"The MDW Transform From Confusion to Passion"
Most people rightly associate triangles with trigonometry, but that's by no means the extent of the subject. For example, most high school and introductory college math courses treat trigonometry as a way to find the sides and angles of triangles once one or the other is given. On the other hand, it's better to think of trigonometry ("trig") as tools to study the behavior of anything that vibrates, oscillates, "repeats" itself after a certain interval, or behaves in a "bounded way."
