Trig Preliminaries for Calculus
This section contains the Trigonometry Preliminaries for Calculus review worksheet, which you can download here. Experience has shown that many students in Calculus may have trouble because their trigonometry skills have gotten rusty. The purpose of this worksheet is to help you review the trigonometry skills needed for Calculus.
