9781133960195: Applied Calculus for the Managerial, Life, and Social Sciences

Reflecting Cengage Learning's commitment to offering flexible teaching solutions and value for students and instructors, this new hybrid edition features the instructional presentation found in the printed text while delivering end-of-section exercises online in Enhanced WebAssign. The result--a briefer printed text that engages students online! Soo Tan's APPLIED CALCULUS FOR THE MANAGERIAL, LIFE, AND SOCIAL SCIENCES, Ninth Edition balances applications, pedagogy, and technology to provide readers with the context they need to stay motivated and interested in the material. Accessible for majors and non-majors alike, the book uses an intuitive approach that introduces abstract concepts through examples drawn from common, real-life experiences and numerous fields of interest to which readers can relate. Insightful Portfolios highlight the careers of real people and discuss how they incorporate math into their daily professional activities. Numerous exercises ensure that readers have a solid understanding of concepts before advancing to the next topic. Algebra review notes, keyed to the review chapter Preliminaries, appear where and when readers need them.

About the Author:

Soo T. Tan has published numerous papers in Optimal Control Theory and Numerical Analysis. He received his S.B. degree from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, his M.S. degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and his Ph.D. from the University of California at Los Angeles. "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."
