This tried-and-true text from Allyn Washington preserves the author's highly regarded approach to technical math, while enhancing the integration of technology. Appropriate for a three- to four- semester course, BASIC TECHNICAL MATHEMATICS WITH CALCULUSshows how algebra, trigonometry, and basic calculus are used on the job. It addresses a vast number of technical and pre-engineering fields, including computer design, electronics, solar energy, lasers fiber optics, and the environment. Known for its exceptional problem sets and applied material, the book offers practice exercises, writing exercises, word problems, and practice tests. This edition features more technical applications, over 2300 new exercises, additional graphing calculator screens and the innovative MyLab websites.
