Thomas' Calculus including Second-order Differential Equations responds to the needs of today's readers by developing their conceptual understanding while strengthening their skills in algebra and trigonometry, two areas of knowledge vital to the mastery of calculus. This book offers a full range of exercises, a precise and conceptual presentation, and a new media package designed specifically to meet the needs of today's readers. The exercises gradually increase in difficulty, helping readers learn to generalize and apply the concepts. The refined table of contents introduces the exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions in Chapter 7 of the text.
