Calculus hasn't changed, but your students have. Many of today's students have seen calculus before at the high school level. However, professors report nationwide that students come into their calculus courses with weak backgrounds in algebra and trigonometry, two areas of knowledge vital to the mastery of calculus. Thomas' Calculus, Media Upgrade, Eleventh Edition responds to the needs of today's students by developing their conceptual understanding while maintaining a rigor appropriate to the calculus course. For today's student on the go, this portable version of Thomas' Calculus is three-hole punched so students can take only what they need to class, incorporate their own notes, and save money! Each Books a la Carte text arrives with a laminated study card, perfect for students to use when preparing for exams, plus access to MyMathLab. Thomas' Calculus, Media Upgrade, Eleventh Edition is now available with an enhanced MyMathLab(TM) course-the ultimate homework, tutorial and study solution for today's students. The enhanced MyMathLab course includes a rich and flexible set of course materials and features innovative Java(TM) Applets, Group Projects, and new MathXL(R) exercises. This text is also available with WebAssign(R) and WeBWorK(R).

"Thomas' Calculus Media Upgrade, Eleventh Edition, "responds to the needs of today's readers by developing their conceptual understanding while strengthening their skills in algebra and trigonometry, two areas of knowledge vital to the mastery of calculus. This book offers a full range of exercises, a precise and conceptual presentation, and a new media package designed specifically to meet the needs of today's readers. The exercises gradually increase in difficulty, helping readers learn to generalize and apply the concepts. The refined table of contents introduces the exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions in Chapter 7 of the text. KEY TOPICS: Limits and Derivatives, Differentiation, Applications of Derivatives, Integration, Applications of Definite Integrals, Transcendental Functions, Techniques of Integration, Further Applications of Integration, Conic Sections and Polar Coordinates, Infinite Sequences and Series, Vectors and the Geometry of Space, Vector-Valued Functions and Motion in Space, Partial Derivatives, Multiple Integrals, Integration in Vector Fields. MARKET: For all readers interested in Calculus.About the Author:
"Terry and Gerry Audesirk" grew up in New Jersey, where they met as undergraduates. After marrying in 1970, they moved to California, where Terry earned her doctorate in marine ecology at the University of Southern California and Gerry earned his doctorate in neurobiology at the California Institute of Technology. As postdoctoral students at the University of Washington's marine laboratories, they worked together on the neural bases of behavior, using a marine mollusk as a model system. Terry and Gerry are now professors of biology at the University of Colorado at Denver, where they have taught introductory biology and neurobiology since 1982. In their research lab, funded by the National Institutes of Health, they investigate the mechanisms by which neurons are harmed by low levels of environmental pollutants. Terry and Gerry share a deep appreciation of nature and of the outdoors. They enjoy hiking in the Rockies, running near their home in the foothills west of Denver, and attempting to garden at 7000 feet in the presence of hungry deer and elk. They are long-time members of many conservation organizations. Their daughter, Heather, has added another focus to their lives. "Bruce E. Byers," a midwesterner transplanted to the hills of western Massachusetts, is a professor in the biology department at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. He's been a member of the faculty at UMass (where he also completed his doctoral degree) since 1993. Bruce teaches introductory biology courses for both nonmajors and majors; he also teaches courses in ornithology and animal behavior. A lifelong fascination with birds ultimately led Bruce to scientific exploration of avian biology. His currentresearch focuses on the behavioral ecology of birds, especially on the function and evolution of the vocal signals that birds use to communicate. The pursuit of vocalizations often takes Bruce outdoors, where he can be found before dawn, tape recorder in hand, awaiting the first songs of a new day.
