The Barnett, Ziegler, Byleen College Algebra series is designed to be user friendly and to maximize student comprehension, emphasizing computational skills, ideas, and problem solving as opposed to mathematical theory. Suitable for a one or two semester college algebra with trigonometry or precalculus course, Precalculus with Limits introduces a unit circle approach to trigonometry and includes a chapter on limits to provide students with a solid foundation for calculus concepts.

The large number of pedagogical devices employed in this text will guide a student through the course. Integrated throughout the text, students and instructors will find Explore-Discuss boxes which encourage students to think critically about mathematical concepts. In each section, the worked examples are followed by matched problems that reinforce the concept being taught. In addition, the text contains an abundance of exercises and applications that will convince students that math is useful. A MathZone site featuring algorithmic exercises, videos, and other resources accompanies the text.
