Overview


Clear explanations, an uncluttered and appealing layout, and examples and exercises featuring a variety of real-life applications have made this book popular among students year after year. This latest edition of Swokowski and Cole's ALGEBRA AND TRIGONOMETRY WITH ANALYTIC GEOMETRY retains these features. The problems have been consistently praised for being at just the right level for precalculus students. The book also provides calculator examples, including specific keystrokes that show how to use various graphing calculators to solve problems more quickly. Perhaps most important--this book effectively prepares readers for further courses in mathematics.
