**Kirk Trigsted** revolutionized the way this course is taught when he created **College Algebra**, a completely clickable eText that was written from the ground up within MyMathLab. Recognizing that today’s students start with the homework instead of reading the text, Trigsted created an online learning environment that is a seamless mix of exposition, videos, interactive animations, tutorials, and assessment. This approach leverages the power of MyMathLab and leads students to interact with course materials in a way that is proving to be more effective.

With **Precalculus: A Unit Circle Approach**, Trigsted continues to innovate with a revised design that improves navigation and usability, expanded videos, and increased animation coverage. All multimedia elements, exercises, feedback, and content are written by the author himself so that the students have a consistent voice throughout.

Starting in 2011, the MyMathLab eCourse series expands to include College Algebra, Trigonometry, Algebra & Trigonometry, and Precalculus: A Unit Approach.

- The
**Trigsted eText**is designed for the way students think and behave online. Interactive multimedia elements are strategically placed throughout the exposition, so that each concept is taught in the most effective way. To insure a consistent voice throughout, the author created the videos himself and scripted all animations, exercises, and other multimedia elements. **Special design considerations**take into account that this eText was meant to be read and used entirely online. The eText is formatted to fit the screen without scrolling, and a cream-colored background enhances readability. Careful attention to detail throughout improves the reader experience.**Review links**throughout the text provide just-in-time information in a way that does not distract from the concept at hand. Hyperlinks allow students to test their prerequisite skills and get immediate feedback, review vocabulary definitions, use multimedia learning aids, and refresh their understanding of prior sections when needed.**Interactive animations**require student participation, reflecting the author’s belief that students should not be idle when viewing media, especially when it presents key concepts. All animations were scripted by the author to ensure a consistent voice.**Videos and Interactive Videos**show the author on screen teaching important examples, concepts and procedures, making the text a more engaging and effective learning experience. Interactive videos periodically prompt students to make decisions during the solution process, engaging them in active learning.**Reading Assessment Questions**allow instructors to encourage students to read the eText by assigning conceptual and vocabulary questions. Students receive customized feedback on incorrect answers that include links back to the eText for easy reference.**My Task List**is a learning framework to help students organize their time and study efficiently. When students click to “Start Homework” in the Trigsted MyMathLab course, students see a four-step learning process: (1) read the eText; (2) complete the assignable Reading Assessment Questions; (3) work practice exercises; and (4) complete the homework exercises.**NEW! Step By Step Exercises**require students to demonstrate their ability to solve more complex problems. Rather than asking the question in a way that allows them to plug an equation into a calculator, these new exercises break into multiple conceptual questions, so students need to think carefully and step through the problem-solving process. These problems are identified by an icon in the Homework and Test manager.**NEW! Brief Exercises**, created by the author, are designed to test one concept in a multi-step problem to give students extra practice on the specific skills needed for more complex problems. These problems are identified by an icon in the Homework and Test Manager.**Instructor and Student support resources**are available to accompany the Trigsted eText:**The eText Reference**is a spiral-bound, printed version of the eText that provides a place for students to do practice work and summarize key concepts from the online videos and animations. In addition to the benefits it provides students, the eText Reference also provides portability for those instructors who prefer a printed text for class preparation. Answers to the end-of-section exercises are also included.**The Guided Notebook**is an interactive workbook that guides students through the course by asking them to write down key definitions and work through important examples for each section of the eText. This resource is available in a three-hole-punched, unbound format to provide the foundation for a personalized course notebook. Students can integrate their class notes and homework notes within the appropriate section of the Guided Notebook. Instructors can customize the Guided Notebook files found within MyMathLab.**PowerPoint**slides provide an outline to use in a lecture setting, presenting definitions and key examples from the text.^{®}**TestGen**(www.pearsoned.com/testgen) software enables instructors to build, edit, print, and administer tests using a computerized bank of questions developed to cover all the objectives of the text.^{®}
