Calculus for the Life Sciences

Calculus for the Life Sciences features interesting, relevant applications that motivate students and highlight the utility of mathematics for the life sciences. This edition also features new ways to engage students with the material, such as Your Turn exercises. The MyMathLab (R) course for the text provides online homework supported by learning resources such as video tutorials, algebra help, and step-by-step examples. Teaching and Learning Experience This program will provide a better teaching and learning experience. Here's how: Personalized help with MyMathLab: MyMathLab delivers proven results by personalizing the learning process. Motivation: Students constantly see the math applied to the life sciences. Built for student success: Proven pedagogy, robust exercise sets, and comprehensive end-of-chapter material help students succeed in the course. Please note that the product you are purchasing does not include MyMathLab. MyMathLab Join over 11 million students benefiting from Pearson MyLabs. This title can be supported by MyMathLab, an online homework and tutorial system designed to test and build your understanding. Would you like to use the power of MyMathLab to accelerate your learning? You need both an access card and a course ID to access MyMathLab. These are the steps you need to take: 1. Make sure that your lecturer is already using the system Ask your lecturer before purchasing a MyLab product as you will need a course ID from them before you can gain access to the system. 2. Check whether an access card has been included with the book at a reduced cost If it has, it will be on the inside back cover of the book. 3. If you have a course ID but no access code, you can benefit from MyMathLab at a reduced price by purchasing a pack containing a copy of the book and an access code for MyMathLab (ISBN:9781292072050) 4. If your lecturer is using the MyLab and you would like to purchase the product... Go to www.mymathlab.com to buy access to this interactive study programme. For educator access, contact your Pearson representative. To find out who your Pearson representative is, visit www.pearsoned.co.uk/replocator
