials, chain rule for multivariate calculus, calculus applied to probability, and more!
  • Informal "FAQ" question-and-answer dialogues that anticipate the kinds of questions students might have appear at the end of each section. These often informal discussions guide the student through development of new concepts.
  • Website: An outstanding text-specific website (www.AppliedCalc.com) offers interactive tutorials, review exercises, and online utilities for a variety of tasks like graphing, regression, and matrix algebra. The site enhances interest, learning, and comprehension.
  • Communication and Reasoning Exercises for Writing and Discussion, designed to broaden the student's grasp of the mathematical concepts and develop modeling skills.
  • Five Elements of Mathematical Pedagogy: The book discusses many of the central concepts numerically, graphically, and algebraically. It also explores them verbally and interactively.
  • Real World Orientation: Making the material come alive for students, the book provides a great diversity, breadth, and abundance of examples and exercises based on real, referenced data from business, economics, the life sciences, and social sciences.
  • Clear technology instructions now appear at the end of each chapter as "Technology Guides." These easy to use color-coded guides include instructions for both Microsoft® Excel® and the TI-83/84 Graphing Calculator. Examples in the chapter with corresponding technology instructions are clearly indicated.
