Precalculus presents the course as it was intended to be taught, providing students with an integrated review of algebra and trigonometry while focusing on essential calculus concepts. Faires and DeFranza wrote this book because they believe students too often leave a precalculus class unprepared to go on to calculus. Although students who complete a precalculus course generally have had plenty of algebra and trigonometry review, they often lack the grounding in analysis and graphing necessary to make the transition to calculus. Faires and DeFranza's PRECALCULUS concentrates on teaching the essentials of what a student needs to fulfill their precalculus requirement and to fully prepare them to succeed in calculus. This streamlined text provides all the mathematics that students need--it doesn't bog them down in review, or overwhelm them with too much, too soon. And the authors have been careful to keep this book, unlike many of the precalculus books on the market, at a length that can be covered in one term.
