Tailored for a first course in the study of analytic geometry, the text emphasizes the essential elements of the subject and stresses the concepts needed in calculus. This new edition was revised to present the subject in a modern, updated manner. Color is used to highlight concepts. Technology is integrated with the text, with references to the Calculus Explorer and tips for using graphing calculators.

Several new topics, including curve fitting involving mathematical modeling, were added. Exercises were updated. New and varied applications from medicine to navigation to public health were added.


  • Historical comments and real-world examples and exercises add to student interest.
  • A strong graphing emphasis effectively prepares students for calculus. Tips on the use of a graphing calculator are included.
  • Curve sketching, including mathematical modeling, are emphasized.
  • Many new topics were added to enrich the text.
  • End-of-chapter material now includes Key Terms, Chapter Review exercises, and a Chapter Test.
