## Description

**Finite Mathematics and Calculus with Applications, Ninth Edition**, by Lial, Greenwell, and Ritchey, is our most applied text to date, making the math relevant and accessible for students of business, life science, and social sciences. Current applications, many using real data, are incorporated in numerous forms throughout the book, preparing students for success in their professional careers. With this edition, students will find new ways to get involved with the material, such as “Your Turn” exercises and “Apply It” vignettes that encourage active participation. The MyMathLab^{®} course for the text provides additional learning resources for students, such as video tutorials, algebra help, step-by-step examples, and graphing calculator help. The course also features many more assignable exercises than the previous edition.

Please note MyMathLab is not included with purchase of the CourseSmart eTextbook.
