This no-nonsense guide provides students and self-learners with a clear and readable study of trigonometry's most important ideas. Tim Hill's distraction-free approach combines decades of tutoring experience with the methods of his old-school Russian math teachers. The result: learn in a few days what conventional schools stretch into months.

  • Teaches general principles that can be applied to a wide variety of problems.
  • Avoids the mindless and excessive routine computations that characterize conventional textbooks.
  • Treats trigonometry as a logically coherent discipline, not as a disjointed collection of techniques.
  • Restores proofs to their proper place to remove doubt, convey insight, and encourage precise logical thinking.
  • Omits digressions, excessive formalities, and repetitive exercises.
  • Covers all the trigonometry needed to take a calculus course.
  • Includes detailed solutions to all problems.
