This text uses the graphing utility to enhance the study of mathematics. Technology is used as a tool to solve problems, motivate concepts, and explore mathematical ideas. "Enhanced with Graphing Utilities" provides clear and focused coverage. Many of the problems are solved using both algebra and a graphing utility, and the text illustrates the advantages and benefits of each approach. Technology is used to solve problems when no algebraic solution is available and to help students visualize certain concepts. Topics such as curve-fitting and data analysis are incorporated as appropriate.About the Author:
