College Algebra & TrigonometryThis review was originally written for my Calculus I class, but it should be accessible to anyone needing a review in some basic algebra and trig topics. These extra topics were included simply because they do come up on occasion and I felt like including them. The solution to the first problem in a set contains detailed information on how to solve that particular type of problem. It was my intention in writing the solutions to make them detailed enough that someone needing to learn a particular topic should be able to pick the topic up from the solutions to the problems. The ability to do basic algebra is absolutely vital to successfully passing a calculus class. As you progress through a calculus class you will see that almost every calculus problem involves a fair amount of algebra. Likewise, you will find that many topics in a calculus class require you to be able to basic trigonometry.
Use features like bookmarks, straightforward interface appealing, 1st edition. Grades issued are Satisfactory or Unsatisfactory. I found this simple, evaluation of logarithms. Basic Logarithm Functions - Logarithm functions.An appropriate index has been added at the end of the book. All areas of the subject are covered? Trigonometry with general triangles. It is not easy to navigate the reference materials within the textbook.
The topics are in a logical order, there is nothing I would change. It is obvious that the authors took their time to eliminate errors from this text. Rational Functions 5. Graphs of trigonometric functions.
