About The Solution

Overview

New from James Stewart and Daniel Clegg, BRIEF APPLIED CALCULUS takes an intuitive, less formal approach to calculus without sacrificing the mathematical integrity. Featuring a wide range of applications designed to motivate students with a variety of interests, clear examples detailing important mathematical processes, and a vast collection of exercises appropriate for students with disparate skill sets, this first edition is perfect for students who need to learn how to apply calculus concepts rather than replicate the formal proofs behind the techniques. Early coverage of exponential and logarithmic functions allows for the inclusion of many interesting applications throughout the text. Available with a range of supplements including Enhanced WebAssign®, BRIEF APPLIED CALCULUS makes calculus approachable so any student can understand the concepts and be successful in the course.


Additional Product Information

Features/Benefits

  • Stewart/Clegg's writing style speaks clearly and directly to students, guiding them through key ideas, theorems, and problem-solving steps, and encouraging them to think as they read and learn calculus.
  • Prepare Yourself exercises are designed to check students' prerequisite skills before they attempt the core exercise set. These exercises acknowledge the variety of math abilities, and show students what they need to work on before they move forward.
  • Challenge Yourself exercises are more difficult problems intended to elicit students' deeper understanding of key concepts. These exercises are designed to be assigned by instructors who wish to aim at a higher level and keep their more advanced students interested.
  • Projects are included throughout to motivate students and help them see the relation of calculus to real life and their intended fields of study. They can be worked in class, assigned as group projects, or given as extra credit.
  • Tools for Enriching Calculus for Applied Calculus—an online, interactive resource that allows applied calculus students to work with animations to deepen their understanding of key concepts by helping them visualize the concepts they are learning.
  • Exclusively from Cengage Learning, Enhanced WebAssign® offers an extensive online program for Stewart/Clegg's Brief Applied Calculus to encourage the practice that's so critical for concept mastery.
