"From Stargazers to Starships" tries to be self-contained, even in the mathematics it uses. The sections below are meant to refresh your memory about some basic ideas in algebra and trigonometry.
Here is what is covered: Elements of algebra
Elements of trigonometryTo explore math further, you may look up "Understanding Mathematics" by Peter Alfeld. We also recommend highly Plus, a free web magazine supported by Cambridge University, England. In its own words, "Plus is an internet magazine published five times a year which aims to introduce readers to the beauty and the practical applications of mathematics." |
