I am studying calculus on my own, and I just skip everything to do with trigonometry. I have never done trigonometry before(except just the basic ratios), and I was wondering whether you really need to study trigonometry before calculus. I see a lot of trigonometry in my calculus book, and I wonder whether I need to know all that to get any deeper insight. Of course, eventually I will do trigonometry, but do I have to before calculus?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
