Summary

With the same design and feature sets as the market leadingPrecalculus,7/e, this new concise text provides both students and instructors with sound, consistently structured explanations of the mathematical concepts.Precalculus: A Concise Courseis designed to offer a cost-effective, one-semester alternative to the traditional two-semester precalculus text. It contains the features that have made the Larson/Hostetler series a complete solution for both students and instructors: interesting applications, pedagogically effective design, and innovative technology combined with an abundance of carefully developed examples with worked-out solutions and exercises. In addition: Side-by-Side Example Solutionsfor select examples include multiple problem solving approaches--such as algebraic, graphical, and numerical--to appeal to a variety of teaching and learning styles. Checkpointsafter each Example/Solution refer students to similar drills in the Section Exercises, giving students the opportunity to practice and reinforce the concepts they just learned. Answers to Checkpoints are included at the back of the book. Vocabulary Checksopen every set of Section Exercises. This review of mathematical terms, formulas, and theorems provides regular assessment and reinforcement of students' understanding of algebraic language and concepts. Exercise Setsare carefully developed to improve the categorization of problems frombasic skill-buildingtochallenging;improve the pairing of similar odd- and even-numbered exercises; update all real data; and add real-life and real-data applications. New!Make a Decisionapplications--presented throughout the text at the end of selected exercise sets--are based on large sets of real data. These extended modeling applications give students the opportunity to use all the mathematical concepts and techniques they've learned and apply them to large sets of real date--analyzing it, graphing it, and making conjectures about its behavior. These applications are featured in Eduspace and the Online Learning Center in an interactive format. Eduspace, powered by Blackboard,Houghton Mifflin's online learning environment, brings your students quality online homework, tutorials, multimedia, and testing that correspond to thePrecalculus: A Concise Coursetext. This content is paired with the recognized course management tools of Blackboard.
