Chicken of Calculus? If youve ever been lost trying to solve a calculus problem, this step-by-step guide is your salvation! Never be mystified again! Solutions contain lots of intermediate steps not found in other calculus student-solutions manuals. Includes more examples that are completely worked out in detailed step-by-step fashion. (Many texts assume-wrongly-that students can figure out the missing steps on their own.) No assumptions that the student has excellent algebra skills (as most books do), so even the basic steps that include algebra concepts are worked out.
Also included are examples of what NOT to do. Many instructors find that this is the missing link between the textbook and the student. Divided into three sections: Part 1 contains study tips, hits and tricks for students that are usually not covered explicitly in calculus texts- Part 2 includes a huge test bank- Part 3 has completely worked out examples for the test bank.
Embodies a conversational and colloquial style, avoiding the traditional technical and dry presentation approach found in most books on mathematics. Note from the Author, Mimi Rasky Third Semester Calculus: Student Supplement, 4TH Edition is meant to be an aid for the student.
It is not intended to be a replacement for a main text in the course. Originally, this book was written to parallel Roland E. Larsons Calculus, Seventh Edition. However, this book can be used to supplement any third semester (multi-variable and vector analysis) calculus course. This book has features and benefits to the student that are missing from other books and calculus supplements such as Schaums Outlines and the like.
For example: I have included many more vector analysis examples needed for third semester calculus than the other books on the market. I also spend a lot of time and space discussing cylindrical and spherical coordinates, and include numerous examples on the basics of these as well as the vector analysis use of these coordinate systems. I have also found that students appreciate (and need) quite a bit of algebra review in their calculus classes. Although many instructors refuse to backtrack to cover algebra in a calculus course, I have found that students get the satisfaction of realizing their algebra skills actually have a place in higher levels of math.
So, I take time (and space) to do this in many of my examples.
