Details: Product Description The Sullivan’s time-tested approach focuses students on the fundamental skills they need for the course: preparing for class, practicing with homework, and reviewing the concepts. The Enhanced with Graphing Utilities Series has evolved to meet today’s course needs by integrating the usage of graphing calculators, active-learning, and technology in new ways to help students be successful in their course, as well as in their future endeavors. In the Seventh Edition, there are several new features that appear in both the text and MyMathLab. Retain Your Knowledge problems offer the type of “final exam material” that students can use to maintain their skills throughout each chapter. KEY TOPICS: Graphs; Functions and Their Graphs; Linear and Quadratic Functions; Polynomial and Rational Functions; Exponential and Logarithmic Functions; Trigonometric Functions; Analytic Trigonometry; Applications of Trigonometric Functions; Polar Coordinates; Vectors; Analytic Geometry; Systems of Equations and Inequalities; Sequences; Induction; The Binomial Theorem; Counting and Probability; A Preview of Calculus: The Limit, Derivative, and Integral of a Fraction MARKET: For anyone interested in precalculus.
