THE IMPROVE YOUR MATH FLUENCY SERIES OF WORKBOOKS
Chris McMullen, Ph.D.
This series of math workbooks is geared toward practicing essential math skills. As a physics teacher, Dr. McMullen observed that many students lack fluency in fundamental math skills. In an effort to help students of all ages and levels master basic math skills, he published this series of math workbooks on arithmetic, fractions, algebra, trigonometry, and more.

This understanding of trig functions given here makes memorization obsolete, as you understand the logic behind each determination. I am so glad to save this time of memorization and just have a clarity of understanding the unit circle, signs of each sin/cos/tan per quadrant, without wasting any time.
Even the typos are so few that when you find them, its rather apparent, and a fun surprise.
P14 answer key for problem 11 is incorrect,
P 32 has a typo in the additional terms csc, sec, cot
p 96 example 2 defines an angle of 210º in quadrant 2, which is actually in quadrant 3 and will change the sign of the answer
There may be other typos, but that's all I found. It would be nice if the publisher listed on a website so purchasers can correct them before attempting to learn trigonometry from scratch. Its nice for all navigators to receive updates whenever a buoy or an island is incorrectly described on a chart, and so too would this greatly serve the student navigating trigonometry.
Overall a good learning book, just shy of greatness. Has helped me a ton preparing to test out of trig into precalculus and save a whole semester for crucial prerequisites. Thank you author! If anyone knows of any good books for calculus and precalculus, let me know.
The book focuses on special triangles/angles, (0, 30, 45, 60, 90 degrees) so there's no need for a calculator. These can be solved through a little memorization and a piece of paper. Some may argue that only dealing with special triangles is a deficiency, but if you can do the special angles, punching other angle measures into a calculator and obtain the result is a breeze. This book focuses on the concepts and the method of solving. If you get that down you can solve anything else thrown at you.
only reason I didn't get it five stars is because the book could have been a little more detailed.
