David H. Collingwood, K. David Prince, and Matthew M. Conroy wrote:Why are we using this text?

Prior to 1990, the performance of a student in precalculus at the University of Washington was not a predictor of success in calculus. For this reason, the mathematics department set out to create a new course with a specific set of goals in mind:

• A review of the essential mathematics needed to succeed in calculus.

• An emphasis on problem solving, the idea being to gain both experience and confidence in working with a particular set of mathematical tools.

This text was created to achieve these goals and the 2004-05 academic year marks the eleventh year in which it has been used. Several thousand students have successfully passed through the course.
