Overview

Available in both hard- and soft-cover editions, Technical Mathematics underscores the importance of algebra, geometry, and trigonometry in today's sophisticated, state-of-the-art trade/technical work environments. Unlike other books, this book integrates practice problems and examples directly into its explanations of math concepts and eliminates the need to labor through theoretical derivations and formal proofs. In addition to new, step-by-step examples and applications problems drawn directly from a variety of diverse occupational fields, this edition also features expanded coverage of fractional exponents, measurement prefixes used in the electronics and computer industries, the binary system, polar coordinates, quadratic equations, and more! Integration of algebraic and geometric principles with trigonometry, combined with thoughtful sequencing of the material, helps readers develop the analytic and critical thinking skills required to solve realistic, occupation-specific problems.
