This is a text on elementary trigonometry. Though designed for college students, it could also be used in high schools. The traditional topics are covered, but a more geometrical approach is taken than usual. Also, some numerical methods (e.g. the secant method for solving trigonometric equations) are discussed. A brief tutorial on using Gnuplot to graph trigonometric functions is included.

A trigonometry textbook that treats the solution of triangles quite fully and elaborates analytical trigonometry. It covers angles, trigonometric functions, inverse functions, trigonometric equations and identities, triangles, spherical trigonometry.
by J. B. Lock - The MacMillan Company
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.
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.

The text represents a serious effort to produce exposition that is accessible to a student at the freshmen or high school levels. The chapters of this book are well suited for a one semester course in College Trigonometry.
