Hungerford approaches the subject of precalculus by integrating graphing technology into the course without losing sight of the fact that the underlying mathematics is the crucial issue. Mathematics is presented in an informal manner that stresses meaningful motivation, careful explanations, and numerous examples, with an ongoing focus on real-world problem solving.
