Gain a solid understanding of the principles of trigonometry and how these concepts apply to real life with McKeague/Turner's TRIGONOMETRY. This book's proven approach presents contemporary concepts in brief, manageable sections using current, detailed examples and interesting applications. Captivating illustrations drawn from Lance Armstrong's cycling success, the Ferris wheel, and even the human cannonball show trigonometry in action. Unique Historical Vignettes offer a fascinating glimpse at how many of the central ideas in trigonometry began.
