Publisher Comments:

Don't go to class without it! Utilizing lively, interactive software, INTERACTIVE CALCULUS WITH APPLICATIONS with accompanying CD-ROM demonstrates the relevance of applied calculus to your own life. This innovative workbook/CD-ROM package enables you to actively participate in the learning process and provides you with the tools you need to succeed. The workbook and software tools were designed to work together and each lab guides you in their discovery of concepts and explorations. The workbook supplies explanations, suggestions, and questions whereas the CD-ROM contains interactive tools that illustrate the basic concepts of calculus and some of its most useful applications.

Book News Annotation:

McDill (California Polytechnic State University) and Rash (Saint Joseph's University) encourage students to explore calculus with a workbook/CD-ROM package that features interactive activities. The CD-ROM contains 40 interactive "tools" that demonstrate basic concepts of calculus and some of its most useful applications in economics, finance, and other areas. The workbook, designed as a companion to the software, explains concepts, gives suggestions for using the tools on the CD-ROM, and provides 25 labs requiring the use of one or more tools.
