Emphazing computation skills, ideas and problem solving, rather than mathematical theory, this text omits most derivations and proofs, except where significant. The function concept is introduced and developed from several points of view and is motivated through illustrations and examples.

There are over 5,800 carefully selected and graded problems that are divided into A-, B- and C- levels of difficulty in each exercise set. Exercise sets are found at the end of all sections.
There are a sufficient variety and number of applications in the text to convince even the most skeptical students that mathematics is really useful in everyday life. Found at the end of many exercise sets.
Explore-Discuss Boxes/Group Activity: These boxes are interspersed at appropriate places to encourage a student to think about a relationship or process before a result is stated or to investigate additional consequences of a development in the text. This material can also be used as an in-class or out-of-class group activity. An additional group activity is located at the end of every chapter before the chapter review.
Problems requiring the use of a graphing calculator are included in many exercise sets. These problems are clearly marked and may be omitted without loss of continuity if desired. These problems are located throughout the text, starting in Chapter 2.
The text includes a wide variety of precalculus topics arranged so that many of the chapters after the fourth are independent of one another. The depth and completeness of coverage of most topics exceeds that found in most competing texts.
