Overview

Anyone trying to learn algebra and trigonometry may think they understand a concept but then are unable to apply that understanding when they attempt to complete exercises. This innovative book helps them overcome common barriers to learning the concepts and builds confidence in their ability to do mathematics. The second edition presents new sections on modeling at the end of each chapter as well as new material on Limits and Early Functions. Numerous examples are also included that provide more detailed annotations using everyday language. This approach gives them the skills to understand and apply algebra and trigonometry.
