Introductory Mathematical Analysis for Business, Economics, and the Life and Social Sciences, Books a la Carte Edition, 13th Edition

By Ernest F. Haeussler, Richard S. Paul, Richard J. Wood

Published by Pearson

Published Date: Jan 28, 2010


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.


Haeussler, Paul, and Wood establish a strong algebraic foundation that sets this text apart from other applied mathematics texts, paving the way for readers to solve real-world problems that use calculus. Emphasis on developing algebraic skills is extended to the exercises–including both drill problems and applications. The authors work through examples and explanations with a blend of rigor and accessibility. In addition, they have refined the flow, transitions, organization, and portioning of the content over many editions to optimize learning for readers. The table of contents covers a wide range of topics efficiently, enabling readers to gain a diverse understanding.
