Allyn J. Washington's texts are synonymous with excellence in basic technical mathematics. Meticulous attention to accuracy, step-by-step explanations, and the ability to craft realistic technical applications are the keys to his texts' success. The sixth edition of this series features a new, accessible, highly functional design that lets students study and reference material more easily. Other improvements include a greater selection of high-quality applications; more emphasis on problem-solving; and the use of modern teaching and learning methods, including graphing utilities and writing. Washington's texts are the strongest and most respected on the market, giving professors and students alike a high-quality bank of exercises along with applications that enhance learning. TechDisk, the innovative exploration and tutorial-oriented software package developed for the fifth edition, has been completely updated for the sixth edition so as to be more functional and user-friendly.

  • Improvements to the design make the text easier to read and reference.
  • A new chapter on Geometry (an important component of the course) is now included, and is presented early (chapter 2).
  • Includes Graphing Utility Exercises that use the latest technological enhancements.
  • High-quality examples and exercises, and the best quality and quantity of applications of all works of its type, having evolved over more than three decades.
  • The Writing Exercise in each chapter lets students utilize writing skills throughout the curriculum.
