Precalculus Plus Integrated Review and Software

Precalculus Plus Integrated Review

This title provides students with curriculum-level precalculus skills integrated with applicable review lessons. The course offers lessons familiar to students entering from a college algebra course, preparing them for the more advanced topics they will cover in a subsequent calculus course—while also targeting specific remediation needs for just-in-time supplementation of foundational concepts.

Updates to the new edition include more robust content; contextualized review lessons; and an updated Guided Notebook with Strategies for Academic Success, Math@Work projects, and video enhancements.
