Precalculus - Mathematics for Calculus

Description

This bestselling author team is known for explaining concepts simply and clearly while also providing a detailed explanation of concepts that are often considered difficult for students.
Precalculus introduces problem-solving and mathematical modelling early on, and provides students with a solid foundation in the principles of mathematical thinking.

Key Features:
- Focus on Modeling sections illustrate modelling techniques and are devoted to teaching students how to create their own mathematical models, rather than using prefabricated formulas
- Mathematics in the Modern World vignettes show that mathematics is a living science crucial to the scientific and technological progress of recent times
- Discovery/Discussion/Writing problems at the end of each section encourage students to use and develop conceptual, critical thinking and writing skills
- Discovery Projects engages students by providing a challenging but accessible set of activities that enable them to explore in greater depth an interesting aspect of the topic they have just learned
