Synopses & Reviews
Everything a student needs to succeed in one place. Student Study-Pack contains:
Student Solutions Manual
Fully worked solutions to odd-numbered exercises
CD Lecture Videos
A comprehensive set of videos, tied to the textbook, in which examples are worked out by an instructor. The videos provide excellent support for students who require additional assistance, for distance learning and self-paced programs, or for students who missed class.
Pearson Tutor Center
Tutors provide one-on-one tutoring for any problem with an answer at the back of the book. Students access the Tutor Center via toll-free phone, fax, or e-mail.
Visual Calculus
Built from the ground up by David Schneider (University of Maryland), Visual Calculus enhances the visualizations and therefore the understanding of the ideas behind the calculus. With this software students can: analyze a function and its derivatives, examine solutions of differential equations, graph functions, calculate definite integrals, evaluate finite and infinite sums, graph Taylor approximations, plot cosine and sine functions and much more. Find Visual Calculus in MyMathLab and the CD Lecture Videos.
Synopsis
Goldstein’s Brief Calculus and Its Applications, Twelfth Edition is a comprehensive print and online program for readers interested in business, economics, life science, or social sciences. Without sacrificing mathematical integrity, the book clearly presents the concepts with a large quantity of exceptional, in-depth exercises.
