ABOUT THE BOOK

Precalculus: Building Concepts and Connections, 2nd Edition, combines mathematical rigor with an engaging writing style to maximize student success.  Innovative features, such as Just In Time Exercises, Notes, and Observations, provide connections between various concepts. Detailed examples give clear explanations and often use Just In Time references to reinforce algebraic skills. Technology and applications are incorporated throughout, and engaging exercise sets with a variety of  problems round out the text. 

 

Features

Progress Check

This new self-study feature allows students to get as much practice as they want on the examples in the ebook. Each Practice Example correlates with the examples from each section of the eBook. The system automatically generates new problems, so students can do each one of them until they feel confident that they understand it. Everything is recorded in a section-by-section Progress Report to help students keep track of their progress.

Integrated with WolframAlpha

WolframAlpha is integrated throughout the book. Click the red icon next to selected example, and it will preload that specific example in WolframAlpha so that you can adjust the parameters, explore the results, and see a step-by-step solution. No separate license necessary!

MathTV Video Tutorials

There's a video tutorial for every single example in the book—and each one is worked out by multiple math tutors. Students benefit from seeing their peers work a problem. The nuances of the slightly different approaches to solving a problem really helps students, and gives them confidence that they can do it too!

QR Codes

Unique technology embedded in each exercise set allows students with a smart phone or other mobile device to view our video tutorials without being tied to a computer.

MathTV.com- Every example in every XYZ Textbook is worked on video by multiple video tutors. Students benefit from seeing multiple approaches and gain confidence in learning from their peers. You can find the MathTV videos in the XYZ eBook.
