New Features

- Preview of Calculus: This precalculus text includes a further focus on those skills considered prerequisite for calculus. Foundations of Calculus icons are included throughout identifying key examples and exercises needed to build this skill set. A review chapter summarizing these skills will round out the text.
- Objective Based Learning: Introductory section objectives have been expanded to include the "what and why" of the objectives, followed by icons within the text identifying the specific areas of focus. A summary of chapter objectives will now be featured in the chapter summary material.
- Mathematical Modeling and Data Analysis: A focus on mathematical modeling and data analysis, specifically establishing a step by step process for understanding word problems and gathering the data from said problems.
