COLLEGE ALGEBRA AND CALCULUS: AN APPLIED APPROACH, Second Edition provides a comprehensive resource for college algebra and applied calculus courses. The mathematical concepts and applications are consistently presented in the same tone and pedagogy to promote confidence and a smooth transition from one course to the next. The consolidation of content for two courses in a single text saves instructors time in their course--and saves students the cost of an extra textbook.
