Think of it as portable office hours! AUTOMATICALLY PACKAGED WITH THE TEXT, the Interactive Video Skillbuilder CD-ROM contains more than eight hours of video instruction. The problems worked during each video lesson are shown on the viewing screen so that students can try working them before watching the solution. To help students evaluate their progress, each section contains a 10-question Web quiz (the results of which can be emailed to the instructor) and each chapter contains a chapter test, with the answer to each problem on each test. This CD-ROM also includes MathCue tutorial and quizzing software, featuring a Skill Builder that presents problems to solve and evaluates answers with step-by-step explanations; a Quiz function that enables students to generate quiz problems keyed to problem types from each section of the book; a Chapter Test that provides many problems keyed to problem types from each chapter; and a Solution Finder that allows students to enter their own basic problems and receive step-by-step help as if they were working with a tutor. A new learning tool on this CD-ROM is a graphing calculator tutorial featuring examples, exercises, and video tutorials.

Lial and J. Holcomb); and CONTEMPORARY PRECALCULUS, Fifth Edition (Cengage, 2009; with D. Shaw).Review:
"It is obvious that the author has spent a great deal of time to incorporate technology in an appropriate way. I particularly like the way in which he asks the student to first check graphically the trig identity(s) he/she is trying to prove." "Technology Investigations really help students to have a better and more meaningful understanding of the subject matter. They also help students to have a deeper conceptual understanding." "Both the presentation of the materials and the problem sets are excellent. The text contains outstanding applied problems. Additionally, it contains well thought out 'Discovery Projects.'"
"The use of the calculator investigations/explorations within the text does a very good job of illustrating the algebraic properties or solving techniques that are being discussed. The directions are easy to follow and it is clear as to what the student is actually trying to explore." "I found the text easy to read, there were plenty of examples for the students to use to help guide them with the homework, and the page layouts were neither cluttered nor confusing."
