Precalculus – John W Coburn – 2nd Edition


Three components contribute to a theme sustained throughout the Coburn Series: that of laying a firm foundation, building a solid framework, and providing strong connections. Not only does Coburn present a sound problem-solving to teach students to recognize a problem, organize a procedure, and formulate a solution, the text encourages students to see beyond in an effort to gain a greater understanding of the big ideas behind concepts.

Written in a readable, yet mathematically mature manner appropriate for college level students, Coburn’s uses narrative, extensive examples, and a range of exercises to connect seemingly disparate topics into a cohesive whole. Coburn’s hallmark are born out of the author’s extensive experiences in and outside the classroom, and appeal to the vast diversity of students and teaching methods in this area.

Benefiting from the feedback of hundreds of instructors and students across the country, second edition, continues to emphasize connections in order to improve the level of student engagement in and increase their chances of success in college algebra.
