• NEW EXERCISES HELP STUDENTS DEVELOP IMPORTANT PROBLEM-SOLVING SKILLS: New Problem-Solving exercises in most sections highlight and apply a specific problem-solving principle from the prologue. More than 20% of the overall exercises are new to this edition.

• NEW REVIEW MATERIAL REINFORCES STUDENT UNDERSTANDING: Updated, effective review material at the end of most chapters now includes a matching exercise to reinforce the fundamental relationship between graphs and equations. This important review also includes a summary of properties and formulas. In addition, a Concept Check provides a step-by-step review of all the main concepts and applications from the chapter.

• NEW DISCOVERY PROJECTS GUIDE STUDENTS IN APPLYING THE CONCEPTS THEY'VE MASTERED: Several new Discovery Projects in this edition feature applications or extensions of the concepts that students have just studied in the text. Discover/Discuss/Prove/Write problems at the end of every section encourage students to develop and strengthen their conceptual, critical-thinking and writing skills.

• NEW REMEDIAL SUPPORT PREPARES STUDENTS FOR SUCCESS: Revisions throughout Chapter P review prerequisites while WebAssign digital resources provide remedial support to address readiness gaps, including the College Math Readiness Bootcamp and Just-in-Time review exercises. This edition also offers an expanded Geometry Review appendix that now highlights main concepts from geometry used in this edition, including congruence, similarity, the Pythagorean Theorem, parallel lines and circles.

• NEW EXPANDED PROBLEMS IN WEBASSIGN INCLUDE MULTIPLE PARTS TO ENSURE UNDERSTANDING: This edition's new online Expanded Problems take understanding well beyond the basic exercises. These problems ask students to show the specific steps of their work or to explain the reasoning behind the answers they've provided.

• NEW CHAPTER UNITES KEY TOPICS: The new Chapter 8, "Polar Coordinates, Parametric Equations, and Vectors," unites the topics under the theme of describing curves and motion in a coordinate plane. The applications in the chapter demonstrate the need for different coordinate systems. In the "Focus on Modeling" section following the chapter, both parametric equations and vectors are used to model the path and velocity of a projectile.

• WEBASSIGN PROVIDES ONLINE TOOLS TO BUILD YOUR STUDENTS’ CONFIDENCE AND ELEVATE PERFORMANCE: This edition's leading WebAssign digital resources provide instant access to expertly designed support for both you and your students. Updated, innovative exercises, "Explore It" interactive learning modules and instructional videos reinforce concepts for students and assist in review.

• "FOCUS ON MODELING" SECTIONS EMPOWER STUDENTS TO APPLY MATHEMATICS: These "Focus on Modeling" sections illustrate modeling techniques as well as how mathematics can be applied to model real-life situations. These sections teach students how to create their own mathematical models rather than use prefabricated formulas.

• REAL-WORLD APPLICATIONS ENGAGE STUDENTS: This title draws upon applications from engineering, physics, chemistry, business, biology, environmental studies and other fields to demonstrate how mathematics is used to model real-life situations. This approach reinforces the relevance and importance of the principles students are learning.

• TRIGONOMETRY APPROACH PROVIDES FLEXIBILITY IN YOUR INSTRUCTION: The chapters on trigonometry (Chs. 5, 6) are written so you have a choice of beginning with either the right triangle approach or the unit circle approach. Each approach to trigonometry is accompanied by the applications appropriate for that approach. Students clearly understand the reasons behind the different approaches to trigonometry.
