The new edition of this best-selling text stresses an understanding of mathematical concepts relevant to the machine trades/manufacturing and overcomes the often mechanical "plug in" approach found in many trade-related texts. A complete grasp of those concepts is emphasized in the presentation and application of all topics from general math to oblique trigonometry, compound angles, and numerical control. The presentations are accompanied by realistic industry-related examples, illustrations, and actual applications, which progress from the simple to the relatively complex. The analytic approach that is necessary in translating engineering drawing dimensions to machine working dimensions is emphasized throughout. Integration of algebraic and geometric principles with trigonometry by careful sequence and treatment of material also helps the student in solving industrial applications.
