Larson's PRECALCULUS HYBRID, Ninth Edition, delivers the same sound, consistently structured explanations and exercises of mathematical concepts as his market-leading hardcover text, PRECALCULUS, Ninth Edition, combined with a briefer paperback format that engages students online with Enhanced WebAssign®. The HYBRID demonstrates Larson's commitment to revolutionizing the way instructors teach and students learn material by moving all the end-of-section exercises from the text online as well as incorporating more real-world applications, ongoing review, and innovative technology. Each new Larson HYBRID includes immediate student access to Enhanced WebAssign®. The ninth edition features "How Do You See It?" exercises that give students practice applying the concepts, and new "Summarize" features, "Checkpoint" problems, and a Companion Website reinforce understanding of the skill sets to help students better prepare for tests. Enhanced WebAssign® offers fully integrated content from the text, with the addition of end-of-section problems and chapter tests, as well as problem-specific videos, animations, and lecture videos.
