College Algebra and Trigonometry, Second Edition provides a comprehensive approach to the fundamental concepts and techniques of college algebra and trigonometry. The book incorporates improvements from the previous edition to provide a better learning experience. It contains chapters that are devoted to various mathematical concepts, such as the real number system, the theory of polynomial equations, trigonometric functions, and the geometric definition of each conic section. Progress checks, warnings, and features are inserted. Every chapter contains a summary, including terms and symbols with appropriate page references; key ideas for review to stress the concepts; review exercises to provide additional practice; and progress tests to provide self-evaluation and reinforcement. The answers to all Review Exercises and Progress Tests appear in the back of the book. College students will find the book very useful and invaluable.

The Dugopolski Precalculus series for 1999 is technology optional. With this approach, teachers will be able to choose to offer either a strong technology-oriented course, or a course that does not make use of technology. For departments requiring both options, this text provides the advantage of flexibility. College Algebra and Trigonometry is designed for students who are pursuing further study in mathematics, but is equally appropriate for those who are not. For those students who will study additional mathematics, this text will provide the skills, understanding, and insights necessary for success in future courses. For those students who will not pursue further mathematics, the extensive emphasis on applications and modeling will demonstrate the usefulness and applicability of mathematics in the world today. Additionally, the focus on problem solving that is a hallmark of this text provides numerous opportunities for students to reason and think their way through problem situations. The mathematics presented here is interesting, useful, and worth studying. One of the author's principal goals in writing this text was to get students to feel the same way.

Larson's ALGEBRA AND TRIGONOMETRY is ideal for a two-term course and known for delivering sound, consistently structured explanations and carefully written exercises of the mathematical concepts. With the Tenth Edition, the author continues to revolutionize the way students learn material by incorporating more real-world applications, ongoing review and innovative technology. How Do You See It? exercises give students practice applying the concepts, and new Summarize features, and Checkpoint problems reinforce understanding of the skill sets to help students better prepare for tests. Stepped-out solution videos with instruction are available at CalcView.com for selected exercises throughout the text, and the companion website at LarsonPrecalculus.com offers free access to many additional tools and resources to supplement students’ learning.
