Intended for a two-semester applied calculus course or a two-term course of finite mathematics and applied calculus, Mathematical Applications, 7/e, presents concepts and skills in an approachable way for students of varying abilities and interests. Applications cover diverse topics that are important to students in the management, life, and social sciences.

  • New! A greater variety of exercises include more critical-thinking questions, challenging new Examples, and Checkpoint Exercises. In addition to enhanced variety, the improved grading of drill and application exercises offers appropriate problems for students of all abilities and skill levels.
  • New! Numerous data-driven examples and exercises have been updated throughout the text and the number of modeling problems has increased.
  • New! More graphical interpretations have been added to the exposition, especially during calculus discussions.
  • New! Enhanced optional technology coverage includes the addition of Excel information, as necessary, and expanded discussion of calculator capabilities to clarify presentation of algebraic topics.
  • New! New margin labels and example labels have been added to help readers quickly identify where concepts are presented and when new topics are introduced.
  • Chapter Warm Ups appear at the beginning of each chapter, with the exception of Chapter 0, allowing instructors and students to easily assess whether the student is prepared to begin the new material or needs to review prerequisite concepts before continuing.
  • Check Points pose questions and problems that allow students to check their own understanding of the skills and concepts under discussion before proceeding. Solutions are conveniently located before the section exercises.
  • Application Previews begin each section and establish the context and direction for the concepts to be presented. They are revisited in complete worked-out examples that appear later in the lesson.
  • Application contexts are clearly labeled and identified, enabling instructors to tailor their assignments to their students' majors. More than 2,000 of the 5,500 exercises in the book are applied problems, and most chapters include a section or sections devoted exclusively to applications of the mathematical topics presented in the chapter.

About the Author:

A professor at the University of South Carolina, Ron Harshbarger has worked with Jim Reynolds on MATHEMATICAL APPLICATIONS since the book's inception. Like his co-author, he has taught for over 20 years, at all levels of undergraduate mathematics.

Review:

"The strength is the depth of attention to various finance scenarios . . . There is a rich selection of topics which allows for instructors to personalize the course based on their students' interests. This material is unfamiliar to some instructors. As such, another strength of the text is that the explanations are so good that instructors can learn the material themselves from reading the textbook." "I really like the approach this textbook takes to providing solid college-level mathematics topics grounded in authentic and meaningful applications."

"A good book that delivers the mathematics the students need to be prepared for a business degree."
