Designed specifically for biology and life/social sciences majors, this applied calculus program motivates students while fostering understanding and mastery. The authors emphasize integrated and engaging applications that show students the real-world relevance of topics and concepts. Several pedagogical features--from algebra review to study tips--provide extra guidance and practice.Applied Calculus for the Life and Social Sciences features current, relevant examples drawn from government sources, industry, recent events, and other disciplines that appeal to diverse interests. In addition, the program offers a strong support package--including CL MATHSpace Instructor/Student websites and course management tools, instructional DVDs, and solutions manuals--that allows students to review the material independently and retain key concepts.
