For one-quarter or one/two-semester, freshman/sophomore-level courses in Elements of Calculus, Elementary Calculus, Calculus for Business, and Calculus for Biology.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.

Designed for students majoring in business, economics, or life sciences, this mathematically correct and student-friendly introduction to applied calculus begins with an optional library of elementary functions, presents the basics of differential and integral calculus, and then provides self-contained explorations of multivariable calculus, differential equations, Taylor polynomials and infinite series, probability and calculus, and trigonometry. The emphasis throughout is on computational skills, ideas, and problem solving, and a great variety of graded exercises and worked examples gives students extensive practice with real-world applications.From the Back Cover:
Barnett/Ziegler/Byleen, Applied Calculus, 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 Calculus succeeds at preparing students to deal with calculus topics when they encounter them outside the mathematics classroom.
