Thoroughly updated with the latest research, Gravetter/Wallnau/Forzano/Witnauer’s ESSENTIALS OF STATISTICS FOR THE BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES, 10th Edition delivers straightforward instruction, unrivaled accuracy, hands-on learning tools and a wealth of real-world examples and illustrations. Giving extra focus to difficult topics, the authors take time to explain statistical procedures so that students can go beyond memorizing formulas and begin gaining a conceptual understanding. Integrated applications reinforce concepts, ensuring that even students with a weak background in mathematics can fully grasp statistics. As a result, readers become savvy consumers of information. A complete supplements package — including the MindTap digital learning experience with the Aplia online homework tool — supports instructors with class preparation, testing and the ability to customize learning paths and content to maximize student success.
Bob Blitzer has inspired thousands of students with his engaging approach to mathematics, making this beloved series the #1 in the market. Blitzer draws on his unique background in mathematics and behavioral science to present the full scope of mathematics with vivid applications in real-life situations. Students stay engaged because Blitzer often uses pop-culture and up-to-date references to connect math to students’ lives, showing that their world is profoundly mathematical. With the Fifth Edition, Blitzer takes student engagement to a whole new level. In addition to the multitude of exciting updates to the text and MyMathLab(R) course, new application-based MathTalk videos allow students to think about and understand the mathematical world in a fun, yet practical way. Assessment exercises allow instructors to assign the videos and check for understanding of the mathematical concepts presented.
Work is changing. Speed and flexibility are more in demand than ever before thanks to an accelerating knowledge economy and sophisticated communication networks. These changes have forced a mass rethinking of the way we coordinate, collaborate, and communicate. Instead of projects coming to established teams, teams are increasingly converging around projects. These ?all-edge adhocracies? are highly collaborative and mostly temporary, their edge coming from the ability to form links both inside and outside an organization. These nimble groups come together around a specific task, recruiting personnel, assigning roles, and establishing objectives. When the work is done they disband their members and take their skills to the next project. Spinuzzi offers for the first time a comprehensive framework for understanding how these new groups function and thrive. His rigorous analysis tackles both the pros and cons of this evolving workflow and is based in case studies of real all-edge adhocracies at work. His provocative results will challenge our long-held assumptions about how we should be doing work.
Calculus & Its Applications builds intuition with key concepts of calculus before the analytical material. For example, the authors explain the derivative geometrically before they present limits, and they introduce the definite integral intuitively via the notion of net change before they discuss Riemann sums.
The strategic organisation of topics makes it easy to adjust the level of theoretical material covered. The significant applications introduced early in the course serve to motivate students and make the mathematics more accessible. Another unique aspect of the text is its intuitive use of differential equations to model a variety of phenomena in Chapter 5, which addresses applications of exponential and logarithmic functions.
Calculus for Business, Economics, Life Sciences, and Social Sciences, 14th Edition offers more built-in guidance than any other text in its field – with special emphasis on applications and prerequisite skills – and a host of student-friendly features to help students catch up or learn on their own. The text’s emphasis on helping students “get the idea” is enhanced in the new edition by a design refresh and updated data and applications.
