## Overview

**NOTE: **Before purchasing, check with your instructor to ensure you **select the correct ISBN. **Several versions of Pearson's MyLab™ products exist for each title, and registrations are not transferable. To register for and use Pearson's MyLab products, you may also need a** Course ID,**which your instructor will provide.

**Used books, rentals, and purchases made outside of Pearson**

If purchasing or renting from companies other than Pearson, the access codes for Pearson's MyLab products may not be included, may be incorrect, or may be previously redeemed. Check with the seller before completing your purchase.

*For one- or two-semester courses in Calculus for students majoring in business, social sciences, and life sciences.*

*This package includes MyLab Math.*

**Intuition before Formality**

**Calculus & Its Applications** builds intuition with key concepts of calculus before the analytical material. For example, the authors explain the derivative geometrically before they present limits, and they introduce the definite integral intuitively via the notion of net change before they discuss Riemann sums. The strategic organization of topics makes it easy to adjust the level of theoretical material covered. The significant applications introduced early in the course serve to motivate students and make the mathematics more accessible. Another unique aspect of the text is its intuitive use of differential equations to model a variety of phenomena in Chapter 5, which addresses applications of exponential and logarithmic functions.

Time-tested, comprehensive exercise sets are flexible enough to align with each instructor’s needs, and new exercises and resources in MyLab™ Math help develop not only skills, but also conceptual understanding, visualization, and applications. The **14th Edition **features updated exercises, applications, and technology coverage, presenting calculus in an intuitive yet intellectually satisfying way.

**Personalize learning with MyLab Math**

MyLab™ Math is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results. Within its structured environment, students practice what they learn, test their understanding, and pursue a personalized study plan that helps them absorb course material and understand difficult concepts. In the new edition, MyLab Math has expanded to include a suite of new videos, Interactive Figures, exercises that require step-by-step solutions, conceptual questions, calculator support, and more.

NOTE: This package includes a MyLab Math access kit created specifically for Goldstein et al.*, Calculus & Its Applications 14/e.* This title-specific access kit provides access to the Goldstein et al.
