Microeconomics with Calculus, Global Edition
Professors teaching this course have two concurrent goals: to teach the microeconomic tools students need for future coursework and careers, and to encourage students to work problems. In Microeconomics: Theory and Applications with Calculus, Perloff brings his hallmark pedagogy to the calculus-based course by integrating Solved Problems and real, data-driven applications in every chapter. This new text offers a serious presentation of calculus-based microeconomic theory and offers a suite of carefully crafted, calculus-based problem sets at the end of each chapter.
Microeconomics: Theory and Applications with Calculus covers basic and modern theories first, and then offers advanced theory chapters at the end. By providing graphical representation and real-world applications to illustrate the theory, Perloff demonstrates how individuals, policy makers, and firms use microeconomic tools to analyze and resolve problems.

Perloff's algebra-based Microeconomics, now in its Fourth Edition, has become a market leader because it clearly introduces theory and helps students develop problem-solving skills through its Solved Problem feature.
