Overview

Tailored for a first course in the study of analytic geometry, the text emphasizes the essential elements of the subject and stresses the concepts needed in calculus. This new edition was revised to present the subject in a modern, updated manner. Color is used to highlight concepts. Technology is integrated with the text, with references to the Calculus Explorer and tips for using graphing calculators. Several new topics, including curve fitting involving mathematical modeling were added. Exercises were updated. New and varied applications from medicine to navigation to public health were added.
