About

Overview

James Stewart, author of the best-selling calculus textbook series, and his coauthors Lothar Redlin and Saleem Watson, wrote TRIGONOMETRY to address a problem they frequently saw in their classrooms: Students who attempted to memorize facts and mimic examples—and who were not prepared to "think mathematically." With this text, Stewart, Redlin and Watson help students learn to think mathematically and develop true, lasting problem-solving skills. Patient, clear, and accurate, TRIGONOMETRY consistently illustrates how useful and applicable trigonometry is to real life.

Additional Product Information

Features and Benefits

  • TRIGONOMETRY is the only text on the market that is structured so professors can begin with either the unit circle approach or the right triangle approach. The different approaches lead to different applications: the unit circle approach is used in modeling harmonic motion and the right triangle approach is used in measuring distances (for example, measuring the distance to the sun or nearby stars depends on right triangle trigonometry).
  • The authors make use of the graphing calculator whenever appropriate. Subsections, examples, and exercises that deal with graphing devices are labeled with an icon so that those who prefer not to use the graphing calculator can easily skip this material. For those students that use a graphing calculator, they are given a better understanding of how the calculator can work as an aid in solving problems. For students who do not use a graphing calculator, the material is presented optionally.
  • Each chapter ends with a FOCUS ON MODELING section that illustrates modeling techniques as well as how trigonometry can be applied to model real-life situations. These sections, as well as others, are devoted to teaching students how to create their own mathematical models, rather than using prefabricated formulas.
  • Real-World Applications from engineering, physics, chemistry, business, biology, environmental studies, and other fields demonstrate how trigonometry is used to model real-life situations.
  • Each exercise set ends with Discovery-Discussion problems that encourage students to first experiment with the concepts developed in the section and then to write about what they have learned, rather than simply look for an answer.
  • Review Sections and Chapter Tests are found at the end of each chapter. These are designed to help students gauge their progress. Brief answers to the odd-numbered exercises in each section, and to all questions in the Chapter Tests, are given at the back of the book.

What's New

  • Exercise Sets: More than 20% of the exercises are new, including new Concept Exercises for each section. Key exercises are now linked to examples in the text to help students better understand the concepts involved as they do their homework.
  • Book Companion Website: A new website, www.stewartmath.com, contains Discovery Projects for each chapter and Focus on Problem Solving sections that highlight different problem-solving principles outlined in the Prologue. Though the book itself introduces the notion of problem solving to the student, the website provides reinforcement of that skill.
  • Chapter 1 Functions and Graphs: This chapter has been rewritten to focus more sharply on the fundamental and crucial concept of function. A new section entitled "Getting Information from the Graph of a Function" encourages students to think of the graph of a function as a tool for understanding the behavior of the function.
  • Chapter 2 Trigonometric Functions: Unit Circle Approach This chapter includes a new section on inverse trigonometric functions and their graphs. Introducing this topic here reinforces the "function" concept in the context of trigonometry.
  • Chapter 3 Trigonometric Functions: Right Triangle Approach This chapter includes a new section on inverse trigonometric functions and right triangles (Section 6.4), which is needed for applying the Laws of Sines and Cosines in the following section, as well as for solving trigonometric equations in Chapter 4. Whether or not you cover inverse trig functions in your course, complete content on this important topic is provided, better preparing students for calculus.
  • Chapter 4 Analytic Trigonometry: This chapter has been completely revised. There are two new sections on trigonometric equations (Sections 4.4 and 4.5). The material on this topic (formerly in Section 4.5) has been expanded and revised, and the addition of more examples helps students better grasp this difficult topic.
  • Chapter 5 Polar Coordinates and Parametric Equations: This chapter is now more sharply focused on the concept of a coordinate system. The section on parametric equations is new to this chapter. The material on vectors is now in its own chapter. Separating the parametric equations from vectors better distinguishes these topics for students. This is of particular importance since both topics are likely to be new to students in Trigonometry.
  • Chapter 6 Vectors in Two and Three Dimensions: This is a new chapter with a new Focus on Modeling section. By isolating the vectors coverage, students are provided with more examples and more detailed coverage of vectors—an exciting topic that they may be covering concurrently in physics classes.
  • Chapter 7 Analytic Geometry: This chapter is now more closely devoted to the topic of analytic geometry, especially the conic sections; the section on parametric equations has been moved to Chapter 5. Students likely did not cover conics in the college algebra course they took prior to trigonometry, so the expanded conics coverage provides them with the visual understanding of often-abstract geometric forms.
  • Chapter 8 Exponential and Logarithmic Functions: The material on the natural exponential function is now in a separate section. Expanded coverage provides the students with more examples for help with homework exercise.
