Summary: With the same design and feature sets as the market leading Precalculus, 8/e, this addition to the Larson Precalculus series provides both students and instructors with sound, consistently structured explanations of the mathematical concepts. Designed for a two-term course, this text contains the features that have made Precalculus a complete solution for both students and instructors: interesting applications, cutting-edge design, and innovative technology combined with an abundance of carefull ...show morey written exercises. In addition to a brief algebra review and the core precalculus topics, PRECALCULUS WITH LIMITS covers analytic geometry in three dimensions and introduces concepts covered in calculus. --Side-by-side Example Solutions for select examples include multiple problem solving approaches-such as algebraic, graphical, and numerical-to appeal to a variety of teaching and learning styles. --Checkpoints after each Example/Solution refer students to similar drills in the Section Exercises, allowing students to practice and reinforce the concepts they just learned. Answers to Checkpoints are included at the back of the book. --Vocabulary Checks open every set of Section Exercises. This review of mathematical terms, formulas, and theorems provides regular assessment and reinforcement of students' understanding of algebraic language and concepts. --Exercise Sets have been carefully analyzed and revised to improve the categorization of problems from basic skill-building to challenging; improve the pairing of similar odd- and even-numbered exercises; update all real data; and add real-life and real-data applications. Ron Larson Ron Larson received his Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Colorado and has been a professor of mathematics at The Pennsylvania State University since 1970. He has pioneered the use of multimedia to enhance the learning of mathematics, having authored over 30 software titles since 1990. Dr. Larson has also conducted numerous seminars and in-service workshops for math teachers around the country about using computer technology as a teaching tool and motivational aid. His INTERACTIVE CALCULUS (a complete text on CD-ROM) received the 1996 Texty Award for the most innovative mathematics instructional material at the college level, and was the first mainstream college textbook to be offered on the Internet. ...show lessEdition/Copyright: 2ND 11
