If purchasing or renting from companies other than Pearson, the access codes for the MyLab platform may not be included, may be incorrect, or may be previously redeemed. Check with the seller before completing your purchase.
For courses in precalculus.
This package includes MyLab Math.
Unifies the theme of a function — See, Solve, Apply
The Graphical Approach series by Hornsby, Lial, and Rockswold covers functions through a consistent, fourpart analytical process. The authors ask students to:
1: [See] Examine the nature of the graph
2: Solve a typical equation analytically and graphically
3: Solve the related inequality analytically and graphically
4: Apply analytic and graphical methods to solve an application
This proven approach helps students gain a deep visual and graphical understanding of math, solidifying a stronger connection to the mathematical world around them.
