Completely revised and updated, the intent of this new edition is to provide students with the geometric and trigonometric
concepts needed to solve problems commonly encountered in technical and trade occupations. Technical Shop
Mathematics begins with arithmetic and then presents basic mathematical manipulations, geometry, elementary trigonometry,
and graphing. Practical explanations, problem solving techniques, examples, and exercises are provided throughout; and
emphasis is placed on applicationsmaking it an ideal resource for standard lecture courses or guided self-paced study.
