Overview
This triedandtrue text from Allyn Washington preserves the author's highly regarded approach to technical math, while enhancing the integration of technology. Appropriate for a two to three semester course, BASIC TECHNICAL MATHEMATICS WITH CALCULUS shows how algebra, trigonometry, and basic calculus are used on the job. It addresses a vast number of technical and preengineering fields, including computer design, electronics, solar energy, lasers fiber optics, and the environment. Known for its exceptional problem sets and applied material, the book offers practice exercises, writing exercises, word problems, and practice tests. This edition features more technical applications, over 2300 new exercises, and additional graphing calculator screens.

A textbook intended primarily for students in technical and pre engineering technology programs or other programs for which coverage of basic mathematics is required. There is an integrated treatment of mathematical topics, from algebra to calculus, with numerous applications from many fields of technology to indicate where and how mathematical techniques are used. For this edition (fifth was 1990), most sections have been rewritten to some degree to include additional or revised explanatory material, examples, and exercises. Annotation c.
