Providing the rigor of solid mathematics with an engaging and friendly approach
As teachers, Ratti and McWaters saw firsthand where their Precalculus and Calculus students struggled, where they needed help making connections, and what material they needed to be successful in calculus. They decided to partner and write this text with the primary goal of preparing students to be successful in calculus and future STEM courses. Their experience in the classroom shows in each chapter. The focus on conceptual development, reallife applications, and extensive exercises, encourages a deeper understanding of the mathematics. Precalculus: A Unit Circle Approach, 3rd Edition, includes thorough coverage of topics as preparation for calculus, including; trig identities, difference quotient, functional composition, decomposition and emphasizes graphing techniques/transformations.
Personalize learning with MyLab Math
MyLab™ Math is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results. Within its structured environment, students practice what they learn, test their understanding, and pursue a personalized study plan that helps them absorb course material and understand difficult concepts. At University of South Florida, the author’s school, student results improved when using this book with MyLab Math. Published results are available at Pearsonmylabandmastering.com on the Results page. For the new edition, MyLab Math continues to expand the comprehensive autograded exercise options. The preexisting exercises were carefully reviewed, vetted, and improved using aggregated student usage and performance data over time. In addition, MyLab Math includes new options to support conceptual learning, visualization, and student preparedness.
NOTE: This package includes a MyLab Math access kit created specifically for Ratti/McWaters/Skrzypek, Precalculus: A Unit Circle Approach 3/e. This titlespecific access kit provides access to the Ratti/McWaters/Skrzypek, Precalculus: A Unit Circle Approach 3/e accompanying MyLab course ONLY.
