This is a classic mid to high-level applications-oriented presentation of calculus suitable for a one-semester course for business, economics, allied health, and life and social science majors. It presents new material on the range of functions, logarithmic differentiation, and Newton's method. Berkey's trademark split strategy/solution format teaches calculus using extensive worked examples and extensive graded exercise sets. Features: * Provides useful mathematical models for interesting phenomena such as the spread of pollution and disease, the growth and optimal harvesting of biological populations, and the behavior of financial instruments and markets. * Teaches students how to use calculus to determine the rates of change among variables of interest, and to measure the difference between functions, usually on finite intervals - essential mathematical skills for students studying many different fields. * Extensive worked examples make use of a split strategy/solution format that shows students how the mathematical thinking progresses with the actual steps of a problem solution. * Over 400 illustrations and figures assist students in the visualization of mathematical ideas. * Over 2,200 exercises, 550 New to this edition: * Over 80 new applications from the biological sciences provide interesting settings for applying relevant mathematics - population growth for plants, animals, humans: forestry, ecology, epidemics amd oceanogrphay. * Practice Problems with worked solutions now appear at the end of every section, allowing students to test their understanding of basic concepts before working the exercises. * New Preface to the Students describes what mathematical modeling is and how it is used to interpret applied problems in mathematical terms. * New math topics include oblique asymtotes (2.4), symmetry and even/odd functions (3.5), mathematical modeling (4.2, 4.4, 4.6), approximation and differentials (3.10, 6.5) and relative and percentage errors (6.5).
