Precalculus with Limits : Functions and Graphs - 02 edition

Precalculus with Limits : Functions and Graphs (ISBN10: 0201703335; ISBN13: 9780201703337)
ISBN13: 978-0201703337
ISBN10: 0201703335

Summary: Building on Mark Dugopolski's name, this graphing optional text is designed for the one or two semester precalculus course and includes coverage of analytic geometry, vectors, and the limit. With faster pacing and less review, this is an excellent choice for those students going on to calculus.

Features :
  • Chapter Opener Each chapter begins with a Chapter Opener that discusses a real-wo
    rld situation in which the mathematics of the chapter is used. Examples and exercises that relate back to the opener are included within the chapter.
  • Function Gallery organizes and clarifies various functions in a consistent and easy to understand manner--helping students to master one of the most important concepts in the course.
  • Foreshadowing Calculus notes appear throughout the text to help students identify and focus on important calculus topics.
  • Regression Problems Many regression problems have been included in the text so that students can start with real data and use a calculator to obtain mathematical models of real problem situations.
  • For Thought Each exercise set begins with a set of true or false questions that reviews the basic concepts in that section, helps check student understanding before beginning the exercises, and offers opportunities for writing and/or discussion.
  • Exercise Sets Applications The exercise sets have been examined carefully to ensure that the exercises range from easy to challenging, and are arranged in order of increasing difficulty. Some exercises require a graphing calculator and most are based on or involve applications of real-world situations. The emphasis of many exercises is on understanding concepts and relationships.
  • Linking Concepts, located at the end of nearly every exercise set, is a multi-part exercise or exploration that can be used for individual or group work. The idea of this feature is to use a concept from the current section along with concepts from previous sections, and ask questions that help students see the links among various concepts. Some parts of these questions are open-ended, and require somewhat more thought than standard exercises. Answers to this feature are given only in the Instructor's Solutions Manual.
  • Tying It All Together is a review of selected concepts from the present and prior chapters, and requires students to integrate multiple concepts and skills.
  • Graphing Calculator Exercises Optional exercises that require a graphing calculator are located in the exercise sets and are clearly marked with a graphing calculator icon.
  • Graphing Calculator Discussions Optional graphing calculator discussions have been integrated into the text, but are identified by a graphing calculator icon so that they can be easily skipped by those not using this technology.
  • Highlights This end-of-chapter feature presents an overview of each section of the chapter, and is a useful summary of the basic information that students should have mastered in that chapter.
  • Chapter Review Exercises These exercises are designed to review the chapter without reference to the individual sections, and prepare students for the Chapter Test.
  • Chapter Test The problems in the Chapter Test are designed to help students measure their readiness for a classroom test, and instructors may use them as a model for their own end of chapter tests.
  • Index of Applications lists many applications contained within the text and immediately follows the Table of Contents. The applications are page-referenced, and grouped by subject matter.
