Ideal for instructors who teach a precalculus level course and wish to include a comprehensive review of algebra at the beginning, this text introduces trigonometry first with a right triangle approach and then with the unit circle. As the best-selling text in the field, Algebra and Trigonometry provides unparalleled exercises, motivating real-life applications, a supportive pedagogical design, and innovative ancillaries and resources, making it a complete solution for both students and instructors.

  • Model It real-life applications in nearly every text section are multi-part exercises that require students to generate and analyze mathematical models. First referenced in the Why You Should Learn It at the beginning of each section, these interesting applications illustrate why it is important to learn the concepts in each section.
  • Proofs in Mathematics shows the proofs of selected theorems and demonstrates different proof techniques. For added convenience, in the Sixth Edition these proofs have been moved from an appendix to the end of relevant chapters.
  • P.S. Problem Solving, at the conclusion of each chapter, features a collection of thought-provoking and challenging exercises that further explore and expand upon the concepts of the chapter. These exercises have unique characteristics that set them apart from traditional algebra and trigonometry exercises.
  • A wealth of student success tools includes How to Study This Chapter, a chapter-opening study guide that includes What you should learn (section-opening objectives), Important Vocabulary, a list of Study Tools, and a list of Additional Resources to help the student prepare for the chapter; Why you should learn it, a section-opening, real-life application or a reference to other branches of mathematics, illustrating the relevance of the section's content; and What did you learn?, a concise chapter summary organized by section. These objectives are correlated to the chapter Review Exercises to help students prepare for exams.
