### Description:

Intended for a two-term applied calculus or finite mathematics and applied calculus course, Mathematical Applications, 8/e, presents concepts and skills in an approachable way for students of varying abilities and interests. The Eighth Edition retains the features that have made this text a popular choice, including applications covering diverse topics that are important to students in the management, life, and social sciences. This edition broadens the represented applications by adding a number of environmental science applications. The use of modeling has also been expanded, with modeling problems now clearly labeled in the examples. New! Technology Notes have been separated into Calculator Notes and Spreadsheet Notes to provide more precise instruction for using calculators and Excel. Chapter Warm Ups appear at the beginning of each chapter to allow instructors and students an easy way to assess whether the student is prepared to begin the new material. Check Points ask questions and prose problems that help students check their understanding of skills and concepts before they proceed further into the chapter. Solutions appear before the section exercises. New! Application Previews begin each section and establish the context and direction for the concepts that will be covered. In this edition, these previews are revisited in completely worked-out examples later in the lesson. Applications contexts are clearly labeled so instructors can select the applications of interest to the students majoring in various disciplines. More than 2000 of the 5500 exercises in the book are applied problems, allowing students to learn practical applications of mathematical concepts.Members Receive:
