Intended for the freshman market, this book is known for its student-friendly approach. It starts with the right angle definition, and applications involving the solution of right triangles, to help students investigate and understand the trigonometric functions, their graphs, their relationships to one another, and ways in which they can be used in a variety of real-world applications. The book is not dependent upon a graphing calculator.
