Trigonometry - Forgotten and Abused?
Markel, William D.
School Science and Mathematics, v82 n7 p548-51 Nov 1982
Concern is expressed that trigonometry is being de-emphasized at the secondary level, and that even incoming college students with excellent mathematics backgrounds and aptitudes appear to be "drawing blanks" on even the most fundamental trigonometric concepts. Teaching trigonometry as the ultimate high school subject is promoted. (MP)
