New in new dust jacket. The new edition of this best-selling text has been reviewed and revised to clarify and update an understanding of mathematical concepts necessary for success in the machine trades and manufacturing fields. Mathematics for Machine Technology, Sixth Edition overcomes the often mechanical "plug in" approach found in many trade-related texts. A complete grasp of mathematical concepts are emphasized in the presentation and application of a wide-range of topics from general arithmetic processes to oblique trigonometry, compound angles, and numerical control. The material covered by this text is accompanied by realistic industry-related examples, illustrations, and actual applications, which progress from the simple to the relatively complex. Mathematics for Machine Technology, Sixth Edition provides readers with practical vocational and technical applications of mathematical concepts necessary to excel in the machine, tool-and-die, and tool design industry. Benefits: * New units added on polar coordinates and hexadecimal and BCD (Binary Coded Decimal) numeration systems as well as new material conversion between the metric and the customary systems of measure make this more comprehensive as well as up-to-date * Scientific calculator examples are updated and expanded and sequencing has been modernized, with up-to-date instructions on how to use this tool * Problems and examples reinforce the book's method of progressing from the simple to the relatively complex, underscoring its organized approach to learning. * Extensive use of realistic trade-related illustrations bring concepts to life * Emphasizes an analytical approach that is necessary in translating engineering drawing dimensions to machine-working dimensions giving readers a realistic experience for what's required in the industry * An all-new Instructor's e-resource has been developed for this edition, containing answers and solutions to all problems.
