The Real Numbers  Functions and Their Graphs  Linear, Quadratic, Polynomial, and Rational Functions  Exponents and Logarithms  Area, e, and the Natural Logarithm  Trigonometric Functions  Applications of Trigonometry  Sequences, Series, and Limits






Designed to be read by students, this bookwritten using Mathematica 6focuses on topics needed for success in calculus, and prepares students for integral calculus. Includes a preface for instructors and stepbystep solutions for oddnumbered exercises so that students can model their own applications of what they’ve learned. In addition, chapter openers and endofchapter summaries highlight the material to be studied. The author, Sheldon Axler, is the recipient of a Mathematical Association of America award in expository writing.
