Applied Mathematics provides easy-to-understand instruction in math skills. It makes use of numerous practical and realistic sample problems drawn from the building trades, the machining/ manufacturing and automotive industries, and other technical areas to provide students with real-world applications of math skills.
Learning new concepts is made easy by the structure of each chapter. Sample Problems accompany new concepts to show each step in the process involved. Practice Problems appear at the end of each major concept. Test Your Skills Problems cover all concepts taught throughout the chapter. Problem-Solving Activities allow students to relate concepts learned in the chapter to real-world problem solving with tools and materials.
