Analytic Trigonometry with Applications, 11th Edition

By Raymond A. Barnett, Michael R. Ziegler, Karl E. Byleen

Analytic Trigonometry is designed to be easily understood and applied by students. Concept development moves from the concrete to abstract to engage students and almost every concept is illustrated by an example followed by a matching problem, allowing students to practice knowledge precisely when they acquire it. To gain student interest quickly, the course moves directly into trigonometric concepts and applications and reviews essential material from prerequisite courses only as needed. This course covers applications from a range of different fields to convince all students that trigonometry is practical and useful.

Read, Study, and Practice

Students learn course concepts using the complete online eTextbook, flashcards, crossword puzzles, practice questions, videos, and animations. Organized by learning objective, students can filter for relevant learning resources based on what they need to study most and print any section of the eTextbook.

ORION Adaptive Practice (when available)

Every student has a different starting point, and adaptive practice provides endless opportunities for practice to effectively prepare for class or quizzes and exams. Active retrieval of information with practice questions is proven to improve retention of information better than re-reading or reviewing the material, and students who use adaptive practice to prepare for exams do significantly better than those who do not. Students begin with a quick, chapter-level diagnostic to determine their initial level of understanding, and they can use the dashboard and quick reports to see what topics they know and don’t know.


Students who fully engage in WileyPLUS assignments do better in the course by more than a letter grade. Auto-graded assignments give students immediate feedback based on flexible assignment settings determined by the instructor, while the notification center allows students to set their own email notification policies to stay on track.

Instructors can select from extensive and reliable question banks to create and deploy reading, practice, homework, pre-post lectures, and assessment assignments. This course includes essay, label drag-and-drop, multiple choice, text entry, and true-/false question types.


Students know where they stand on WileyPLUS assignments, and they can track progress by learning objective.

Instructors have insights into student performance at the granular question attempt and can track trends by individual student, assignment, or learning objective. Flexible policies allow instructors to change points, set assignment weighing policies, extend individual due dates, or drop the lowest grade.

    What’s New

  • Wide variety of applications: Most sections contain applied exercises from astronomy, physics, engineering, and the life sciences.  There are a wide variety and ample number of up-to-date applications distributed through-out the text to convince the most skeptical students that mathematics is really useful.
  • Contains over 180 numbered worked examples with annotated solution steps. Each concept is illustrated with one or more examples, and following each example is a PARALLEL or “MATCHED” problem with an answer near the end of the section so that a student can immediately check his or understanding of a concept.
  • Over 3,000 carefully selected and graduated problems, progressing from skill/drill exercises through intermediate and challenging exercises.
  • Graphing utility activities are included in appropriate places in the book. These include brief discussions in the text, examples or portions of examples solved on a graphing utility, and problems for the student to solve. 
  • Explore-Discuss boxes are interspersed in every section at appropriate places to encourage a student to think about a relationship or process before a result is stated or to investigate additional consequences of a development in the text. 
  • Group activities are included at the end of every chapter and involve a number of the concepts discussed in the chapter.
  • WileyPLUS, accompanied with Barnett, Analytical Trigonometry 11th edition, provides a research based, online environment for effective teaching and learning. WileyPLUS builds students’ confidence because it takes the guesswork out of studying by providing students with a clear roadmap: what to do, how to do it, if they did it right.
