Overview

PRECALCULUS: FUNCTIONS AND GRAPHS, 12th Edition, retains the features that have made it so popular: clear exposition, uncluttered layout, and applications-rich exercise sets. The excellent, time-tested problems have been widely praised for their consistency and appropriate level of difficulty for precalculus students. This product also provides calculator examples, including specific keystrokes that show how to use graphing calculators to solve problems more quickly. This edition features updated topical references and data. Mathematically sound, it effectively prepares students for further courses in mathematics.

Earl Swokowski, late of Marquette University

Earl Swokowski authored multiple editions of numerous successful textbooks, including CALCULUS; CALCULUS OF A SINGLE VARIABLE; FUNDAMENTALS OF COLLEGE ALGEBRA; and PRECALCULUS: FUNCTIONS AND GRAPHS, all published by Cengage Learning Brooks/Cole.

Jeffery Cole, Anoka-Ramsey Community College

Jeffery A. Cole has been teaching mathematics and computer science at Anoka-Ramsey Community College since fall 1981. He started working on the Swokowski series of precalculus texts in 1985 as an ancillary author, and has been a co-author since 1991. His contribution to the Swokowski texts also includes joining the revision team of the calculus text in 1989.

WebAssign is a flexible and fully customizable online instructional solution that puts powerful tools in the hands of teachers, enabling you to realize your teaching goals and instantly assess individual student performance to help students learn math, not just do online homework.

  • A chapter on Limits (Chapter 11).
  • An Appendix V that features proofs on Chapter 11.
