WebAssign is a flexible and fully customizable online instructional solution that puts powerful tools in the hands of teachers, enabling you to realize your teaching goals and instantly assess individual student performance to help students learn math, not just do online homework.

  • 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 website provides tutorial help and worked-out solutions to the odd-numbered exercises in the text.
