Basic Technical Mathematics
OverviewTechnical mathematics is a course pioneered by Allyn Washington, and the seventh edition of this text preserves the author's highly regarded approach to technical math while improving on the integration of technology. The book is intended for a two or three semester course and is taught primarily to students who plan to pursue engineering or other technical fields. The primary strength of the text is the heavy integration of technical applications, which aids the student pursuing a technical career by showing the importance of a strong foundation in algebraic and trigonometric math. Allyn Washington defined the technical math market when he wrote the first edition of Basic Technical Mathematics over thirty years ago. His continued vision is to provide highly accurate mathematical concepts based on technical applications. The course is designed to allow the student to be simultaneously enrolled in allied technical areas, such as physics or electronics. The material in the text can be arranged easily to fit the needs of the instructor as well as the students. Above all, the author's vision of this book is to continue to enlighten today's students that an understanding of elementary math is critical in many aspects of life.
