This easy-to-understand trigonometry text makes learning trigonometry an engaging, simple process. The book contains many examples that parallel most problems in the problem sets. There are many application problems that show how the concepts can be applied to the world around you, and review problems in every problem set after Chapter 1, which make review part of your daily schedule. If you have been away from mathematics for awhile, study skills listed at the beginning of the first six chapters give you a path to success in the course. Finally, the authors have included some historical notes in case you are interested in the story behind the mathematics you are learning. This text will leave you with a well-rounded understanding of the subject and help you feel better prepared for future mathematics courses.
