This is a textbook for an intermediate level course in microeconomics that uses calculus throughout. Most of the competition either uses no calculus or relegates the math to footnotes and appendices. The text also focuses on theory rather than empirical data. To motivate the analysis, the authors include references to real events and firms, with no distracting separate boxes.

Intermediate Microeconomics: A Tool-Building Approach is a clear and concise, calculus-based exposition of current microeconomic theory essential for students pursuing degrees in Economics or Business. This beautifully-presented and accessible text covers all the essential topics that are typically required at the intermediate level, from consumer and producer theory to market structure (perfect competition, monopoly and oligopoly). Topics covered include risk, game theory, general equilibrium and externalities, asymmetric information, and public goods. Using numerical examples as well as sophisticated and carefully designed exercises, the book aims to teach microeconomic theory via a process of learning-by-doing. When there is a skill to be acquired, a list of steps outlining the procedure is provided, followed by an example to illustrate how this procedure is carried out. Once the procedure has been learned, students will be able to solve similar problems and be well on their way to mastering the skills needed for future study. Intermediate Microeconomics presents a tremendous amount of material in a concise way, without sacrificing rigor, clarity or exposition. Through use of this text, students will acquire both the analytical toolkit and theoretical foundations necessary in order to take upper-level courses in industrial organization, international trade, public finance and other field courses.

Presenting microeconomic theory as a way of looking at the world, MICROECONOMICS: AN INTUITIVE APPROACH WITH CALCULUS builds on the basic economic foundation of individual behavior. Each chapter is divided into two sections. The A sections introduce concepts using intuition, a conversational writing style, everyday examples, and graphs. The B sections cover the same concepts with precise, accessible mathematical analyses that pre-suppose one semester of single-variable calculus. The package offers unprecedented flexibility in terms of topical coverage and graphical analysis: each copy includes access to online LiveGraphs -- a suite of interactive, animated graphs that allows students to view dimensional graphs and functions illustrated in the book, as well as some additional graphs that are not in the printed text. Students can play and replay the LiveGraphs while listening to a brief explanation of the graphs.
