This best selling author team explains concepts simply and clearly, without glossing over difficult points. Problem solving and mathematical modeling are introduced early and reinforced throughout, providing students with a solid foundation in the principles of mathematical thinking. Comprehensive and evenly paced, the book provides complete coverage of the function concept, and integrates a significant amount of graphing calculator material to help students develop insight into mathematical ideas. The authors' attention to detail and clarity, the same as found in James Stewart's market-leading Calculus text, is what makes this text the market leader.

Engineers looking for an accessible approach to calculus will appreciate Young’s introduction. The book offers a clear writing style that helps reduce any math anxiety they may have while developing their problem-solving skills. It incorporates Parallel Words and Math boxes that provide detailed annotations which follow a multi-modal approach. Your Turn exercises reinforce concepts by allowing them to see the connection between the exercises and examples. A five-step problem solving method is also used to help engineers gain a stronger understanding of word problems.

David Cohen's PRECALCULUS, WITH UNIT-CIRCLE TRIGONOMETRY, Fourth Edition, focuses on teaching mathematics, using a graphical perspective throughout to provide a visual understanding of college algebra and trigonometry. The author is known for his clear writing style and the numerous quality exercises and applications he includes in his respected texts. In this new edition, graphs, visualization of data, and functions are now introduced much earlier and receive greater emphasis. Many sections now contain more examples and exercises involving applications and real-life data. While this edition takes the existence of the graphing calculator for granted, the material is arranged so that one can teach the course with as much or as little graphing utility work as he/she wishes.

The Enhanced Edition of Swokowski and Cole’s PRECALCULUS: FUNCTIONS AND GRAPHS retains the elements in the Twelfth Edition that have made it so popular with instructors and students alike: clear exposition, an appealing and uncluttered layout, and applications-rich exercise sets. It features an additional chapter on Limits (Chapter 11) and an Appendix V that includes proofs related to this new chapter. The excellent, time-tested problems have been widely praised for their consistency and their appropriate level of difficulty for precalculus students. The book also provides calculator examples, including specific keystrokes that show students how to use various graphing calculators to solve problems more quickly. This Enhanced Edition features updated topical references and data and continues to be supported by outstanding technology resources. Mathematically sound, this book effectively prepares students for further courses in mathematics.

Written by David Cohen and co-authors Theodore B. Lee and David Sklar, PRECALCULUS, Seventh Edition, focuses on the use of a graphical perspective to provide a visual understanding of college algebra and trigonometry. Cohen's texts are known for their clear writing style and outstanding, graded exercises and applications, including many examples and exercises involving applications and real-life data. Graphs, visualization of data, and functions are introduced and emphasized early on to aid student understanding. Although the text provides thorough treatment of the graphing calculator, the material is arranged to allow instructors to teach the course with as much or as little graphing utility work as they wish.

Every New Copy of Precalculus: A Functional Approach to Graphing and Problem Solving Includes Access to the Student Companion Website! Precalculus: A Functional Approach to Graphing and Problem Solving prepares students for the concepts and applications they will encounter in future calculus courses. In far too many texts, process is stressed over insight and understanding, and students move on to calculus ill equipped to think conceptually about its essential ideas. This text provides sound development of the important mathematical underpinnings of calculus, stimulating problems and exercises, and a well-developed, engaging pedagogy. Students will leave with a clear understanding of what lies ahead in their future calculus courses. Instructors will find that Smith's straightforward, student-friendly presentation provides exactly what they have been looking for in a text!

Instructors are always faced with the dilemma of too much material and too little time. Perfect for the one-term course, Precalculus with Calculus Previews, Fourth Edition provides a complete, yet manageable, introduction to precalculus concepts while focusing on important topics that will be of direct and immediate use in most calculus courses. Consistent with Professor Zill's eloquent writing style, this four-color text offers numerous exercise sets and examples to aid in students' learning and understanding, while graphs and figures throughout serve to illuminate key concepts. The exercise sets include engaging problems that focus on algebra, graphing, and function theory, the sub-text of so many calculus problems.
