About

Wumbo is a math reference site for students and teachers. Its mission is to provide free, high-quality content that explains math in the clearest way possible. The content has a strong emphasis on clarity, visuals and interactivity.

The level of mathematics covered by the site is primarily high school to college level mathematics. For the immediate future, the focus of the project is Trigonometry. The three web-books, listed below, are in development and represent a major goal for the site.

  1. Trigonometry Introduction
  2. Trigonometry Fundamentals
  3. Trigonometry in the Complex Plane

When the books are complete, I will write a retrospective on the project and reavaluate plans for the future. Until then, I hope you find the site useful and join me on the journey!
