Written by Grand Valley State University professors Ted Sundstrom and Steven Schlicker, this trigonometry textbook starts with a circular function approach to trigonometry and transitions to the study of triangle trigonometry, vectors, trigonomic identities, and complex numbers.

Each chapter begins with a series of “focus questions” for students to have a goal as they study the material. Progress checks throughout each section help students ensure they are understanding the material as they progress through the text. Additionally, an answer key helps ensure self-study students are able to correctly complete the practice problems.
