Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is a new edition of the precalculus text developed by the Consortium based at Harvard University and funded by a National Science Foundation Grant. The text is thought-provoking for well-prepared students while still accessible to students with weaker backgrounds. It provides numerical and graphical approaches as well as algebraic approaches to give students another way of mastering the material. This approach encourages students to persist, thereby lowering failure rates. A large number of real-world examples and problems enable students to create mathematical models that will help them understand the world in which they live.

The focus is on those topics that are essential to the study of calculus and these topics are treated in depth. Linear, exponential, power, and periodic functions are introduced before polynomial and rational functions to take advantage of their use to model physical phenomena. Building on the Consortium's Rule of Four: Each function is represented symbolically, numerically, graphically, and verbally where appropriate.

Synopsis:

The third edition of this ground-breaking text continues the authors' goal - a targeted introduction to precalculus that carefully balances concepts with procedures. Overall, this text is designed to provide a solid foundation to precalculus that focuses on a small number of key topics thereby emphasizing depth of understanding rather than breath of coverage. Developed by the Calculus Consortium, FMC 3e is flexible enough to be thought-provoking for well-prepared students while still remaining accessible to students with weaker backgrounds. As multiple representations encourage students to reflect on the material, each function is presented symbolically, numerically, graphically and verbally (the Rule of Four). Additionally, a large number of real-world applications, examples and problems enable students to create mathematical models that will help them understand and interpret the world in which they live.

Synopsis:

Work more effectively and gauge your progress as you go along with the text!  This Student Study Guide is designed to accompany Connally’s Functions Modeling Change: A Preparation for Calculus, 2nd Edition.  It includes study tips, learning objectives, practice problems, and solutions. The topics are tied directly to the text.

From the Calculus Consortium based at Harvard University, Functions Modeling Change, 2nd Edition prepares readers for the study of calculus, presenting families of functions as models for change.  These materials stress conceptual understanding and multiple ways of representing mathematical ideas.  The focus throughout is on those topics that are essential to the study of calculus and these topics are treated in depth.
