Hornsby/Lial/Rockswold’s Graphical Approach covers functions through a consistent four part analytical process that asks students to 1) Examine the nature of the graph 2) Solve a typical equation analytically and graphically 3) Solve the related inequality analytically and graphically, and finally, 4) Apply analytic and graphical methods to solve an application of that class of function.
