Essentials of Trigonometry  With CD (4TH 06 Edition)by Karl J. Smith
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Publisher Comments:Easytounderstand, ESSENTIALS OF TRIGONOMETRY starts with the rightangle definition, and applications involving the solution of right triangles to help you 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 realworld applications. The accompanying CDROM and online tutorials give you the practice you need to improve your grade in the course.
Book News Annotation:This firstyear textbook introduces angles, radian measure, graphs of trigonometric functions, trigonometric equations, oblique triangles and vectors, complex numbers, and polar coordinates. The fourth edition provides uniform problem sets at the end of each chapter and adds appendices on functions, graphs, and sets of numbers. The CDROM contains video instruction and a graphing calculator tutorial.

About the AuthorKarl Smith is professor emeritus at Santa Rosa Junior College in Santa Rosa, California. He has written over 36 mathematics textbooks and believes that students can learn mathematics if it is presented to them through the use of concrete examples designed to develop original thinking, abstraction, and problemsolving skills. Over one million students have learned mathematics from Karl Smith's textbooks.
