This no-nonsense guide provides students and self-learners with a clear and readable study of trigonometry's most important ideas. Tim Hill's distraction-free approach combines decades of tutoring experience with the methods of his Russian math teachers. The result: learn in a few days what conventional schools stretch into months. - Teaches general principles that can be applied to a wide variety of problems. - Avoids the mindless and excessive routine computations that characterize conventional textbooks. - Treats trigonometry as a logically coherent discipline, not as a disjointed collection of techniques. - Restores proofs to their proper place to remove doubt, convey insight, and encourage precise logical thinking. - Omits digressions, excessive formalities, and repetitive exercises. - Covers all the trigonometry needed to take a calculus course. - Includes problems (with all solutions) that extend your knowledge rather than merely reinforce it.

The jargon associated with Microsoft Excel's pivot tables ("n-dimensional cross tabulations") makes them look complex, but they're really no more than an easy way to build concise, flexible summaries of long lists of raw values. If you're working with hundreds (or hundreds of thousands) of rows, then pivot tables are the best way to look at the same information in different ways, summarize data on the fly, and spot trends and relationships. This handy guide teaches you how to use Excel's most powerful feature to crunch large amounts of data, without having to write new formulas, copy and paste cells, or reorganize rows and columns. You can download the sample workbook to follow along with the author's examples. - Create pivot tables from worksheet databases. - Rearrange pivot tables by dragging, swapping, and nesting fields. - Customize pivot tables with styles, layouts, totals, and subtotals. - Combine numbers, dates, times, or text values into custom groups. - Calculate common statistics or create custom formulas. - Filter data that you don't want to see. - Create and customize pivot charts. - Unlink a pivot table from its source data. - Control references to pivot table cells. - Plenty of tips, tricks, and timesavers. - Fully cross-referenced, linked, and searchable. Contents 1. Pivot Table Basics 2. Nesting Fields 3. Grouping Items 4. Calculations and Custom Formulas 5. Filtering Data 6. Charting Pivot Tables 7. Tricks with Pivot Tables

The mathematics of counting permutations and combinations is required knowledge for probability, statistics, professional gambling, and many other fields. But counting is hard. Students find it hard. Teachers find it hard. And in the end the only way to learn is to do many problems. Tim Hill's learn-by-example approach presents counting concepts and problems of gradually increasing difficulty. If you become lost or confused, then you can back up a bit for clarification. With practice, you'll develop the ability to decompose complex problems and then assemble the partial solutions to arrive at the final answer. The result: learn in a few weeks what conventional schools stretch into months. - Teaches general principles that can be applied to a wide variety of problems. - Avoids the mindless and excessive routine computations that characterize conventional textbooks. - Treats counting as a logically coherent discipline, not as a disjointed collection of techniques. - Restores proofs to their proper place to remove doubt, convey insight, and encourage precise logical thinking. - Omits digressions, excessive formalities, and repetitive exercises. - Provides exceptional preparation for probability and statistics courses. - Includes problems (with all solutions) that extend your knowledge rather than merely reinforce it. Contents 1. The Sum Rule and Product Rule 2. Permutations 3. Combinations 4. The Binomial Theorem 5. Combinations with Repetition 6. Summary and Solutions
