Cynthia Young's Precalculus 2nd edition helps to bridge the gap between in-class work and homework by helping students overcome common learning barriers and build confidence in their ability to do mathematics. Young enables students to become independent, successful learners by including multiple exercise types, more opportunities to use technology, and a themed modeling project that empowers students to apply what they have learned in the classroom to the world outside the classroom.
