ABOUT THE BOOK

Publish Date: Feb 2013, eBook Last Updated: Oct. 2021
Applied Calculus is the perfect book for students who need to satisfy a one-semester calculus requirement for their degree in business or one of the social sciences. Students will leave class with confidence in their skills and a greater understanding of how calculus is used to model real-world situations.

FEATURES OF THE BOOK

Getting Ready for Class

We want to encourage students to read the book; we place four questions at the end of every section, under the heading Getting Ready for Class, that students can answer from the reading. Even a minimal attempt to answer these questions enhances the students' in-class experience. Several Instructors using our books use these questions as a student's ticket to class. They collect the student answers as students come in the door.

Paying Attention to Instructions

We try to anticipate problems students have and build features into the text that address these problems. For example, we know students don't always pay attention to instructions when doing their homework, which gets them into trouble on tests and quizzes. So, we build problems into the text, under the heading Paying Attention to Instructions, that require that they read instructions.

Getting Ready for the Next Section

These problems appear at the end of every problem set. They are the exact problems students will see when they read through the next section of the text. Students who consistently work these problems will be much more prepared for class than students who don't work these problems.

Emphasis on Modeling

Modeling Examples and Problems are labeled with a puzzle icon and are found throughout the text. Click on each image for a larger view.

Advice for Students taking a math class: Try to live the class. Think about the material all the time.

Advice for new teachers: Think deeply about every topic. Ask yourself why you are doing what you are doing in each topic. Ask yourself why should we add two rational expressions? Why should we factor a polynomial? Why should we multiply two polynomials together? Tell your students what these subjects are and why they are important.
