Description

The 5th edition of this market-leading text helps instructors instill key algebra and trig concepts and helps students develop critical thinking skills. Functions Modeling Change, 5th Edition, is designed to accomplish the main goals of the Precalculus course: to build a solid mathematical foundation and prepare students for Calculus. The authors achieve this by focusing on a small number of key topics, thereby emphasizing depth of understanding rather than breadth of coverage. Functions Modeling Change, 5th Edition, presents each function symbolically, numerically, graphically and verbally (the Rule of Four). Additionally, a large number of real-world applications, examples, and problems enable students to create mathematical models that relate to the world around them.
