Hello, I've recently been reading "Calculus made Easy" and realized that I've completely skipped over learning trigonometry. After the class I was taking (seventh grade advanced math, sadly) became completely insufficient for my desire to learn. I picked up the book at the local library, unfortunately forgetting about trigonometry until I ran into sine and cosine references. So I was wondering if knowing trigonometry is required for calculus or if I should just get the basic grasp on it.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
