Overview

Motivate your students and foster their understanding and mastery with CALCULUS: AN APPLIED APPROACH. Designed for business, economics, or life/social sciences majors, this resource emphasizes integrated and engaging applications that show students the real-world relevance of topics and concepts. Applied problems drawn from government sources, industry, current events, and other disciplines provide well-rounded examples and appeal to students' diverse interests. Pedagogical features -- from algebra review to study tips -- provide extra guidance and practice. The tenth edition is supported by optional digital learning solutions including Enhanced WebAssign and MindTap® Math.

Ron Larson, The Pennsylvania State University, The Behrend College

Dr. Ron Larson is a professor of mathematics at The Pennsylvania State University, where he has taught since 1970. He received his Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Colorado and is considered the pioneer of using multimedia to enhance the learning of mathematics, having authored over 30 software titles since 1990. Dr. Larson conducts numerous seminars and in-service workshops for math educators around the country about using computer technology as an instructional tool and motivational aid. He is the recipient of the 2014 William Holmes McGuffey Longevity Award for CALCULUS: EARLY TRANSCENDENTAL FUNCTIONS, the 2014 Text and Academic Authors Association TEXTY Award for PRECALCULUS, the 2012 William Holmes McGuffey Longevity Award for CALCULUS: AN APPLIED APPROACH, and the 1996 Text and Academic Authors Association TEXTY Award for INTERACTIVE CALCULUS (a complete text on CD-ROM that was the first mainstream college textbook to be offered on the Internet). Dr. Larson authors numerous textbooks including the best-selling Calculus series published by Cengage Learning.

  • A wide variety of relevant examples--each of which is titled for easy reference--includes solutions presented graphically, analytically, and/or numerically to provide further insight into mathematical concepts. Examples that illustrate real-life situations are identified with an icon.
  • ENHANCED WEBASSIGN: CALCULUS: AN APPLIED APPROACH, BRIEF, 10th 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.
  • Every section begins with a list of objectives that highlights the learning outcomes of that section and provides instructors with a tool for lesson planning.
  • For instructors who wish to incorporate technology, optional Tech Tutor boxes provide guidance on using technology to ease lengthy calculations, present a graphical solution, or discuss where using technology can lead to misleading or wrong solutions. In addition, exercises requiring technology are identified with a graphing calculator icon.
  • A Summarize feature guides students in creating section-level concept summaries-- helping them process and organize key concepts while providing a valuable study tool.
  • How Do You See It? exercises ask students to draw conclusions about information presented visually. Requiring little or no calculation, these exercises check students’ conceptual understanding of key concepts.
  • The CalcChat.com website provides tutorial help and worked-out solutions to the odd-numbered exercises in the text.
