This textbook develops the concepts behind functions, limits, derivatives, and integrals, applies the rules of differentiation to problems involving rates of change and tangents to parametric curves, and introduces the solution of differential equations. The third edition updates data in the examples and adds projects on sprinkler water tanks and computer algebra systems. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
