Clearly written and comprehensive, the tenth edition of Gustafson/Frisk/Hughes' 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. This new edition has the mathematical precision instructors have come to expect, and by bringing in new co-author, Jeff Hughes, the authors have focused on making the text more modern to better illustrate to students the importance of math in their world.
