This text for the one- or two-semester applied or business calculus course uses intriguing real-world applications to engage students' interest and show them the practical side of calculus. The book's many applications are related to finance, business, and such general-interest topics as learning curves in airplane production, the age of the Dead Sea Scrolls, Apple and Oracle stock prices, the distance traveled by sports cars, lives saved by seat belts, and the cost of a congressional victory. The Seventh Edition maintains the hallmark features that have made APPLIED CALCULUS so popular: contemporary and interesting applications (including many that are new or updated); careful and effective use of technology, including graphing calculator and spreadsheet coverage; constant pedagogical reinforcement through section summaries, chapter summaries, annotated examples, and extra practice problems; Just-in-Time algebra review material; and a variety of exercises and assignment options including Applied Exercises, Conceptual Exercises, and Explorations and Excursions. This edition also includes new content and features to help students get up to speed-and succeed-in the course, including a Diagnostic Test, an Algebra Review appendix, marginal notes that make connections with previous or future discussions, new learning prompts to direct students to examples or to the Algebra Review, and more.

Applied Calculus, Volume 1 provides information pertinent to the fundamental principles of the calculus to problems that occur in Science and Technology. This book illustrates the use of the calculus to determine the motion of different systems, to find the areas and volumes of certain figures, and to determine the turning points on a curve. Organized into four chapters, this volume begins with an overview of the idea of the slope or gradient of a curve to derive further information from the distance-time graph. This text then examines the notation of the calculus to derive the equations of motion for a particle moving in a straight line with uniform acceleration. Other chapters consider the equation of the tangent of the curve. This book discusses as well the importance of an interval along the curve. The final chapter deals with the maximum and the minimum point on a curve. This book is a valuable resource for students.
