Presenting microeconomic theory as a way of looking at the world, MICROECONOMICS: AN INTUITIVE APPROACH WITH CALCULUS builds on the basic economic foundation of individual behavior. Each chapter is divided into two sections. The A sections introduce concepts using intuition, a conversational writing style, everyday examples, and graphs. The B sections cover the same concepts with precise, accessible mathematical analyses that pre-suppose one semester of single-variable calculus. The package offers unprecedented flexibility in terms of topical coverage and graphical analysis: each copy includes access to online LiveGraphs -- a suite of interactive, animated graphs that allows students to view dimensional graphs and functions illustrated in the book, as well as some additional graphs that are not in the printed text. Students can play and replay the LiveGraphs while listening to a brief explanation of the graphs.
