Summary

This tried-and-true text from the pioneer of the basic technical mathematics course now has Addison-Wesley's amazing math technologies MyMathLab and MathXL helping students to develop and maintain the math skills they will need in their technical careers.Technical mathematics is a course pioneered by Allyn Washington, and the eighth edition of this text preserves the author's highly regarded approach to technical math, while enhancing the integration of technology in the text. The book is intended for a two- or three-semester course and is taught primarily to students who plan to pursue technical fields. The primary strength of the text is the heavy integration of technical applications, which aids the student in pursuit of a technical career by showing the importance of a strong foundation in algebraic and trigonometric math.Allyn Washington defined the technical math market when he wrote the first edition of Basic Technical Mathematics over forty years ago. His continued vision is to provide highly accurate mathematical concepts based on technical applications. The course is designed to allow the student to be simultaneously enrolled in allied technical areas, such as physics or electronics. The material in the text can be easily rearranged to fit the needs of both instructor and students. Above all, the author's vision of this book is to continue to show today's students that an understanding of elementary math is critical in many aspects of life.
