About

Overview

Well known for accuracy, Soo Tan's APPLIED CALCULUS FOR THE MANAGERIAL, LIFE, AND SOCIAL SCIENCES, Ninth Edition balances applications, pedagogy, and technology to provide students the context they need to stay motivated in the course and interested in the material. Accessible for majors and non-majors alike, the text uses an intuitive approach that introduces abstract concepts through examples drawn from common, real-life experiences to which students can relate. It also draws applications from readers' fields of interest. In addition, insightful Portfolios highlight the careers of real people and discuss how they incorporate math into their daily professional activities. Numerous exercises ensure that students have a solid understanding of concepts before advancing to the next topic. Algebra review notes, keyed to the review chapter Preliminaries, appear where and when students need them. The text's exciting array of supplements, including Enhanced WebAssign®, equips students with extensive learning support to help them make the most of their study time. Available with InfoTrac® Student Collections http://gocengage.com/infotrac.

Features and Benefits

  • Motivating real-world applications: With more than 100 new and updated applications, Tan's exercises build student interest and illustrate the real-world relevance of mathematics.
  • Algebra review when it's needed: A Diagnostic Test begins the Preliminaries chapter, offering students a chance to see which algebra skills they need to review before beginning regular coursework. Additionally, algebra review notes, keyed to the review chapter, appear where and when students need them.
  • Study Tabs that work: Convenient color-coded Study Tabs, similar to Post-It® notes, make it easy for students to flag pages that they want to revisit later.
  • Solution videos and tutorials: Available on CourseMate, the book's website, these videos directly correspond to exercises found in the text and provide additional instruction, including a Graphing Calculator Tutorial.
  • Math for life: Real-world applications in the areas of business, economics, behavioral, life, physical, and social sciences bring relevance to mathematical results and make chapter concepts come to life for students. In addition, Portfolio interviews show how professionals use mathematics in their daily activities. Applied examples are clearly marked with photo icons that link them to the list of applications.
  • Flexibility: Optional coverage offers instructors different ways to tailor technology to their course needs. For example, "Using Technology" sections show how graphing utilities can facilitate the analysis and solution of complicated problems. "Exploring with Technology" boxes throughout the text offer students the opportunity to use technology to further explore mathematical concepts. And, "Modeling with Data" exercises, featured in many of the "Using Technology" subsections, show students how some of the functions found in the exercises are constructed.
  • Complete exercise sets: Section exercise sets include "Concept" questions, and chapter reviews contain fill-in-the-blank "Concept Review" questions. Additional routine and true-false questions have been added as well.
  • Thorough: Detailed illustrations support examples and exercises, ensuring student understanding. "Explore and Discuss" questions take concepts a step further and spark student discussion. Other pedagogical tools that help students master the material include "Self-Check" exercises in every section, "Notes" to clarify mathematical ideas, and "Cautions" that highlight common pitfalls.

Author Bio

Soo T. Tan

Soo T. Tan has published numerous papers in Optimal Control Theory and Numerical Analysis. He received his S.B. degree from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, his M.S. degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and his Ph.D. from the University of California at Los Angeles. "One of the most important lessons I learned from my early experience teaching these courses is that many of the students come into these courses with some degree of apprehension. This awareness led to the intuitive approach I have adopted in all of my texts."
