WileyPLUS for Cynthia Young’s Trigonometry, 5th Edition allows students to take the guesswork out of studying by providing them with an easy to read and clear roadmap: what to do, how to do it, and whether they did it right. With this revision, Cynthia Young revised the text with a focus on the most difficult topics in Trigonometry, with a goal to bring more clarity to those learning objectives. Trigonometry, 5th Edition is written in a voice that speaks to students and mirrors how instructors communicate in lecture. Young’s hallmark pedagogy enables students to become independent, successful learners. Key features like “Parallel Words and Math” are now brought to life in WileyPLUS with assignable interactive animations. The new Corequisite Support appendices allow students at all skill levels to succeed.

Cynthia Y. Young is the Founding Dean of the College of Science and Professor of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences at Clemson University and the author of College Algebra, Trigonometry, Algebra and Trigonometry, and Precalculus. She holds a BA in Secondary Mathematics Education from the University of North Carolina (Chapel Hill), an MS in Mathematical Sciences from the University of Central Florida (UCF), and both an MS in Electrical Engineering and a PhD in Applied Mathematics from the University of Washington. She has taught high school in North Carolina and Florida, developmental mathematics at Shoreline Community College in Washington, and undergraduate and graduate students at UCF.

Prior to her leadership role at Clemson, Dr. Young was a Pegasus Professor of Mathematics and the Vice Provost for Faculty Excellence and UCF Global at the University of Central Florida (UCF). Dr. Young joined the faculty at UCF in 1997 as an assistant professor of mathematics, and her primary research area was the mathematical modeling of the atmospheric effects on propagating laser beams. Her atmospheric propagation research was recognized by the Office of Naval Research Young Investigator Award, and in 2007 she was selected as a fellow of the Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE). Her secondary area of research centers on improving student learning in mathematics. She has authored or co-authored over 60 books and articles and has served as the principal investigator or co-principal investigator on projects with more than $5 million in federal funding. Dr. Young was on the team at UCF that developed the UCF EXCEL program, which was originally funded by the National Science Foundation to support the increase in the number of students graduating with a degree in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The EXCEL learning community approach centered around core mathematics courses has resulted in a significant increase in STEM graduation rates and has been institutionalized at UCF.
