For two-term, or condensed one-term, freshman/sophomore-level courses in Finite Math and calculus. This mathematically correct, accessible, and student friendly text prepares students for the math they will encounter as they matriculate through a wide range of disciplines. The text's optional graphing calculator material is presented thoughtfully and makes Barnett ideal in course employing the graphing calculator. The emphasis throughout is on computational skills, ideas, and problem solving-rather than mathematical theory. Most derivations and proofs are omitted except where their inclusion adds significant insight into a particular concept. General concepts and results are usually presented only after particular cases have been discussed.

The Sixth Edition of this classic features the most extensive calculus coverage of all books in this market, enhanced by relevant topics from finance, linear algebra, linear programming, and probability that are useful to students in a wide variety of disciplines. The authors wrote this text for student comprehension--with great care placed on the mathematically correct and accessible presentation. Other highlights include a rich variety of applications, integration of graphing calculators, emphasis on computation skills, ideas and problem solving rather than mathematical theory.From the Back Cover:
Barnett/Ziegler/Byleen, Applied Mathematics, eighth edition provides comprehensive coverage of the topics essential to the mathematical development of students majoring in business, economics, social sciences, or life sciences. The emphasis throughout is on computational skills, ideas, and problem solving—rather than on mathematical theory. Derivations and proofs are included only when necessary.
The Barnett texts are known for their varied applications and thorough exercise sets. The eighth edition continues this high standard. The text is mathematically correct, accessible, and student-friendly. Applied Mathematics succeeds at preparing students to deal with calculus topics when they encounter them outside the mathematics classroom.
