# Calculus for Business, Economics, Life Sciences and Social Sciences, Books a la Carte Edition, 12th Edition

Published Date: Apr 16, 2010

## Description

This edition features the exact same content as the traditional text in a convenient, three-hole- punched, loose-leaf version. Books à la Carte also offer a great value–this format costs significantly less than a new textbook.

This accessible text is designed to help readers help themselves to excel. The content is organized into two parts: (1) A Library of Elementary Functions (Chapters 1—2) and (2) Calculus (Chapters 3—9). The book’s overall approach, refined by the authors’ experience with large sections of college freshmen, addresses the challenges of teaching and learning when readers’ prerequisite knowledge varies greatly. Reader-friendly features such as Matched Problems, Explore & Discuss questions, and Conceptual Insights, together with the motivating and ample applications, make this text a popular choice for today’s students and instructors.
