This text is written for today's technology student, with an accessible, intuitive approach and an emphasis on applications of calculus to technology. The text's presentation of concepts is clear and concise, with examples worked in great detail, enhanced by marginal annotations, and supported with step-by-step procedures whenever possible. Another powerful enhancement is the use of a functional second color to help explain steps. Differential and integral calculus are introduced in the first five chapters, while more advanced topics, such as differential equations and LaPlace transforms, are covered in later chapters. This organization allows the text to be used in a variety of technology programs.
