This invaluable book is renowned for its fully worked examples and numerous applications. Concepts are presented either graphically, analytically, or numerically (sometimes using more than one approach) depending on which seems the most appropriate to make the material clear and easy to understand. Technology is also fully integrated into problem sets and examples, providing a real-world perspective. And the authors encourage readers to begin the problem solving process by estimating the solution and checking their work by examining their answers for "reasonableness".

This non-theoretical text with applications in technology is well-known for its many, fully-worked examples, numerous applications, and exercises graded by difficulty and grouped by type. New coverage of graphics calculator and added emphasis on estimation (does the answer make sense?) enhance the book's distinguishing features: marginal notes, boxed formulas, summary of Facts and Formulas, and Common Error Boxes.About the Author:
Paul Calter is Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at Vermont Technical College and Visiting Scholar at Dartmouth College. A graduate of The Cooper Union, New York, he received his M.S. from Columbia University and a MFA from Norwich University. Professor Calter has taught technical mathematics for over twenty-five years. He is a member of the American Mathematical Association of Two Year Colleges, the Mathematical Association of America, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, the College Art Association, and the Author's Guild.
Calter is involved in the Mathematics Across the Curriculum movement, and has developed and taught a course called Geometry in Art and Architecture at Dartmouth College under an NSF grant.
Professor Calter is the author of several other mathematics textbooks, among which are the Schaum's Outline of Technical Mathematics, Problem Solving with Computers, Practical Math Handbook for the Building Trades, Practical Math for Electricity and Electronics, Mathematics for Computer Technology, Introductory Algebra and Trigonometry, Technical Calculus, and Squaring the Circle: Geometry in Art and Architecture.
Michael Calter is Associate Professor at Wesleyan University. He received his B.S. from the University of Vermont. After receiving his Ph.D. from Harvard University, he completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of California at Irvine. Michael has been working on his father's mathematics texts since 1983, when he completed a set of programs to accompany Technical Mathematics with Calculus. Since that time, he has become progressively more involved with his father's writing endeavors, culminating with becoming co-author on the second edition of Technical Calculus and the fourth edition of Technical Mathematics with Calculus. Michael also enjoys the applications of mathematical techniques to chemical and physical problems as part of his academic research. Michael is a member of the American Mathematical Association of Two Year Colleges, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the American Chemical Society.
Michael and Paul enjoy hiking and camping trips together. These have included an expedition up Mt. Washington in January, a hike across Vermont, a walk across England on Hadrian's Wall, and many sketching trips into the mountains.
