Single Variable Calculus Plus MyLab Math -- Access Card Package

By William L. Briggs, Lyle Cochran

Published Date: Jun 10, 2010


This package consists of the textbook plus an access kit for MyMathLab/MyStatLab.


Drawing on their decades of teaching experience, William Briggs and Lyle Cochran have created a calculus text that carries the teacher’s voice beyond the classroom. That voice–evident in the narrative, the figures, and the questions interspersed in the narrative–is a master teacher leading readers to deeper levels of understanding. The authors appeal to readers’ geometric intuition to introduce fundamental concepts and lay the foundation for the more rigorous development that follows. Comprehensive exercise sets have received praise for their creativity, quality, and scope.


To further support student learning, the ebook for the text features Interactive Figures that can be manipulated to shed light on difficult-to-convey concepts.


MyMathLab provides a wide range of homework, tutorial, and assessment tools that make it easy to manage your course online.
