Christians (horticulture, Iowa State U.-Ames) and Agnew, with a North Carolina turf company, explain how many of the tasks of a golf course superintendent involve mathematics, and show how to set up the problems and solve them. They include additional practice problems in each chapter, with answers at the back, to allow readers to get some experience. Among the problems are calculating area, pesticides, irrigation, and seeding rate. Chapters also look at the metric system, and applying small amounts of materials to greenhouse pots.
