Applied Calculus for the Managerial, Life, and Social Sciences (8TH 11  Old Edition)by Soo T. Tan
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Publisher Comments:Well known for accuracy, Soo Tan's APPLIED CALCULUS FOR THE MANAGERIAL, LIFE, AND SOCIAL SCIENCES, Eighth Edition balances applications, pedagogy, and technology to provide students the context they need to stay motivated in the course and interested in the material. Accessible for majors and nonmajors alike, the text uses an intuitive approach that introduces abstract concepts through examples drawn from common, reallife experiences to which students can relate. It also draws applications from readers' fields of interest. In addition, insightful Portfolios highlight the careers of real people and discuss how they incorporate math into their daily operations. Numerous exercisesincluding new Diagnostic Testsensure students have a solid understanding of concepts before advancing to the next topic. Algebra review notes, keyed to the review chapter Preliminaries, appear where students need them, when they need them. Bringing powerful resources to students' fingertips, the text's exciting array of supplements, including Enhanced Web Assign, equips students with extensive learning support to help them maximize their study time.
Synopsis:This text helps you succeed in applied calculus by using clear explanations, reallife examples, and uptodate technology. Reallife applicationssuch as satellite radio subscriptions, Google's revenue, job outsourcing, and the effects of smoking bansare drawn from the areas of business and the behavioral, life, and social sciences. Portfolio profiles give you a firsthand look at how realworld professionals use applied calculus in their work. You can also take advantage of extensive online support to enhance your learning, including video instruction and interactive tutorials that walk you step by step through examples and problems in the text.
About the AuthorSoo T. Tan has published numerous papers in Optimal Control Theory and Numerical Analysis. He received his S.B. degree from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, his M.S. degree from the University of WisconsinMadison, and his Ph.D. from the University of California at Los Angeles. "One of the most important lessons I learned from my early experience teaching these courses is that many of the students come into these courses with some degree of apprehension. This awareness led to the intuitive approach I have adopted in all of my texts."
