For one- or two-semester courses in Calculus for students majoring in business, social sciences, and life sciences. 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(TM) 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. Also available with MyLab Math MyLab(TM) 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: You are purchasing a standalone product; MyLab does not come packaged with this content.

Larson's COLLEGE ALGEBRA is known for delivering sound explanations and exercises of mathematical concepts to prepare students for further study in math. With the Tenth Edition, Larson continues to transform the way students learn by including more real-world applications, ongoing review, and technology. "How Do You See It?" exercises let students apply concepts, and "Summarize" features and "Checkpoint" problems reinforce understanding of the skills they need to prepare for tests.

For courses in College Algebra. Showing why math matters Gary Rockswold doesn't just mention real-world examples; he teaches mathematical concepts through those applications. For example, if we look at Facebook usage over time, what might that tell us about linear growth and predictions? In this way, students learn the concepts in the context of the world they know, which leads to better understanding and retention. From there, the author shows a connection between application, modeling, and visualization. Rockswold is known for presenting the concept of a function as a unifying theme, with an emphasis on the rule of four (verbal, graphical, numerical, and symbolic representations). The 6th Edition emphasizes conceptual understanding with new in-chapter features and assignment options, while at the same time providing tools to empower instructors to make their classroom more active through collaboration and group work. Also available with MyLab Math MyLab(TM) 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. The 6th Edition continues to expand the comprehensive auto-graded exercise options. The pre-existing exercises were carefully reviewed, vetted, and improved using aggregated student usage and performance data over time. In addition, MyLab Math includes new options to support conceptual learning, visualization, and student preparedness.

19. Combinatorics [2018]

Book
xxiv, 618 pages ; 27 cm.
Bijective proofs are some of the most elegant and powerful techniques in all of mathematics. Suitable for readers without prior background in algebra or combinatorics, the book presents an introduction to enumerative and algebraic combinatorics emphasizing bijective methods. The text develops mathematical tools, such as basic counting rules, recursions, inclusion-exclusion techniques, generating functions, bijective proofs, and linear-algebraic methods to solve enumeration problems. The tools are used to analyze combinatorial structures, words, permutations, subsets, functions, compositions, integer partitions, graphs, trees, lattice paths, multisets, rook placements, and set partitions. -- Provided by publisher.
