# Geometry and trigonometry for calculus

Wiley, May 2, 1975 - Mathematics - 424 pages
Geometry & Trigonometry for Calculus By Peter H. Selby If you need geometry and trigonometry as a tool for technical work ? as a refresher course ? or as a prerequisite for calculus, here?s a quick, efficient way for you to learn it! With this book, you can teach yourself the fundamentals of plane geometry, trigonometry, and analytic geometry ? and learn how these topics relate to what you already know about algebra and what you?d like to know about calculus. You?ll work your way through geometry, numerical trigonometry, methods of trigonometric analysis, analytics, and limits?all the way up to the "front door" of calculus. Geometry and Trigonometry for Calculus is one of the Wiley Self-Teaching Guides. It?s been tested, rewritten, and retested until we?re sure you can teach yourself the concepts of geometry and trigonometry. And it?s programmed?so you work at your own pace. No prerequisites are needed. Objectives and self-tests tell you how you?re doing and allow you to skip ahead or find extra help if you need it. Frequent reviews and practice exercises reinforce what you learn.
