Publisher Comments:

CALCULUS: APPLICATIONS AND TECHNOLOGY is a modern text that is guided by four basic principles: The Rule of Four, technology, the Way of Archimedes, and an exploratory teaching method. Where appropriate, each topic is presented graphically, numerically, algebraically, and verbally, helping students gain a richer, deeper understanding of the material. A pronounced emphasis in the text on technology, whether graphing calculators or computers, permits instructors to spend more time teaching concepts. Additionally, applications play a central role in the text and are woven into the development of the material. More than 500 referenced exercises and hundreds of data sets contained in the text make this text useful and practical for students. Most importantly, this text lets students investigate and explore calculus on their own, and discover concepts for themselves.

Book News Annotation:

Emphasizing practical applications, this textbook covers functions, modeling with least squares, limits and the derivative, curve sketching and optimization, integration, functions of several variables, the trigonometric functions, Taylor polynomials, probability, differential equations, and related topics. The various topics are presented graphically, numerically, algebraically, and verbally. A companion CD contains about 60 interactive illustrations, an Excel manual and graphing calculator, and supplementary materials. Tomastik teaches at the University of Connecticut.
