Precalculus with Limits: A Graphing Approach, 7th Edition, is an ideal program for high school calculus courses that require the use of a graphing calculator. The quality and quantity of the exercises, combined with interesting applications and innovative resources, make teaching easier and help students succeed. The book achieves accessibility through careful writing and design--including examples with detailed solutions that begin and end on the same page, which maximizes readability. Similarly, side-by-side solutions show algebraic, graphical, and numerical representations of the mathematics and support a variety of learning styles. A new chapter on probability and statistics helps reinforce high school curriculums.
