Precalculus: An Investigation of Functions (David Lippman, et al)

This book serves as a college-level precalculus and trigonometry textbook. Early introduction and constant reinforcement of problem-solving and mathematical modeling give pupils a strong foundation in the fundamentals of mathematical reasoning.

The book is thorough and well-paced, covers the function concept in full, and incorporates a substantial amount of graphing calculator content to aid students in understanding mathematical concepts.

A study of functions, including an examination of the graphical behaviour, interpretation, and solutions to issues involving linear, polynomial, rational, exponential, and logarithmic functions, takes up the first part of the book. The importance of modelling and interpretation is emphasised, along with the crucial calculus requirements.

Trigonometry is covered in the book's second section. A circle/triangle technique is used to introduce trig. The first chapter introduces identities, which are then brought up again later on. Similar to this, the solution is covered briefly in the second chapter and in greater detail in the third chapter. Similar to the first section of the book, modelling and interpretation are emphasised along with inspiring the concepts.
