Abstract 
Chapter 1 presents the definitions and basic properties of trigonometric functions including: Sum Identities, Difference Identities, ProductSum Identities and SumProduct Identities. These formulas provide effective tools to solve the problems in trigonometry. Chapter 2 handles the most important two theorems in trigonometry: The laws of sines and cosines and show how they can be applied to derive many well known theorems including: Ptolemy’s theorem, Euler Triangle Formula, Ceva’s theorem, Menelaus’s Theorem, Parallelogram Law, Stewart’s theorem and Brahmagupta’s Formula. Moreover, the formulas of computing a triangle area like Heron’s formula and Pick’s theorem are also discussed. Chapter 3 deals with the method of superposition, inverse trigonometric functions, polar forms and De Moivre’s Theorem.
