If you are an instructor and are using this book with your class, please drop us an email so we can track use and keep you updated with changes.

It is with this mentality in mind that I'm pursuing my interests in math not only to satisfy my beliefs of me being an intellectual, but also to expand my horizons one step at a time. In all honesty, I've come to find math as an entirely separate world of logic and possibility rather than a straight shot to success and opportunity. I do, however, have the motivation to pick up a book, read through it, understand it, and teach myself on my own time. In addition to the paper homework sets, algorithmetically generated online homework is available as part of a complete course shell package, which also includes a sample syllabus, teacher notes with lecture examples, sample quizzes and exams, printable classwork sheets and handouts, and chapter review problems. Overall very good selection of topics, coherent, includes many engaging visual features and excellent real world applications. Click here to Ask AoPS!

In all honesty, I've come to find math as an entirely separate world of logic and possibility rather than a straight shot to success and opportunity. Sullivan's Precalculus is a nice middle-of-the-road solution, as it pushes learners to prepare themselves for more difficult material while also gently forcing them to brush up on things they should already know.

Section 3. As with all of the books in Art of Problem Solving's Introduction and Intermediate series, Precalculus is structured to inspire the reader to explore and develop new ideas.
