Trigonometry (ISBN10: 0534380271; ISBN13: 9780534380274)

ISBN10: 0534380271

Summary: James Stewart, the author of the best-selling calculus texts, along with two of his former Ph.D. students, Lothar Redlin and Saleem Watson, collaborated in writing this book to address a problem they frequently saw in their calculus courses. Many students were not prepared to "think mathematically" but attempted to memorize facts and mimic examples. This trigonometry text has been designed specifically to help students learn to think mathematically and to d moreevelop true problem-solving skills. Patient, clear, and accurate, this text consistently illustrates how useful and applicable trigonometry is to real life.


  • The text is structured so professors can begin with either the unit circle approach or the right triangle approach. This option is unique in this market.
  • Each approach to trigonometry is accompanied by the applications appropriate for that approach, clarifying the reasons for different approaches to trigonometry.
  • The authors make use of the graphing calculator whenever appropriate. Subsections, examples, and exercises that deal with graphing devices are labeled with an icon so that those who prefer not to use the graphing calculator can easily skip this material.
  • Each chapter ends with a FOCUS ON MODELING section that illustrates modeling techniques as well as how trigonometry can be applied to model real-life situations. These sections, as well as others, are devoted to teaching students how to create their own mathematical models, rather than using prefabricated formulas.
  • Real-World Applications from engineering, physics, chemistry, business, biology, environmental studies, and other fields demonstrate how trigonometry is used to model real-life situations.
  • MATHEMATICS IN THE MODERN WORLD vignettes show that mathematics is a living science crucial to the scientific and technological progress of recent times, as well as to the social, behavioral, and life sciences.
  • Each exercise set ends with Discovery - Discussion problems that encourage students to first experiment with the concepts developed in the section and then to write about what they have learned, rather than simply look for an answer.
  • Special projects in each chapter are designed to engage students and make them active learners by having them work (perhaps in groups) on extended projects that give a feeling of substantial accomplishment when completed.
  • Review Sections and Chapter Tests are found at the end of each chapter. These are designed to help students gauge their progress. Brief answers to the odd-numbered exercises in each section, and to all questions in the Chapter Tests, are given at the back of the book. less
