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. The 10th Edition SI Version is enhanced with a mix of Canadian and global examples, a reorganized Statistics chapter and updated notation that reflects standard engineering practice in industry.
The text is available with a robust MyMathLab® course—an online homework, tutorial, and study solution designed for today’s students. In addition to interactive multimedia features like lecture videos and eBook, there are thousands of algorithmic exercises available for students to get the practice they need. In addition, the 10e SI version offers MyMathLab with Adaptive Learning.
