Summary

Summary

Faires' and DeFranza's PRECALCULUS provides students with an integrated review of algebra and trigonometry while focusing on the calculus concepts they'll need to know. The authors wrote this book because they believe students too often leave a precalculus class unprepared to go on. Although students who complete a precalculus course generally have had plenty of algebra and trigonometry review, they often lack the grounding in analysis and graphing necessary to make the transition to calculus. This streamlined text provides all the mathematics that students need -- it doesn't bog them down in review, or overwhelm them with too much, too soon. The authors have been careful to keep this book at a length that can be covered in one term.
