Publisher Comments:

Reflecting Cengage Learning's commitment to offering value for students, these new hybrid versions feature the instructional presentation found in the full text while delivering all of end-of-section exercises online in Enhanced WebAssign. Access to Enhanced WebAssign includes the new media-rich Cengage YouBook, giving you an interactive learning experience with the convenience of a text that is both brief and affordable. New from James Stewart and Dan Clegg, BRIEF APPLIED CALCULUS, HYBRID takes an intuitive, less formal approach to calculus without sacrificing the mathematical integrity. Featuring a wide range of applications designed to motivate students with a variety of interests, clear examples detailing important mathematical processes, and a vast collection of exercises appropriate for students with disparate skill sets, this first edition is perfect for students who need to learn how to apply calculus concepts rather than replicate the formal proofs behind the techniques. Early coverage of exponential and logarithmic functions allows for the inclusion of many interesting applications throughout the text. Available with a range of supplements including Enhanced WebAssign, BRIEF APPLIED CALCULUS, HYBRID makes calculus approachable so any student can understand the concepts and be successful in the course.
