In this book, one of the main goals was to make discussions of concepts easier to understand without sacrificing the mathematical soundness of the previous edition. Solutions to many examples have been rewritten so that important steps stand out clearly. More applied problems have been added to stress the usefulness of the subject matter. Exercise sets have also been improved and expanded
Precalculus : functions and graphs by Earl William Swokowski( Book )

49 editions published between 1987 and 2019 in English and held by 565 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Enhanced Edition of Swokowski and Cole's PRECALCULUS: FUNCTIONS AND GRAPHS retains the elements in the Twelfth Edition that have made it so popular with instructors and students alike: clear exposition, an appealing and uncluttered layout, and applications-rich exercise sets. It also features an additional chapter on Limits (Chapter 11) and an Appendix V that includes proofs related to this new chapter. The excellent, time-tested problems have been widely praised for their consistency and their appropriate level of difficulty for precalculus students. The book also provides calculator examples, including specific keystrokes that show students how to use various graphing calculators to solve problems more quickly. This Enhanced Edition features updated topical references and data and continues to be supported by outstanding technology resources. Mathematically sound, this book effectively prepares students for further courses in mathematics

En feuilletant ce livre, le Mathématicien risque de froncer les sourcils. Il dira que la définition d'angle n'est pas formalisée, que la construction des nombres complexes est naïve et qu'il y a des théorèmes sans démonstration. Le fait est que ce livre n'a pas été écrit pour le 0.0001% d'êtres humains qui font des mathématiques leur raison de vivre. Il s'adresse surtout à ceux qui, persuadés dès l'âge le plus tendre que les mathématiques sont une forme extravagante de masochisme, risquent de ne jamais profiter de leur utilité. En le lisant, ils apprendront plusieurs choses. Tout d'abord - et ça ne devrait pas chagriner le Mathématicien - que les mathématiques, dans notre monde, sont omniprésentes. Elles interviennent dans l'estimation du poids des baleines, dans la cure des calculs rénaux, dans le placement de ses économies et dans quelques milliers d'autres situations, bien illustrées par les exercices. Ensuite, ils apprendront trois vérités fondamentales : que certains problèmes ont plusieurs solutions, que certains problèmes n'ont pas de solution et que pour résoudre le même problème, il y a plusieurs méthodes. Finalement, pour peu qu'ils se donnent la peine de faire les exercices, ils apprendront à se débrouiller dans les calculs et à manier des unités de mesure, des ordres de grandeur, des graphiques et des calculatrices. Pour terminer, quelques aspects didactiques réjouissants : pas de verbiage sur l'ensemble vide, pas d'élucubrations sur la dépendance linéaire du vecteur nul, pas de bluff avec des structures abstraites dont on ne donnerait que deux exemples. En somme, aucune des monstruosités qui se sont incrustées dans les programmes de nos écoles. En voyant cela, le Mathématicien arrête de froncer les sourcils. -- 4ème de couverture
