Basic Technical Mathematics with Calculus, SI Version is intended primarily for students in technical and pre-engineering technology programs or other programs for which coverage of basic mathematics is required.

This tried-and-true text from Allyn Washington builds on the author's highly regarded approach to technical math, while enhancing its pedagogy with full-colour figures and boxes that warn students of Common Errors.

Appropriate for a two- to three-semester course, Basic Technical Mathematics with Calculus shows how algebra, trigonometry and basic calculus are used on the job. It covers applications in a vast number of technical and pre-engineering fields, including statics, electronics, solar energy, laser fiber optics, acoustics, fluid mechanics, and the environment. Known for its exceptional problem sets and applied material, the book offers practice exercises, writing exercises, word problems and practice tests. The 11th Edition SI Version is enhanced with a mix of Canadian and global examples, a reorganised Statistics chapter and updated notation that reflects standard engineering practice in industry.

Pearson MyLab™ is the world's leading online self-study, homework, tutorial and assessment product designed with a single purpose in mind: to improve the results of all higher education students, one student at a time.

Please note: The duration of access to a MyLab is set by your instructor for your specific unit of study. To access the MyLab you need a Course ID from your instructor.
