9780030976919: Contemporary Pre-Calculus: A Graphing Approach

Hungerford integrates 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. The concepts that play a central role in calculus are explored from algebraic, graphical, and numerical perspectives. Students are expected to participate actively in the development of these concepts by using graphing calculators (or computers with suitable software), as directed in the Graphing Explorations, either to complete a particular discussion or to explore appropriate examples.
