Intended for a one-term or two-term course for undergraduate students majoring in economics, business, social or behavioral sciences, Brief Calculus for the Business, Social, and Life Sciences presents mathematics in a clear and accessible language that students can read and understand. The clear, easy-to-read, conversational writing style will have students feeling as though they are engaging in a one-on-one tutorial session.Rich in pedagogical features, this Third Edition opens each chapter and section with clearly defined learning objectives to help students focus on understanding the fundamental concepts that lie ahead. Within each chapter are flashbacks of selected examples from an earlier chapter that help to reinforce the necessary problem solving skills as well as introduce new topics employing familiar applications; engaging Section Projects to promote hands-on application of the newly learned problem solving techniques; and interactive Try It Yourself example problems that help students develop good study habits. Every chapter concludes with three components; a Section-by-Section Study Guide that reviews the theorems, definitions, and properties with the page number where these items were first introduced, as well as a review of the chapter learning objectives and additional exercises; a Chapter Practice Test for students to test their acquisition of the material; and a Chapter Project that uses real-world data to explore and extend the concepts discussed in the chapter.The clear and accessible writing style, numerous and varied engaging exercises, and proven pedagogical features make learning and understanding calculus achievable for students of a variety of disciplines.
