|A text designed to prepare students for calculus, with chapters on functions, powers, polynomials, logs, exponentials, and trigonometry. Models a new approach to learning through non-traditional homework (explanatory rather than computational); an emphasis on connections to lower- and higher-level material; on learning how the symbolic language of math is used; on graphs, their interpretation, and the effective use of graphics calculators; and on mathematical skills not tied to a single generation of calculators.
