This major revision prepares students to succeed on the New York State Math A Regents Exam as it is now given. The book places increased emphasis on use of the graphing calculator, and in line with New York State Regents core curriculum, it shows how given problems can be solved in several different ways. The author also includes new Regents question types dealing, for instance, with motion problems and mathematical systems defined by tables. New contextualized word problems further enhance the presentation. The totally rewritten chapter on problem-solving offers students a core set of strategies that apply to a variety of curriculum-related exercises. In addition to subject review, demonstration examples, and practice exercises with answers, the book includes several complete recent Math A Regents exams with answers.
