Occupations like those of machinists, tool and die makers, pattern makers, drafters, and designers require a fundamental knowledge of general math as well as of more advanced topics like oblique trigonometry, compound angles, and numerical control. This updated edition of Mathematics for Machine Technology promotes an understanding of all the mathematical concepts necessary for success in the machine trades and manufacturing fields. The author effectively combines math concepts with the relevant machine applications so that readers fully understand the value of what they are learning. Industry-specific examples, realistic illustrations, and actual applications further enhance the theory-to-application connection.
