Description:

This text's integrated applications and models, along with graphical and numerical procedures, motivate and explain mathematical techniques. Applied exercises are drawn from a variety of fields, including engineering and life sciences. Numerical methods are covered early and woven throughout the text. The author uses a spiraling approach to develop more abstract concepts so students aren't overwhelmed with definitions and theorems at first.
