For courses in Introductory Technical Mathematics.
This tried-and-true text from Allyn Washington builds on the author's highly regarded approach to technical math, while enhancing its pedagogy with full-colour figures and boxes that warn students of Common Errors. Appropriate for a two- to three-semester course, Basic Technical Mathematics with Calculus shows how algebra, trigonometry and basic calculus are used on the job. It covers applications in a vast number of technical and pre-engineering fields, including statics, electronics, solar energy, laser fiber optics, acoustics, fluid mechanics, and the environment. Known for its exceptional problem sets and applied material, the book offers practice exercises, writing exercises, word problems and practice tests.
