Overview

Engineers trying to learn trigonometry may think they understand a concept but then are unable to apply that understanding when they attempt to complete exercises. This innovative book helps them overcome common barriers to learning the concepts and builds confidence in their ability to do mathematics. The second edition presents new sections on modeling at the end of each chapter as well as new material on Limits and Early Functions. Numerous Parallel Words and Math examples are included that provide more detailed annotations using everyday language. Your Turn exercises reinforce concepts and allow readers to see the connection between the problems and examples. Catch the Mistake exercises also enable them to review answers and find errors in the given solutions. This approach gives them the skills to understand and apply trigonometry.
