Taking a unit-circle first approach, this proven book helps students learn, understand, and appreciate trigonometry without compromising mathematical integrity. The book incorporates the use of the graphing calculator (although use of the graphing calculator is not required). Numerous application problems are used throughout to help motivate students toward success in learning trigonometry.
