Calculus Early Transcendental Functions – R. Smith, R. Minton – 3rd Edition


1261 pages Smith / Minton: Mathematically Precise. Student-Friendly Superior . Students who have used Smith / Minton’s Calculus say it was easier to read than any other math they’ve used. That testimony underscores the success of the authors’ , which combines the best elements of reform with the most reliable aspects of mainstream calculus teaching, resulting in a motivating, challenging . Smith / Minton also provide exceptional, -based applications that appeal to students’ interests and demonstrate the elegance of math in the world around us.
New features include:

• A new placing all transcendental functions early in the book and consolidating the introduction to L’Hôpital’s Rule in a single section.
• More concisely written explanations in every chapter.
• Many new exercises (for a total of 7,000 throughout the book) that require additional rigor not found in the 2nd Edition.
• New exploratory exercises in every section that challenges students to synthesize key concepts to solve intriguing projects.
• New commentaries (“Beyond Formulas”) that encourage students to think mathematically beyond the procedures they learn.
• New counterpoints to the historical notes, “Today in ,” that stress the dynamism of mathematical research and applications, connecting past contributions to the present.
• An discussion of and additional applications of .
