Overview

For courses in Precalculus.

Prepare. Visualize. Succeed.

Precalculus: A Right-Triangle Approach helps students “see the math” through a focus on visualization and early introduction to functions, which allows for the use of graphs to provide a visual aspect to solving equations and inequalities. Specific features enable students to visualize and make connections between concepts. The 5th Edition expands and enhances instruction on review topics needed for corequisite courses or simply for students who come to the course underprepared. Ongoing review features throughout reinforce concepts and help students build understanding.
