Most of us are unaware of how trigonometry factors into our daily lives. Dr. William Murray is very aware of the importance of trigonometry and he is ready to help you master it all. His in-depth course covers everything from Functions, Identities, and Complex/Polar Coordinates to Word Problems and the Law of Sines.  This course meets or exceeds all state standards and is essential to those having trouble with trigonometry in any setting. Professor Murray received his Ph.D from UC Berkeley, B.S. from Georgetown University, and has been teaching in the university setting for 10+ years.
