Summary: Introductory Technical Mathematics, 5th Edition provides current and practical vocational and technical math applications for today's sophisticated trade and technical work environments. Each unit delivers practical math concepts alongside step-by-step examples and problems drawn from various occupations. The plentiful examples and problem sets emphasize on-the-job applications of math. Enhancements to the fifth edition include improved algebra coverage, a new sectio...show moren on basic statistics, new material on conversions from metric to customary systems of measure, and a section that supplements the basics of working with spreadsheets for graphing.
a new section on basic statistics features an all-new chapter on statistics and a chapter that consolidates all the statistical graphing techniques of bar, line, and circle graphs into one location
clear explanations with easy-to-follow procedural steps for solving examples
a straightforward writing style that begins with the simple concepts, enabling readers to work up to solving even the most complex problems
illustrations accompany many of the problems and are modeled after those found in technical manuals and handbooks, emphasizing the relevancy of mathematics concepts on the job
