The use of a graphing calculator is integrated throughout most of the text. Students must be able to solve problems using graphing calculator skills as well as techniques involving algebra, geometry, and trigonometry. The instructor will need to use a graphing calculator in some of the daily classroom presentations. Instructors should refer to Common Exams and Course Coordinator, page 33.)
