Opportunities for mathematics education. I do not know why and don’t know if there exists a proof as to why this is. It really explains how to develop the theory of trigonometry without any transcendental function like sine and cosine. It also helps the reader to appreciate the proofs of the theorems without resorting to the computer, especially in the latter part of this book.
Emmy marked it as to-read Aug 05, I don’t know if it is the way that it is written or because I’m just a lay person with no substantial math background so I’m missing some of the context that a math grad would automatically pick up on.
