The Right Tools to Drive Your Success

Dugopolski’s Precalculus: Functions and Graphs, Fourth Edition gives students the essential strategies they need to make the transition to calculus. Along the way, students see how the algebra connects to their future calculus courses, with tools like Foreshadowing Calculus and Concepts of Calculus. The author’s emphasis on problem solving and critical thinking is enhanced by a new MyMathLab course, where  students will find new Video Assessment questions  tied to section lecture videos; Getting Ready material to help learn necessary prerequisite skills; Guided Visualizations, and more!
