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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
I think it is a great idea that will not only benefit the students but also the planet. The product seems organized, well thought out and a giant step forward from the current way students access their readings. I feel that this product will not only help to keep me organized but also help to improve my grades.

A tip-of-my-hat to the Write Experience team!

"I believe this [Integrative Exercises] is both an innovative and a great idea by Cengage for this particular course."
