This is the brief version of Calculus and Its Applications, Thirteenth Edition, containing chapters 1–9. For the main text, please see ISBN 978-0-321-84890-1.

Calculus and Its Applications, Thirteenth Edition is a comprehensive, yet flexible, text for students majoring in business, economics, life science, or social sciences. The authors delve into greater mathematical depth than other texts while motivating students through relevant, up-to-date, applications drawn from students’ major fields of study. The authors motivate key ideas geometrically and intuitively, providing a solid foundation for the more abstract treatments that follow. Every chapter includes a large quantity of exceptional exercises—a hallmark of this text--that address skills, applications, concepts, and technology. The MyMathLab® course for the text features thousands of assignable exercises, built-in support for gaps in basic skills, and an array of interactive figures designed to help students visualize key concepts.

The Thirteenth Edition includes updated applications, exercises, and technology coverage. The authors have also added more study tools, including a prerequisite skills diagnostic test and a greatly improved end-of-chapter summary, and made content improvements based on user reviews.
