Overview

Calculus and Its Applications builds intuition with key concepts before presenting analytical material, using a strategic and distinctive topic organization to make learning calculus more accessible. Significant applications introduced early on make the mathematics more digestible, and comprehensive exercise sets suit different types of courses. The 15th Edition introduces fresh insights from new co-author Edward Tavernetti of University of California - Davis. It improves and expands applications, updates example and exercise data, and provides new material on modeling with differential equations.
