Brief Applied Calculus, Hybrid (with Enhanced Webassign with eBook Loe Printed Access Card for One-Term Math and Science) (Cengage Learning 's New Hybrid Editions!)by James Stewart
Synopses & Reviews
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.
About the Author
James Stewart received his M.S. from Stanford University and his Ph.D. from the University of Toronto. He did research at the University of London and was influenced by the famous mathematician George Polya at Stanford University. Stewart is currently Professor of Mathematics at McMaster University, and his research field is harmonic analysis. Stewart is the author of a best-selling calculus textbook series published by Cengage Learning, including CALCULUS, CALCULUS: EARLY TRANSCENDENTALS, and CALCULUS: CONCEPTS AND CONTEXTS, as well as a series of precalculus texts. Daniel Clegg received his B.A. in Mathematics from California State University, Fullerton and his M.A. in Mathematics from UCLA. He is currently Associate Professor of Mathematics at Palomar College near San Diego, California. He has assisted James Stewart with various aspects of his calculus texts for more than ten years and is a coauthor of the textbook "Mathematical Excursions" published by Cengage Learning-Brooks/Cole.
