precalculus 6th edition


The ability to solve problems is a highly prized skill in many aspects of our lives; it is certainly an important part of any mathematics course. There are no hard and fast rules that
will ensure success in solving problems. However, in this Prologue we outline some general steps in the problem-solving process and we give principles that are useful in solving certain problems. These steps and principles are just common sense made explicit.
They have been adapted from George Polya’s insightful book How To Solve It.
