## Description

The 5th edition of this market-leading text helps instructors instill key algebra and trig concepts and helps students develop critical thinking skills. * Functions Modeling Change, 5th Edition*, is designed to accomplish the main goals of the Precalculus course: to build a solid mathematical foundation and prepare students for Calculus. The authors achieve this by focusing on a small number of key topics, thereby emphasizing depth of understanding rather than breadth of coverage.

*, presents each function 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 relate to the world around them.*
