DESCRIPTION

For freshman/sophomore, 2 semester/2-3 quarter courses covering finite mathematics and/or calculus for students in business, economics, social sciences, or life sciences.Barnett/Ziegler/Byleen is designed to help students help themselves succeed in the course. This text offers more built-in guidance than any other on the market-with special emphasis on prerequisites skills-and a host of student-friendly features to help students catch up or learn on their own. The content is organized into three parts: (1) A Library of Elementary Functions (Chapters 1-2), (2) Finite Mathematics (Chapters 3-9), and (3) Calculus (Chapters 10-15).This program provides a better teaching and learning experience. Here's how: More than 6,900 exercises in the text help you craft the perfect assignments for your students, with plenty of support for prerequisite skills. Built-in guidance helps students help themselves learn course content. Flexible coverage allows instructors to use this text in a way that suits their syllabus and teaching style. MyMathLab not included. Students, if MyMathLab is a recommended/mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correct ISBN and course ID. MyMathLab is not a self-paced technology and should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.MyMathLab is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment product designed to personalize learning and improve results. With a wide range of interactive, engaging, and assignable activities, students are encouraged to actively learn and retain tough course concepts.
