This book's objective is to make learning mathematics easier. Its easy-to-follow writing style and its balanced approach between mathematical theory and real-world applications allow the user to progress step-by-step; concepts are presented and then built upon, strengthening understanding and providing solid support for learning new concepts. Using color graphics, illustrations, examples, and application problems, topics covered in this easy-to-follow book are linear equations and inequalities; factors and fractions; exponents and radicals; functions and graphs; quadratic equations; systems of equations; higher degree equations; exponential and logarithmic functions; right angle trigonometry; vectors and oblique triangles; graphs; complex numbers; analytic geometry; introduction to statistics and empirical curve fitting; sequences, series, and the binomial theorem; differentiation with applications; integration with applications; derivations of transcendental functions; and differential equations. For workers in technical fields needing to brush up on their mathematic skills.
Larson's ALGEBRA AND TRIGONOMETRY is ideal for a two-term course and is known for delivering sound, consistently structured explanations and carefully written exercises of the mathematical concepts. With the Ninth Edition, the author continues to revolutionize the way students learn material by incorporating more real-world applications, on-going review and innovative technology. How Do You See It? exercises give you practice applying the concepts, and new Summarize features, Checkpoint problems and a Companion Website reinforce understanding of the skill sets to help students better prepare for tests.

Julie Miller wrote her developmental math series because students were coming into her Precalculus course underprepared. They weren’t mathematically mature enough to understand the concepts of math nor were they fully engaged with the material. She began her developmental mathematics offerings with intermediate algebra to help bridge that gap. The Precalculus series is a carefully constructed end to that bridge that uses the highly effective pedagogical features from her fastest growing developmental math series. What sets Julie Miller’s series apart is that it addresses course issues through an author-created digital package that maintains a consistent voice and notation throughout the program. This consistency--in videos, PowerPoints, Lecture Notes, and Group Activities--coupled with the power of ALEKS and Connect Hosted by ALEKS, ensures that students master the skills necessary to be successful in Precalculus and can carry them through to the calculus sequence.

Important information is also included on undergraduate preparation, the application process, financial aid, and graduation requirements.
College Algebra: Graphs and Models, 2/e covers college-level algebra and is appropriate for a one-term, graphing calculator required, college algebra course. A course in intermediate algebra is a prerequisite for the text, although Chapter R provides sufficient review to unify the diverse backgrounds of most students. The approach of this text is more interactive than most precalculus texts and the goal of the author team is to enhance the learning process through the use of technology and to provide as much support and help for students as possible.
