The approach of this text is more interactive than most precalculus texts and the goal of the author team is to enhance the learning process through the use of technology and to provide as much support and help for students as possible. In Connecting the Concepts, comprehension is streamlined and retention is maximized when the student views a concept in visual, rather than paragraph, form. Zeros, Solutions, and X-Intercepts Theme Carried Throughout helps students visualize and connect the following three concepts when they are solving problems: the real zeros of the function, the solutions of the associated equation, and the x-coordinates of the x-intercept of the graph of the function. Each chapter begins with a relevant application highlighting how concepts presented in the chapter can be put to use in the real world. These applications are accompanied by numerical tables, equations, and grapher windows to show students the many different ways in which problems can be examined. End-of-Chapter material includes a summary and review of properties and formulas along with a complete set of review exercises. Review exercises also include synthesis, critical thinking, and writing exercises. The answers to all of the review exercises appear in the back of the text and have text section references to further aid students. For anyone interested in learning algebra.About the Author:
