The Graphs and Models series by Bittinger, Beecher, Ellenbogen, and Penna is known for helping students “see the math” through its focus on visualization and technology. These texts continue to maintain the features that have helped students succeed for years: focus on functions, visual emphasis, side-by-side algebraic and graphical solutions, and real-data applications.
With the Fifth Edition, visualization is taken to a new level with technology. The authors also integrate smartphone apps, encouraging readers to visualize the math. In addition, ongoing review has been added with new Mid-Chapter Mixed Review exercise sets and new Study Guide summaries to help students prepare for tests.
