CONTEMPORARY TRIGONOMETRY completes Thomas Hungerford's renowned series of precalculus texts. His texts are well respected for their thorough integration of the graphing calculator, clear writing, and outstanding applications problems. Many adopters praise his use of real data in examples and exercises, and they appreciate the flexibility of his books' organization. This new text is accompanied by an outstanding array of innovative supplements that facilitate teaching and enhance learning, such as iLrn—a robust suite of online course management, testing, and tutorial resources for instructor and student, with vMentor live online tutoring. The text also includes the free Interactive Video Skillbuilder CD-ROM with MathCue, and a Book Companion Web Site featuring online graphing calculator resources.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"It is obvious that the author has spent a great deal of time to incorporate technology in an appropriate way. I particularly like the way in which he asks the student to first check graphically the trig identity(s) he/she is trying to prove." "Technology Investigations really help students to have a better and more meaningful understanding of the subject matter. They also help students to have a deeper conceptual understanding." "Both the presentation of the materials and the problem sets are excellent. The text contains outstanding applied problems. Additionally, it contains well thought out 'Discovery Projects.'"

"The use of the calculator investigations/explorations within the text does a very good job of illustrating the algebraic properties or solving techniques that are being discussed. The directions are easy to follow and it is clear as to what the student is actually trying to explore." "I found the text easy to read, there were plenty of examples for the students to use to help guide them with the homework, and the page layouts were neither cluttered nor confusing."
