Overview

Finite Mathematics with Calculus is designed for use in a two-term or three-quarter survey course in finite mathematics and single-variable calculus primarily taken by students majoring in business,economics,technological sciences,and the life and social sciences. The primary goal of this text is to provide a survey of the essential quantitative ideas and mathematical techniques used in decision making in a diversity of disciplines. This new edition is an extensive revision based on numerous user and reviewer suggestions. However,it still retains the straightforward style,intuitive approach and applications orientation of the previous edition. The flexible organization and rich selection of topics make the book easy to adapt to a wide variety of syllabi. The text is applications-oriented. Each new concept is applied to myriad practical situations. The techniques and strategies needed to solve applied problems are stressed. The applications are drawn from a number of disciplines and are identified for reference.
