About

Overview

This Alternate edition of this market-leading text eliminates the chapter on EXPONENTIAL AND LOGARITHMIC FUNCTIONS while it continues to provide students and instructors with sound, consistently structured explanations of the mathematical concepts. Designed for a one-term course that prepares students to study calculus, the new Eighth Edition retains the features that have made Trigonometry a complete solution for both students and instructors: interesting applications, cutting-edge design, and innovative technology combined with an abundance of carefully written exercises.
