This text provides a supportive environment to help students successfully learn the content of a standard trigonometry course. By incorporating interactive learning techniques, the Aufmann team helps students to better understand concepts, focus their studying habits, and obtain greater mathematical success. Prerequisite review is included in the textbook (and supporting materials) so that instructors can spend less time covering review material and students can still fill in the gaps in their mathematical knowledge."Integrated Review Notes" provided next to examples throughout the text help students see the key prerequisite skills used within the example. For added convenience, these example-specific notes direct students to the page(s) where they can practice and review skills."Prepare for the Next Section Exercises," found at the end of the exercise sets, have been carefully selected to review the prerequisite skills students will need in the next section. Next to each exercise is a reference to a section of the text where students can go to review topics they don't understand.To create a link between the algebraic and visual representations of a solution, increase students' understanding of the concept presented, and accommodate different learning styles, the authors have provided "both an algebraic solution and a graphical solution" (represented by either a coordinate grid graph or a graphing calculator screen) for appropriate examples."Focus on Problem Solving" at the beginning of every chapter reviews and demonstrates various strategies used by successful problem-solvers.Special modeling sections throughout the text, which rely heavily on the graphing calculator, provide anopportunity to motivate students with relevant, modern applications. These special sections introduce the idea of mathematical modeling of data through linear, quadratic, exponential, logarithmic, and logistic regression. Students are often required to work with tables, graphs, and charts using data drawn from a variety of disciplines.Rich exercise sets and applications offer instructors a wide range of options when assigning homework, including many that involve real data. When appropriate, the end of a section presents applications that require students to use problem-solving strategies along with the skills covered in that section to solve practical problems. Exercises encourage problem solving, skill building, group work, writing, and appropriate use of graphing calculators."Connecting Concepts" exercises found in every exercise set extend some of the concepts discussed in the section and require students to connect ideas studied earlier with new concepts. These more involved, multi-step exercises help students practice problems involving multiple concepts, similar to those found on many exams.

Richard Nation is Professor of Mathematics at Palomar College. He is the co-author of several Aufmann titles.

Vernon Barker has retired from Palomar College where he was Professor of Mathematics. He is a co-author on the majority of Aufmann texts, including the best-selling developmental paperback series.
