Applied College Algebra and Trigonometry
This reader-friendly book balances solid math instruction with real-world examples and applications for various disciplines. It encourages independent problem-solving and instills reader confidence with clearly illustrated concepts, procedure boxes that present a step-by-step approach to problem solving, and "verbal nudges," similar to those used by teachers in the classroom, to help readers avoid common pitfalls and mistakes as well as reminding them of concepts they have already mastered.
