Completely clickable eTexts – with a consistent author voice throughout

Recognizing that today’s students start with the homework instead of reading the text, Kirk Trigsted has created an online learning environment that is a seamless mix of exposition, videos, interactive animations, tutorials, and assessment—designed for the way students think and behave online.

Each title in the Trigsted Precalculus Series is created from the ground up within MyLab Math – and all multimedia elements, exercises, feedback, and content are written by the author himself, ensuring a consistent, reassuring author presence throughout for students. This approach leverages the power of MyLab Math, and fosters student interaction with course materials in a way that is proving to be more effective.
