Overview

Clearly written and comprehensive, the ninth edition of Gustafson and Frisk's popular book provides in-depth and precise coverage, incorporated into a framework of tested teaching strategy. The authors combine carefully selected pedagogical features and patient explanation to give students a book that preserves the integrity of mathematics, yet does not discourage them with material that is confusing or too rigorous. Long respected for its ability to help students quickly master difficult problems, this book also helps them develop the skills they'll need in future courses and in everyday life.
