## Description

**Calculus and Its Applications, Thirteenth Edition** is a comprehensive, yet flexible, text for students majoring in business, economics, life science, or social sciences. The authors delve into greater mathematical depth than other texts while motivating students through relevant, up-to-date, applications drawn from students’ major fields of study. The authors motivate key ideas geometrically and intuitively, providing a solid foundation for the more abstract treatments that follow. Every chapter includes a large quantity of exceptional exercises—a hallmark of this text--that address skills, applications, concepts, and technology. The MyMathLab^{®} course for the text features thousands of assignable exercises, built-in support for gaps in basic skills, and an array of interactive figures designed to help students visualize key concepts.

The **Thirteenth Edition** includes updated applications, exercises, and technology coverage. The authors have also added more study tools, including a prerequisite skills diagnostic test and a greatly improved end-of-chapter summary, and made content improvements based on user reviews.
