Summary
As part of the marketleading Graphing Approach Series by Larson, Hostetler, and Edwards, Precalculus: A Graphing Approach, 4/e, provides both students and instructors with a sound mathematics course in an approachable, understandable format. The quality and quantity of the exercises, combined with interesting applications, cuttingedge design, and innovative resources, make teaching easier and help students succeed in mathematics. This new edition, intended for precalculus courses that require the use of a graphing calculator, includes a moderate review of algebra to help students entering the course with weak algebra skills. Enhanced accessibility to students is achieved through careful writing and design, including samepage examples and solutions, which maximize the readability of the text. Similarly, sidebyside solutions show algebraic, visual, and numeric representations of the mathematics to support students' various learning styles. New! The Library of Functions thread throughout the text provides a definition and list of characteristics for each elementary function and compares newly introduced functions to those already presented to increase students' understanding of these important concepts. A Library of Functions Summary also appears inside the front cover for quick reference. New! Technology Support notes provided at pointofuse throughout the text guide students to the Technology Support Appendix, where they can learn how to use specific graphing calculator features to enhance their understanding of the concepts presented. These notes also direct students to the Graphing Technology Guide on the textbook web site for keystroke support. New! Technology Tips, also provided at pointofuse, call attention to the strengths and weaknesses of graphing technology. Some of these tips offer alternative methods for solving or checking a problem using technology. New! Because students are often misled by the jagged nature of graphs generated by graphing calculators, this text frequently highlights the path of a function in color on the calculator image. This unique design feature enables students to visualize the mathematical concepts clearly and accurately and avoid common misunderstandings. Study Tips at pointofuse throughout the text reinforce concepts and help students learn how to study mathematics. New! Checkpoint questions appear after each workedout solution, directing students to work a similar exercise for further practice or concept reinforcement. These can be used by instructors in class to quickly check student understanding or by students to practice and study concepts. Chapter Review exercises, Chapter Tests, and periodic Cumulative Tests offer students frequent opportunities for selfassessment and help them to develop strong study and testtaking skills. The Student Success Organizer is a valuable notetaking guide that helps students organize their class notes and create an effective study and review tool. New! Textspecific Tutorial Support is provided in numerous additional resources designed to help students succeed. These resources include live online tutoring, instructional DVDs and videos, and algorithmic tutorial support and selfassessment available on CDROM and the web. Explorations provided at pointofuse throughout the text can help instructors provide a quick introduction to concepts or reinforce student understanding. <
