    Technical Mathematics with Calculus-Mathematics


An applications-oriented approach — designed especially to meet the math needs of those in the various engineering technologies who have limited mathematical backgrounds.


presents a good balance between mathematical concepts, manipulative mathematics, and their applications to the technologies — emphasizing both the “how” and the “why.”
reviews selected topics from arithmetic and geometry.
carefully explains and motivates all mathematical concepts and methods.
contains over 1200 step-by-step examples.
includes an abundance and variety of technical applications — which require no prior technical knowledge.
features over 7000 problems.
introduces and uses a scientific calculator throughout as the need arises.
