9780030185441: Contemporary Pre-Calculus: A Graphing Approach

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.

About the Author:

Thomas W. Hungerford received his M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Chicago. He has taught at the University of Washington and at Cleveland State University, and is now at St. Louis University. His research fields are algebra and mathematics education. He is the author of many notable books for undergraduate and graduate level courses. In addition to ABSTRACT ALGEBRA: AN INTRODUCTION, these include: ALGEBRA (Springer, Graduate Texts in Mathematics, #73. 1974); MATHEMATICS WITH APPLICATIONS, Tenth Edition (Pearson, 2011; with M. Lial and J. Holcomb); and CONTEMPORARY PRECALCULUS, Fifth Edition (Cengage, 2009; with D. Shaw).

Review:

"The explorations and investigations fit perfectly with the concepts. They motivate 'discovery' ..."

"Thomas Hungerford's writing style is exceptionally clear and he explains precalculus concepts, principles and procedures with plenty of examples."

"The Graphing Explorations and Investigations are well placed and helpful. (Hungerford's CONTEMPORARY PRECALCULUS, 4th) is the best I've seen for integrating the calculator into a 'standard text'."
