Summary

As the best-seller in its field, Precalculus, 5/e, offers both instructors and students a more solid, comprehensive, and flexible program than ever before. Designed for the one- or two-term precalculus course, the text opens with moderate algebra review and introduces trigonometry first with a unit circle approach and then with the right triangle.For a complete listing of features, see Larson/Hostetler, College Algebra, 5/e.
