Designed for a first course in technical mathematics, this comprehensive, easy-to-read text is ideal for students with minimal mathematics training who wish to prepare for further study in technical areas. The newly revised Third Edition builds on the success of the first two editions, featuring a new chapter on using the quadratic formula to solve quadratic equations. Moreover, extra problem sets that feature technical applications have been added to several chapters. Introduction to Technical Mathematics, 3/E has a versatile format that can be used in many instructional settings. Its user-friendly approach includes problem-solving chapters designed to help students apply basic mathematical principles to a multitude of situations. Students also will benefit from the wealth of applications contained in the worked-out examples and problem sets.
An easy-to-use mathematics book designed along a practical, hands-on format that provides a unified approach to problem-solving by linking topics and their corresponding computational techniques. Mathematics for Technical Programs devotes special attention to mental activities involving elementary computations, fraction-decimal-percent conversions, and estimations to aid reader in achieving mathematical literacy. It assumes the use of scientific calculators to enable the reader to focus on concepts and problem-solving skills rather than time-consuming computations. The book also provides a unified approach to problem-solving not found with traditional arithmetic methods. A valuable book for any reader who wishes to improve his "mathematical literacy."
