Brings to life many of the characters who played a role in the development of the Pythagorean theorem--from the ancient Babylonians and Pythagoras to Albert Einstein and modern-day mathematicians--in a history that provides a fascinating backdrop to an enduring mathematical legacy.

If you don't get how to calculate Pythagoras and Trig, then this book is for you. This book explains these topics in simple words so anyone can get it. There are some practice questions in each section to get you started.

Maths does not have to be difficult. This book, complete with exercises and answers, forms a course which will take you from beginner or intermediate level to being a confident mathematician. This book includes: simple step-by-step explanations, to help you grasp new topics or those that have previously confused you; practice questions throughout, to help you embed your learning and improve your confidence; and end of chapter summaries, to help you remember the key points you've learned - all in one great-value book, so you don't need any separate workbooks or coursebooks. Chapters include: number; angles; fractions; two-dimensional shapes; decimals; statisticsl directed numbers; graphs; measurement; perimeter and area; algebraic expressions; approximations; equations; percentages; formulae; circles; probability; three-dimensional shapes; ratio and proportion; pythagoras' theorem and trigonometry; indices and standard form. ABOUT THE SERIES The Complete Introduction series from Teach Yourself is the ultimate one-stop guide for anyone wanting a comprehensive and accessible entry point into subjects as diverse as philosophy, mathematics, psychology, Shakespeare and practical electronics. Loved by students and perfect for general readers who simply want to learn more about the world around them, these books are your first choice for discovering something new.

Having difficulty with Pythagoras' Theorem or Trigonometry? Do you want an easy to follow step-by-step guide? This Easy Steps Math Pythagoras and Trigonometry book has been written to explain these topics in an easy to understand way. The language used is fully explained and simple so that students just starting to learn these concepts can follow along. It is written for those wanting to learn how to do the calculations and not just complete question after question. All explanations are set out in a step-by-step fashion, which allows for easy following. The first part of this book looks at Pythagoras' Theorem and explains topics required to understand this and uses examples to explain the ideas. The second part focuses on Trigonometry. Questions are included for practice and answers are in the back. Topics include: Surds, Pythagors' Theorem basics, Pythagorean Triples, Applications of Pythagoras' Theorem, Trigonometry Basics, Finding Side lengths, Finding Angles, Bearings, The Rule of Sine and The rule of Cosine, and more. If any of these areas are what you need help with, then scroll back up to the top of the page and click buy.

Gain a solid understanding of the principles of trigonometry and how these concepts apply to real life with McKeague/Turner's TRIGONOMETRY. This book's proven approach presents contemporary concepts in brief, manageable sections using current, detailed examples and interesting applications. Captivating illustrations drawn from Lance Armstrong's cycling success, the Ferris wheel, and even the human cannonball show trigonometry in action. Unique Historical Vignettes offer a fascinating glimpse at how many of the central ideas in trigonometry began.

Mathematics is one of the most important life skills a person can have. Hence, it is essential that it is taught in a way which enables the student to gain an excellent foundation in maths and the skills needed to use maths in a wide variety of applications. This book aims to be an important aid in achieving this by providing over 500 problems with worked solutions at GCSE level, for the student to study. Solutions are given in detail, this is to enable the student to check their progress and understanding of the topic and to iron out any difficulties they may encounter. The book is organised in two volumes. The layout of the chapters is such that after a brief summary of the topic, the book goes onto provide a number of questions in each subject along with the worked solution. The questions chosen are intended to build the knowledge and skills needed for GCSE level maths. Finally the last chapter of the volume consists of typical questions and solutions that may arise in a GCSE maths exam.

An exploration of one of the most celebrated and well-known theorems in mathematics By any measure, the Pythagorean theorem is the most famous statement in all of mathematics. In this book, Eli Maor reveals the full story of this ubiquitous geometric theorem. Although attributed to Pythagoras, the theorem was known to the Babylonians more than a thousand years earlier. Pythagoras may have been the first to prove it, but his proof—if indeed he had one—is lost to us. The theorem itself, however, is central to almost every branch of science, pure or applied. Maor brings to life many of the characters that played a role in its history, providing a fascinating backdrop to perhaps our oldest enduring mathematical legacy.
