Dave's Short Course in Trigonometry
by David E. Joyce
Publisher: Clark University 2002
This website is a short introduction to Trigonometry by a professor at Clark University. It is very easy to follow, is full of animations and study problems for the reader to work through. These notes are more of an introduction and guide than a full course. You should already be familiar with algebra and geometry before learning trigonometry. From algebra, you should be comfortable with manipulating algebraic expressions and solving equations. From geometry, you should know about similar triangles, the Pythagorean theorem, and a few other things, but not a great deal.

The material is arranged in such a way that the first six chapters give the essentials of a course in numerical trigonometry and logarithmic computation. The remainder of the theory usually given in the longer courses is in the last two chapters.

Contents: Definitions. The Figures of Trigonometry; Measurement of Angles; Trigonometrical Ratios; Acute Angle; Trigonometrical Ratios of Certain Angles; Practical Applications; On the Relations between the Trigonometric Ratios; and more.

The distinguishing features of this book are: a concise presentation of the fundamental part of plane trigonometry up to the solution of triangles; the use of five-place logarithms; a chapter on spherical trigonometry; a chapter on applications.
Book 1 is pre-calculus trigonometry. We assume the student is relatively new to algebra and do algebra step by step. Many of the pages have closely related free/YouTube videos at the Khan Academy. Many students find the video presentation helpful.
