I read an article the other day on "rational trigonometry" and decided to go exploring... and I feel as if a lightbulb has turned on. This seems like such a wonderful new technique to doing otherwise cumbersome problems, and I agree that it does feel like a more "rational approach" to the subject. I only wish this would have been available doing my university days, but am happy to see work being done to simplify what is often presented as a difficult and often cumbersome subject. Thank you to all mathematicians who make it their life's work to explore new and exciting paths... especially in the field of trigonemtry!
