Haeussler, Paul and Wood establish a strong algebraic foundation that sets this text apart from other applied mathematics texts, paving the way for students to solve real-world problems that use calculus. Emphasis on developing algebraic skills is extended to the exercises – including drill problems and applications. The authors work through examples and explanations with a blend of rigour and accessibility. They have also refined the flow, transitions, organisation and portioning of the content over many editions to optimise manageability for teachers and learning for students. The table of contents covers a wide range of topics efficiently, enabling instructors to tailor their courses to meet student needs.

Pedagogy and hallmark features
  • Applications: An abundance and variety of applications for the intended audience appear throughout the book so that students frequently see how the mathematics they are learning can be used. These applications cover such diverse areas as business, economics, biology, medicine, sociology, psychology, ecology, statistics, earth science and archaeology. Many of these applications are drawn from literature and are documented by references, sometimes from the Internet. In some, the background and context are given to stimulate interest. However, the text is self-contained, in the sense that it assumes no prior exposure to the concepts on which the applications are based.
  • Now Work Problem N: Throughout the text, we have retained the popular Now Work Problem N feature. The idea is that after a worked example, students are directed to an end-of-section problem (labelled with a coloured exercise number) that reinforces the ideas of the worked example. This gives students an opportunity to practise what they have just learned. Because the majority of these keyed exercises are odd-numbered, students can immediately check their answer in the back of the book to assess their level of understanding. The complete solutions to the odd-numbered exercises can be found in the Student Solutions Manual.
  • Cautions: Cautionary warnings are presented in very much the same way an instructor would warn students in class of commonly made errors. These appear in the margin, along with other explanatory notes and emphases.
  • Definitions, key concepts, and important rules and formulas: These are clearly stated and displayed as a way to make the navigation of the book that much easier for the student.
  • Review material: Each chapter has a review section that contains a list of important terms and symbols, a chapter summary, and numerous review problems. Key examples are also referenced along with each group of important terms and symbols.
Note: This title is also available with Pearson MyLab Math. MyLab Math is an online homework, tutorial and assessment product designed to personalise learning and improve results. Within its structured environment, students practice what they learn, test their understanding, and pursue a personalised study plan that helps them better absorb course material and understand difficult concepts.
Students: If MyLab Math is a recommended or mandatory component of the course, ask your instructor for the correct ISBN and course ID. MyLab Math should be purchased only when required by an instructor.
Instructors: Contact your Pearson representative for more information.
