Intended for precalculus courses requiring a graphing calculator, Functions and Change emphasizes the application of mathematics to real problems students encounter each day. Applications from a variety of disciplines, including Astronomy, Biology, and the Social Sciences, make concepts interesting for students who have difficulty with more theoretical coverage of mathematics. In addition to these meaningful applications, the authorsa easy-to-read writing style allows students to see mathematics as a descriptive problem-solving tool. An extended version of the successful Functions and Change: A Modeling Approach to College Algebra, this text includes three chapters of trigonometry.
