Author:Robert G. de Boer
Description: Exposition of a new presentation of the hyperbolic angle, together with hyperbolic functions sinh x and cosh x. The Cognitive Foundation section explains the rationale for this presentation order. The author writes: "The argument of hyperbolic functions sinh x and cosh x is given a clear development on this website. It is shown to be a simple matter of comparing some areas under the hyperbola y = 1/x. Teachers can use the lesson plan provided for the functions. Educational researchers will appreciate the discussion of cognitive foundation."
