Summary

Cynthia Young's 3rd Edition of  Trigonometry focuses on revisions and additions including hundreds of new exercises, more opportunities to use technology, and themed modeling projects that help connect content to real-world issues. The text builds upon the previous two editions with more in-depth and enhanced coverage on ways to help overcome common learning barriers in trigonometry and build confidence for readers. The text features truly unique, strong pedagogy and as with the previous two issues, is written in a clear, single voice.
