Summary

Unique and enthusiastic in its approach, Lehmann's book is a rich combination of important skills, concepts, and applications. This book captivates readers'interest as they use curve fitting to model current, compelling, and authentic situations. The curve fitting approach emphasizes concepts related to functions in a natural, substantial way and encourages readers to view functions graphically, numerically, and symbolically as well as to verbally describe concepts related to functions. The examples in the test demonstrate both how to perform skills and how to investigate concepts. Students learn why they perform skills to solve problems as well as how to solve the problems. Explorations deepen users'understanding as they investigate mathematics with graphing calculator and pencil and paper activities.Topics discussed include linear functions, modeling with linear functions, systems of linear functions, exponential functions, logarithmic functions, polynomial functions, using quadratic functions to model data, rational functions, radical functions, and modeling with sequences and series.For individuals interested in deepening their understanding of algebra.
