This text uses intriguing real-world applications to engage readers' interest and show them the practical side of calculus. The book's many applications are related to finance, business, and such general-interest topics as the growing population of Africa, the composition of the Supreme Court, water shortage, the fastest pitch in baseball, and pollution and the depletion of natural resources. The Sixth Edition maintains the hallmark features that have made APPLIED CALCULUS, BRIEF so popular: contemporary and interesting applications; careful and effective use of technology, including graphing calculator and spreadsheet coverage; constant pedagogical reinforcement through section summaries, chapter summaries, annotated examples, and extra practice problems; Just-in-Time algebra review material; and a variety of exercises that allow readers to practice and hone their problem-solving skills.
