Description: Strengthen mathematical skills and gain practice using those skills inpreparation for success in machine trades or manufacturing with Peterson/Smith'sMATHEMATICS FOR MACHINE TECHNOLOGY, 8E. This comprehensive book connects mathconcepts to relevant machine applications, using industry specific examples,realistic illustrations and actual machine functions. Step by step problems andexamples progress from general math to more complex trigonometry and solidgeometry while demonstrating how math applies to machine trades andmanufacturing fields. The authors highlight calculator operations whenappropriate. New coverage in this edition emphasizes spreadsheets andintroductory G and M codes for CNC programming. Master the practical, vocationaland technical applications of math concepts necessary to excel in today'smachine, tool and die and tool design industries with this proven book.
