Summary: Part of the market-leading ''Graphing Approach Series'' by Larson, Hostetler, and Edwards, ''Precalculus: A Graphing Approach,'' 5/e, is an ideal student and instructor resource for courses that require the use of a graphing calculator. The quality and quantity of the exercises, combined with interesting applications and innovative resources, make teaching easier and help students succeed. Continuing the series' emphasis on student support, the Fifth Edition introduces ''Prerequisite ...show more Skills Review.'' For selected examples throughout the text, the ''Prerequisite Skills Review'' directs students to previous sections in the text to review concepts and skills needed to master the material at hand. In addition, prerequisite skills review exercises in Eduspace (see below for description) are referenced in every exercise set. The Larson team achieves accessibility through careful writing and design, including examples with detailed solutions that begin and end on the same page, which maximizes the readability of the text. Similarly, side-by-side solutions show algebraic, graphical, and numerical representations of the mathematics and support a variety of learning styles.''New!'' The ''Nutshell Appendix'' reviews the essentials of each function, discussed in the ''Library of Functions'' feature, and offers study capsules with properties, methods, and examples of the major concepts covered in the textbook. This appendix is an ideal study aid for students.''New!'' ''Progressive Summaries'' outline newly introduced topics every three chapters and contextualize them within the framework of the course.''New!'' ''Make a Decision'' exercises--extended modeling applications presented at the end of selected exercisesets--give students the opportunity to apply the mathematical concepts and techniques they've learned to large sets of real data.''Updated!'' The ''Library of Functions,'' threaded throughout the text, defines each elementary function and its characteristics at first point of use. The Fifth Edition incorporates new exercises that tests students' understanding of these functions. All elementary functions are also presented in a summary on the front endpapers of the text for convenient reference.''Updated!'' The ''Chapter Summaries'' have been updated to include the Key Terms and Key concepts that are covered in the chapter. These chapter summaries are an effective study aid because they provide a single point of reference for review.''Updated!'' The ''Proofs of Selected Theorems'' are now presented at the end of each chapter for easy reference.The Larson team provides an abundance of features that help students use technology to visualize and understand mathematical concepts. ''Technology Tips'' point out the pros and cons of technology use in certain mathematical situations. They also provide alternative methods of solving or checking a problem using a graphing calculator. Students may sometimes be misled by the visuals generated by graphing calculators, so the authors use color to enhance the graphing calculator displays in the textbook, where appropriate. This enables students to visualize concepts accurately and efficiently. ''Technology Support'' notes appear throughout the text and refer students to the ''Technology Support Appendix,'' where they can learn how to use specific graphing calculator features to enhance their understanding of the concepts presented. The ''Technology Support'' notes alsodirect students to the ''Graphing Technology Guide,'' on the textbook's website, for keystroke support for numerous calculator models.Carefully positioned throughout the text, ''Explorations'' engage students in active discovery of mathematical concepts, strengthening critical thinking skills and helping them to develop an intuitive understanding of theoretical concepts.''What You Should Learn'' and ''Why You Should Learn It'' appears at the beginning of each chapter and section, offering students a succinct list of the concepts they will soon encounter.
