Overview
The proven approach of Michael Sullivan and Michael Sullivan III focuses you on the fundamental skills needed for the algebra and trigonometry course: prepare for class, practice with homework, and review the concepts. Part of the Enhanced with Graphing Utilities Series, College Algebra Enhanced with Graphing Utilities fully integrates graphing utilities into topics, allowing you to explore mathematical concepts and encounter ideas usually studied in later courses. Many examples show solutions using algebra side by side with graphing techniques. In the 8th Edition, all exercises and examples in the text have been reviewed and updated as needed, and the authors have added new problemsolving and review features.
