The best-seller in technical mathematics gets an “Oh, wow!” update

The 11th Edition of  Basic Technical Mathematics  is a bold revision of this classic best-seller. The text now sports an engaging full-color design, and new co-author Rich Evans has introduced a wealth of relevant applications and improvements, many based on user feedback. The text is supported by an all-new online graphing calculator manual, accessible at point-of-use via short URLs. The MyLab™ Math course features hundreds of new algorithmic exercises, tutorial videos, and PowerPoint slides.  The text continues to feature a vast number of applications from technical and pre-engineering fields–including computer design, electronics, solar energy, lasers fiber optics, and the environment–and aims to develop students’ understanding of mathematical methods without simply providing a collection of formulas. The authors start the text by establishing a solid background in algebra and trigonometry, recognizing the importance of these topics for success in solving applied problems.
