Overview

This text provides a strong foundation to precalculus that focuses on a small number of key topics thereby emphasising depth of understanding rather than breath of coverage. It provides a solid way to motivate concepts and develop critical thinking skills. The new fourth edition emphasises functions as models of change. It contains superior exercises and applications that motivate the concepts students can use to fully grasp precalculus.

    Very Sinsable Math Book

    A math book that had good examples and was readily followable by my 11th grader. Problems made sense but was a little weak on trig idenities. Why do they have to make the books so large now? When I was in school, the books were half the size and contained the same or more info. The large size not only increases the price, but gives students a bad back from carring these made large to impress books.

    Frustration should be the title of this book

    I am a student who has many problems with this book. The ideas are very confusing to a student. I have had students at level two calculus try to help me with some problems and they too find it frustrating!
