## Description

**Michael Sullivan’s** time-tested approach focuses students on the fundamental skills they need for the course: *preparing *for class, *practicing *with homework, and *reviewing* the concepts. The **Enhanced with Graphing Utilities Series**has evolved to meet today’s course needs by integrating the usage of graphing calculator, active-learning, and technology in new ways to help students be successful in their course, as well as in their future endeavors.
