The authors help students ''see the math'' through their focus on functions; visual emphasis; side-by-side algebraic and graphical solutions; real-data applications; and examples and exercises. By remaining focused on today's students and their needs, the authors lead students to mathematical understanding and, ultimately, success in class.
