Overview

This text covers college-level algebra and trigonometry and is appropriate for a one-or two-term course in precalculus mathematics. Its approach is more interactive than most precalculus texts, and is designed to help students achieve a greater understanding of sophisticated mathematical concepts than they might be able to achieve with other texts. Our goal is to provide as much support and help for students as we can, in order to ease the difficult transition into their college-level mathematics course. At the same time, we want to give students solid preparation for calculus and maintain the appropriate topical coverage and level of presentation for a precalculus course.
