Applications of Calculus

Philip D. Straffin Jr

Students see how calculus can explain the structure of a rainbow, guide a robot arm, or analyze the spread of AIDS. Each module starts with a concrete problem and moves on to provide a solution. The discussions are detailed, realistic, and pay careful attention to the process of mathematical modeling. Exercises, solutions, and references are provided.
