Thomas Calculus Media Upgrade, Eleventh Edition,responds to the needs of todays readers by developing their conceptual understanding while strengthening their skills in algebra and trigonometry,two areas of knowledge vital to the mastery of calculus. This book offers a full range of exercises, a precise and conceptual presentation, and a new media package designed specifically to meet the needs of todays readers. The exercises gradually increase in difficulty, helping readers learn to generalize and apply the concepts. The refined table of contents introduces the exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions in Chapter 7 of the text.KEY TOPICS: Limits and Derivatives,…
