Algebra and Trigonometry
by Paul Sisson
Algebra and Trigonometry is thoughtfully written with an emphasis on connecting mathematics to the realworld. The content of each chapter is introduced using historical context as a hook, and strategically embedded technology notes ensure students become confident in the use of modern technologies. Expansive exercise sets provide ample opportunity to develop fluency through practice while building conceptual understanding using a variety of tasks from skill and applicationbased assessments to critical thinking challenges. Chapter tests and projects ensure students can demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of the curriculum.
This title begins by introducing the student to the concepts of elementary functions and their properties, and then gradually builds the foundation of exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions, the latter of which are developed using both right triangles and the unit circle. Additional topics include polar and parametric equations, vectors in the plane, hyperbolic functions, conic sections, systems of equations, sequences, and series. This title is suitable for college algebra, trigonometry, and precalculus courses.
