Stefan Waner and Steven Costenoble's APPLIED CALCULUS, THIRD EDITION is designed to address the considerable challenge of generating enthusiasm and developing mathematical sophistication in an audience that is often ill-prepared for and alienated by the traditional applied mathematics courses offered on many college campuses. The new edition retains its engaging conversational style and focus on real data and real world applications of mathematicsa strategy that has proven to be pedagogically successful. The wealth of applications, the highly effective integrated, yet optional, use of graphing calculators or spreadsheets, and the robust supplemental Web site that has received praise from around the world, are what make Waner/Costenoble's text an outstanding choice.
