More About This Textbook
Overview
This text is designed to provide a mathematically rigorous, comprehensive coverage of topics and applications, while still being accessible to students. Calter/Calter focuses on developing students' critical thinking skills as well as improving their proficiency in a broad range of technical math topics such as algebra, linear equations, functions, and integrals. Using abundant examples and graphics throughout the text, this edition provides several features to help students visualize problems and better understand the concepts. Calter/Calter has been praised for its reallife and engineeringoriented applications. The sixth edition of Technical Mathematics has added back in popular topics including statistics and line graphing in order to provide a comprehensive coverage of topics and applicationseverything the technical student may need is included, with the emphasis always on clarity and practical applications. WileyPLUS, an online teaching and learning environment that integrates the entire digital text, will be available with this edition.

Calter is involved in the Mathematics Across the Curriculum movement, and has developed and taught a course called Geometry in Art and Architecture at Dartmouth College under an NSF grant.
Professor Calter is the author of several other mathematics textbooks, among which are the Schaum's Outline of Technical Mathematics, Problem Solving with Computers, Practical Math Handbook for the Building Trades, Practical Math for Electricity and Electronics, Mathematics for Computer Technology, Introductory Algebra and Trigonometry, Technical Calculus, and Squaring the Circle: Geometry in Art and Architecture.
Michael Calter is Associate Professor at Wesleyan University. He received his B.S. from the University of Vermont. After receiving his Ph.D. from Harvard University, he completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of California at Irvine. Michael has been working on his father's mathematics texts since 1983, when he completed a set of programs to accompany Technical Mathematics with Calculus. Since that time, he has become progressively more involved with his father's writing endeavors, culminating with becoming coauthor on the second edition of Technical Calculus and the fourth edition of Technical Mathematics with Calculus. Michael also enjoys the applications of mathematical techniques to chemical and physical problems as part of his academic research. Michael is a member of the American Mathematical Association of Two Year Colleges, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the American Chemical Society.
Michael and Paul enjoy hiking and camping trips together. These have included an expedition up Mt. Washington in January, a hike across Vermont, a walk across England on Hadrian's Wall, and many sketching trips into the mountains.
