• Review & Refresh exercises–cumulative review exercises from current or prerequisite courses within each section exercise set–prepare students for the next section and provide a general skill review throughout the text.

• Skills Refresher videos provide timely support by covering previously learned skills that students need to better understand a concept, example or definition.

• Exploring the Concepts sections, Vocabulary and Concept Checks build student confidence and develop conceptual understanding.

• Summary and Study Strategies help students succeed in the course by offering explanations and examples of both the key objectives and essential study skills for each chapter.

• WebAssign provides instructors with the tools needed to build students’ confidence and elevate their performance. WebAssign offers built-in flexibility and control for instructors with high quality content that students can afford.

• Text-specific tutorial videos at Larson’s CalcView.com provide instruction with stepped-out solutions for selected exercises.

• Learning support at Larson’s CalcChat.com provides students with free online tutoring and solutions to all odd-numbered problems.

• How Do You See It? exercises in every section present real-life problems that students solve by visual inspection using the concepts in the lesson.

• Side-By-Side Examples help students see not only that a problem can be solved in more than one way but also how different methods--algebraic, graphical, and numerical--yield the same result. The side-by-side format also addresses many different learning styles.

• Algebra of Calculus examples and exercises throughout the text emphasize various algebraic techniques used in calculus.

• Study strategies are found after the chapter summary. These essential study skills and reminders of helpful program features are presented to the student in every chapter.

• ENHANCED WEBASSIGN: TRIGONOMETRY, Eleventh Edition, is fully supported by Enhanced WebAssign (EWA), the powerful online homework and course management system that engages students in learning the math. EWA includes new end-of-chapter exercises, animated simulations, and pre-built assignments vetted by trusted subject matter experts along with robust course, section, assignment, and question settings and online testing to help instructors foster a deeper understanding of course concepts.

• The Student Companion Website LarsonPrecalculus.com features chapter projects, data tables, assessments, study tools, skills refresher videos, and more to support students outside the text.

• CalcChat.com, an independent website, provides students with free, up-to-the-minute homework support, including solutions to all odd-numbered problems in the text.

• Algebra Helps features direct students to sections of the textbook where they can review algebra skills needed to master the current topic.

• Original Checkpoint Problems encourage immediate practice and check students' understanding of the concepts in the paired example.
