Fundamentals of Trigonometry 9th Edition

Earl Swokowski, Jeffery A. Cole

  • Published
  • Previous Editions 1993
  • 504 Pages

Overview

Completing the time-proven Swokowski/Cole precalculus series, this book helps students learn, understand, and appreciate trigonometry without compromising mathematical integrity. The book takes a unit-circle first approach to trigonometry and incorporates the use of the graphing calculator. Numerous application problems help motivate students toward success in learning trigonometry.

"One of the best precalculus texts on the market . . . This is a wonderful text. Its strength is in the problems. I love the number and level of applications. The authors have also succeeded in designing a text for the use or non-use of the graphing calculator."
