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'."
