Overview

DeMYSTiFieD is your solution for tricky subjects like trigonometry

If you think a Cartesian coordinate is something from science fiction or a hyperbolic tangent is an extreme

exaggeration, you need Trigonometry DeMYSTiFieD, Second Edition, to unravel this topic's fundamental concepts and theories at your own pace.



This practical guide eases you into "trig," starting

with angles and triangles. As you progress, you will

master essential concepts such as mapping, functions,

vectors, and more. You will learn to transform polar coordinates as well as apply trigonometry in the real world. Detailed examples make it easy to understand the material, and end-of-chapter quizzes and a final exam help reinforce key ideas.



It's a no-brainer! You'll learn about:


  • Right triangles
  • Circular functions
  • Hyperbolic functions
  • Inverse functions
  • Geometrical optics
  • Infinite-series expansions
  • Trigonometry on a sphere



Simple enough for a beginner, but challenging enough for an advanced student, Trigonometry DeMYSTiFieD,

Second Edition, helps you master this essential subject.

    Chapter 8 - What Just Happened?

    Odd whispers surrounded Ana as she awoke. What was going on? She was in some kind of chair, and she wasn't entirely sure how she'd gotten there. She would open her eyes, but right now she didn't seem to have the energy for even that. What had just happened? <br>
    She wondered if the whispers would tell her more. Her sudden, poundin headache made it hard to focus, but she tried. There two people talking, it seemed. <br>
    "Is she...you know..." <br>
    "Wha...of course not! MAX knows how to get the dose right, he's had to do that before." <br>
    A one-second flashback hit her like a splash of cold water in her face. "Self-defense protocol activated." Of course. The one-second flashback, it seemed, had been enough to trigger the rest of her memories from the last half-hour or so. The elevator. The phone. All of it. <br>
    "So, do you think she works for...them?"
    "Ask her when she wakes up, not me. How can I know?"
    "Just saying. How long will we have to wait before she comes to?" <br>
    Then came a new voice, strange and robotic. The voice from the computer room. <br>
    "Agent C, Agent Y, have you not realized she is fully awake? She appears to be feigning unconsciousness, though I cannot determine why." <br>
    Ana heard a little scuffling noise, like one had jumped in surprise. <br>
    "Why didn't you say that before, MAX? How long has she been listening?" <br>
    "Only about thirty seconds."<br>
    'They're talking about me...' she realized. Then the sarcastic little voice inside her began a rant about her stupidity in not realizing this earlier, which she ignored. No point in pretending now...she opened her eyes. <br>
    Ana was in a metal chair, bound in place by unbreakable iron cuffs. Two people- and one computer screen- were staring at her with suspicion and general hostility. The people were kids, about her age actually. Not that you'd know from the way they were eyeing her. She wondered if they were 'Agent C' and 'Agent Y'. <br>
    The girl made a gesture to her partner, something like 'let me handle this'. Then she glared at Ana for no apparent reason, before following her line of sight to the screen at the back of the room. The girl cleared her throat, so loudly Ana snapped straight back to looking at her. What was this all about anyway?<br>
    "State your name."<br>
    "Umm....Ana." <br>
    "Is that your real name?" the girl growled.<br>
    "Yes?"<br>
    An eyeroll. "Good. I don't like when people lie about that to me. "<br>
    The boy gave her a cheeky grin."She doesn't care so mush when it's the other way arou-" <br>
    "Oh, shut up." She turned back to Ana. "Now I'm going to ask you some questions...and you better stay truthful as you were about your name, or...."<br>
    "Uh...or what?" she asked, more than a little frightened of this girl now.<br>
    "Just don't lie to me. You will regret it...if you live. " <br>
