The Second Edition of this engaging text for the two-semester applied calculus and finite mathematics course uses intriguing, real-world applications to capture the interest of business, economics, life, and social science majors. This practical approach to mathematics, along with the integration of graphing calculators and Excel spreadsheet explorations, exposes students to the tools they will encounter in future careers. A wealth of pedagogy includes the following distinctive features: detailed Worked-out Examples with Annotations help students through more challenging concepts; Practice Problems are offered to help students check their understanding of concepts presented in the examples; Section Summaries briefly restate essential formulas and key concepts; Chapter Summary with Hints and Suggestions unify chapter themes, give specific reminders, and reference problems in the review exercises suitable for a practice test; and Cumulative Review Exercises appear at the end of groups of chapters to reinforce previously learned concepts and skills. Graphing Calculator Examples and Exercises located throughout the text explore new topics, guide students through "messy" calculations, or show technology pitfalls. These may be omitted without disrupting the flow or cohesion of the text. Application Previews place mathematics in a real-world context and motivate students' interest in the material. Annotations beside many formulas and solution steps emphasize the importance of being able to "read mathematics" by restating much of the mathematics in words.

Geared toward business and social science majors in a two-semester finite mathematics and applied calculus course, this text equips students with the analytical tools and technological skills they will need in the workplace. Plain language and an easy-to-read style help stress conceptual understanding and reinforce key terms and concepts. At the same time, the incorporation of real-life applications, examples, and data help engage students—even those who have never enjoyed mathematics. Pedagogy throughout the text helps students analyze data from a variety of approaches, including numeric, algebraic, graphical, literal, and technological. A robust supplement package and exciting new technology program provide students with extensive learning and support, so that instructors can spend more time teaching. Make It Real projects ask students to collect and analyze data that often mirrors their own experiences. Students are able to better process this information and connect math to their own lives. Technology Tips are scattered throughout the text and help guide students through new techniques on the graphing calculator such as graphing a function, solving an equation, or finding the value of a function. Examples, Exercises, and Applications focus on the business or social science student and are based on engaging real-life data.
