Summary

Part of the market-leading Graphing Approach series by Larson, Hostetler, and Edwards, PRECALCULUS: A GRAPHING APPROACH, 5/e, is an ideal user resource for courses that require the use of a graphing calculator. The quality and quantity of the exercises, combined with interesting applications and innovative resources, make teaching easier and help users succeed. Continuing the series' emphasis on user support, the Fifth Edition introduces Prerequisite Skills Review. For selected examples throughout the book, the Prerequisite Skills Review directs users to previous sections in the text to review concepts and skills needed to master the material at hand. In addition, prerequisite skills review exercises in Eduspace (see below for description) are referenced in every exercise set. The Larson team achieves accessibility through careful writing and design, including examples with detailed solutions that begin and end on the same page, which maximizes the readability of the text. Similarly, side-by-side solutions show algebraic, graphical, and numerical representations of the mathematics and support a variety of learning styles. This Enhanced Edition includes instant access to Enhanced WebAssignŽ, the most widely-used and reliable homework system. Enhanced WebAssignŽ presents thousands of problems, links to relevant book sections, video examples, problem-specific tutorials, and more, that help users grasp the concepts needed to succeed in this course. As an added bonus, the Start Smart Guide has been bound into this book. This guide contains instructions to help users learn the basics of WebAssign quickly.
