Jim Stewart, author of the worldwide, best-selling calculus texts, along with two of his former Ph.D. students, Lothar Redlin and Saleem Watson, collaborated in writing this text to address a problem they frequently saw in their calculus courses: many students were not prepared to think mathematically but attempted instead to memorize facts and mimic examples. College Algebra was written specifically to help students learn to think mathematically and to develop true problem-solving skills. Following the success of the most recent revision of Precalculus, the Third Edition shows how the authors have refined their approach to make it work even more effectively for today's students.
