Algebra and Trigonometry provides a comprehensive exploration of algebraic principles and meets scope and sequence requirements for a typical introductory algebra and trigonometry course. The modular approach and the richness of content ensures that the book meets the needs of a variety of courses. Algebra and Trigonometry offers a wealth of examples with detailed, conceptual explanations, building a strong foundation in the material before asking students to apply what they’ve learned. Coverage and Scope In determining the concepts, skills, and topics to cover, we engaged dozens of highly experienced instructors with a range of student audiences. The resulting scope and sequence proceeds logically while allowing for a significant amount of flexibility in instruction. Chapters 1 and 2 provide both a review and foundation for study of functions that begins in Chapter 3. The authors recognize that while some institutions may find this material a prerequisite, other institutions have told us that they have a cohort that needs the prerequisite skills built into the course. • Chapter 1: Prerequisites • Chapter 2: Equations and Inequalities Chapters 3-6: The Algebraic Functions • Chapter 3: Functions Preface 1 • Chapter 4: Linear Functions • Chapter 5: Polynomial and Rational Functions • Chapter 6: Exponential and Logarithm Functions Chapters 7-10: A Study of Trigonometry • Chapter 7: The Unit Circle: Sine and Cosine Functions • Chapter 8: Periodic Functions • Chapter 9: Trigonometric Identities and Equations • Chapter 10: Further Applications of Trigonometry Chapters 11-13: Further Study in Algebra and Trigonometry • Chapter 11: Systems of Equations and Inequalities • Chapter 12: Analytic Geometry • Chapter 13: Sequences, Probability, and Counting Theory
