Functions Modeling Change : A Preparation for Calculus (Cloth) - 3rd edition

Functions Modeling Change : A Preparation for Calculus (Cloth) (ISBN10: 0471793027; ISBN13: 9780471793021)
ISBN13: 978-0471793021
ISBN10: 0471793027

Summary: The third edition of this ground-breaking text continues the authors' goal - a targeted introduction to precalculus that carefully balances concepts with procedures. Overall, this text is designed to provide a solid foundation to precalculus that focuses on a small number of key topics thereby emphasizing depth of understanding rather than breath of coverage. Developed by the Calculus Consortium, FMC 3e is flexible enough to be thought-provoking for well-prepared studen
ts while still remaining accessible to students with weaker backgrounds. As multiple representations encourage students to reflect on the material, each function is presented 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 will help them understand and interpret the world in which they live.
