Unlike other calculus textbooks that tends to focus on developing the learner's math skills, Calculus for Business, Economics, and the Social and Life Sciences, Brief (ISBN 9780077292737) explains how limits, derivatives, functions, infinite series, and integrals are connected to non-math disciplines, making these concepts relatable to a wider spectrum of students. This textbook is ideal for mid-level college courses in the social sciences, economics, life sciences, and business majors. Laurence Hoffmann and Gerald Bradley successfully balanced principles and real-like practice. This student friendly textbook is widely available, even from rentals. It discusses linear equations and graphs, functions and graphs, limits and the derivative, graphing and optimization, integration, and trigonometric functions. It provides a review of fundamental algebra, tables of basic geometric formulas, as well as integration formulas. Some of the special topics focused on are sequences, series, and summation notation, arithmetic and geometric sequences, and binomial theorem. Laurence Hoffmann and Gerald Bradley have more than 200 examples and specific problems for social science, life science, and business economics, helping students retain what they have learned and test their progress. Already on its 10th edition, Calculus for Business, Economics, and the Social and Life Sciences, Brief has been thoroughly revised. Most chapters have been reorganized and updated with end-of-chapter summaries. This edition also provides supplements to help both the teacher and the student. Instructors have access to an exclusive resource center, and students have access to worksheets. Lead author Laurence Hoffman is also the voice behind textbooks such as Selected Material From Calculus for Business, Economics, and the Social and Life Sciences, Applied Finite Mathematics, and Brief Calculus With Applications.
