NEW—Features optional examples and exercises illustrating the use of regression techniques to analyze real data, including both graphing calculator and spreadsheet output. NEW—Contains more optional technology examples and exercises, especially those using real data. NEW—Closes chapters with two group activities, one of the two involving technology. NEW—Reorganizes appendices and adds explorediscuss elements to allow more formal coverage. FEATURES Prepares students to deal with the topics under discussion when they are encountered in other areas, such as subsequent Economics courses. Provides the essential mathematical tools needed to effectively pursue courses of study in Business and Economics, Life Sciences, or Social Sciences. Takes great care in ensuring that content is mathematically correct and accessible to students. Emphasizes the development of computational skills, ideas, and problem solving over the abstract details of mathematical theory.
Contains ExploreDiscuss boxes interspersed at appropriate places to encourage students to think about a relationship or process before a result is stated or to investigate additional consequences of a development in the text. Provides a library of elementary functions in Part I of the text and outlines basic algebraic operations in an appendix. Introduces limit concepts on an asneeded basis. Introduces the definite integral as a limit of a Riemann sums, following the more traditional development of integration and emphasizing the understanding of basic concepts. I.
