Drawing on their decades of teaching experience, William Briggs and Lyle Cochran have created a calculus text that carries the teacher's voice beyond the classroom. That voice--evident in the narrative, the figures, and the questions interspersed in the narrative--is a master teacher leading readers to deeper levels of understanding. The authors appeal to readers' geometric intuition to introduce fundamental concepts and lay the foundation for the more rigorous development that follows. Comprehensive exercise sets have received praise for their creativity, quality, and scope. This book covers chapters multivariable topics (chapters 9--15) of Calculus for Scientists and Engineers: Early Transcendentals, which is an expanded version of Calculus: Early Transcendentals by the same authors. 0321844556 / 9780321844552 Calculus for Scientists and Engineers, Multivariable plus MyMathLab Student Access Kit Package consists of 0321431308 / 9780321431301 MyMathLab/MyStatLab -- Glue-in Access Card 0321654064 / 9780321654069 MyMathLab Inside Star Sticker 0321785517 / 9780321785510 Calculus for Scientists and Engineers, Multivariable

Collected over several years by Peter Winkler, of Bell Labs, dozens of elegant, intriguing challenges are presented in Mathematical Puzzles. The answers are easy to explain, but without this book, devilishly hard to find. Creative reasoning is the key to these puzzles. No involved computation or higher mathematics is necessary, but your ability to construct a mathematical proof will be severly tested--even if you are a professional mathematician. For the truly adventurous, there is even a chapter on unsolved puzzles.

COLLEGE PHYSICS: REASONING & RELATIONSHIPS is an innovative new text that uses the hallmark theme of reasoning and relationships to help students master the fundamental concepts of the course. By understanding the reasoning behind problem solving, students learn to recognize the concepts involved, think critically about them, and move beyond merely memorizing facts and equations. By recognizing the relationships between physics and their experiences, students will develop a stronger understanding of how the concepts relate to each other. COLLEGE PHYSICS: REASONING & RELATIONSHIPS uses original applications drawn from the life sciences and familiar everyday scenarios to motivate student learning and a consistent problem-solving approach to prepare students for the rigors of the course.

This much anticipated second edition of the most successful new calculus text published in the last two decades retains the best of the first edition while introducing important advances and refinements. Authors Briggs, Cochran, and Gillett build from a foundation of meticulously crafted exercise sets, then draw students into the narrative through writing that reflects the voice of the instructor, examples that are stepped out and thoughtfully annotated, and figures that are designed to teach rather than simply supplement the narrative. The authors appeal to students' geometric intuition to introduce fundamental concepts, laying a foundation for the development that follows. Note: You are purchasing a standalone product; MyMathLab does not come packaged with this content. MyMathLab is not a self-paced technology and should only be purchased when required by an instructor.

Abenteuer eines neugierigen Physikers

Der Nobelpreisträger als mitreißender Geschichtenerzähler Dieses unglaublich witzige Buch dreht sich rund um den Menschen Feynman, der mit Anekdoten und Geschichten aus der Schulzeit, aus seiner Zeit in Los Alamos und schließlich als Professor aufwartet. Aber auch die Motivation Richard P. Feynmans, zu den höchsten Gipfeln der Wissenschaft vorzudringen, wird aus diesen Geschichten deutlich: unersättliche Neugier und geistige Unabhängigkeit. »Der Kernphysiker Hans Bethe beschrieb Dr. Feynman eins als ›Zauberer‹. Er hatte Recht. Es bedarf in gewissem Maß der Zauberei, um Wissenschaft so unterhaltsam, überzeugend und einfach zu machen, wie Feynman das getan hat.« Bill Gates in seinem Vorwort
