Overview


James Stewart, the author of the best-selling calculus texts, along with two of his former Ph.D. students, Lothar Redlin and Saleem Watson, collaborated in writing this book to address a problem they frequently saw in their calculus courses. Many students were not prepared to "think mathematically" but attempted to memorize facts and mimic examples. This trigonometry text has been designed specifically to help students learn to think mathematically and to develop true problem-solving skills. Patient, clear, and accurate, this text consistently illustrates how useful and applicable trigonometry is to real life.
