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 section 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.

**Features:**

- 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
