About the Author:

By the time I started writing the first of what turned out to be a series of textbooks in mathematics for students in the managerial, life, and social sciences, I had quite a few years of experience teaching mathematics to non-mathematics majors. One of the most important lessons I learned from my early experience teaching these courses is that many of the students come into these courses with some degree of apprehension. This awareness led to the intuitive approach I have adopted in all of my texts. As you will see, I try to introduce each abstract mathematical concept through an example drawn from a common real life experience. Once the idea has been conveyed, I then proceed to make it precise, thereby assuring that no mathematical rigor is lost in this intuitive treatment of the subject. Another lesson I learned from my students, is that they have a much greater appreciation of the material if the applications are drawn from their fields of interest and from situations that occur in the real world. This is one reason you will see so many exercises in my texts that are modeled from data gathered from newspapers, magazines, journals, and other media. Whether it be the ups and downs of the stock market, the growth of HMOs in the U.S., the solvency of the social security system, the budget deficit, the aids epidemic, or the growth of the internet, I weave topics of current interest into my examples and exercises, to keep the book relevant to all of my readers.

Review:

"Tan's book is an excellent choice for a calculus course aimed at a non-science audience. The main strengths of the text are its clear, step-by-step presentation, emphasis on problems and applications, methodical review of algebra and other precalculus material, and a rich supply of problems."

"I've like using Tan for the following reason: It doesn't get in the way! The book allows me to teach the course the way I want to."

"Tan's clarity and conciseness make the text easier for students to follow. The clean presentation of examples and showing small algebra steps seem well suited for our students."

"Tan makes the material easy for students to learn without simplifying the content or lowering the level. Even students with somewhat weak algebra skills manage to learn the calculus and simultaneously sharpen their algebra skills."

"The variety of exercises is also very good. They expose students to most of the classic computational problems they will run into, and the application problems run the gamut of uses of calculus in different fields."
