For courses in Trigonometry which requires student use of a graphing calculator.Using the graphing utility to enhance mathematics, not replace it, this text approaches technology as a tool to solve problems, motivate concepts, and explore ideas. Many problems are solved using both algebra and a graphing utility, with the benefits of each illustrated. Throughout, applications and examples using real data enable students to make connections between the mathematics learned and familiar situations. The authors' user-friendly approach helps students develop the skills needed to succeed in subsequent mathematics more
