Precalculus with Trigonometry helps thoroughly prepare students for success in calculus. It supports teaching with a coherent sequence of topics, strong concept development, and a student-friendly presentation.

Rich and varied Problem Sets provide tools to bolster students’ mathematical skills, train them to think more deeply about concepts, and make interdisciplinary connections.

The book provides a flexible development of chapters. After an introduction to transformations of functions and their use as mathematical models in Chapter 1, you can:

  • either continue to study elementary functions in Chapters 2-4
  • or go directly to the study of periodic functions in Chapters 5-9


You are free to choose topics for the rest of the course, depending on the specifications for the course and your students’ needs. Semesters could be reversed if your course requires trigonometry in the first semester.
