Since everything assembled consists of either straight lines, curved lines, or a combination of both, the ability to calculate circles and right triangles is essential for anyone who works in a building trade. This simple and straightforward book explains the basic math used in construction, manufacturing, and design. Starting with fractions and decimals and moving to mitered turns and arcs, these principles are presented with detailed illustrations, practical applications, and in larger print for easy reading. The result is increased efficiency, productivity, and confidence in one's work from initial design to final product.

Review:

The fact is, you cannot build a house, work on plumbing or electrical systems, repair or remodel, or do anything of much use for your home without a rudimentary understanding of basic mathematics. The Hamiltons have approached math not as a theoretical or abstract academic exercise, but have instead created a system of understanding and remembering mathematical concepts with highly practical applications for the builder, both professional and amateur do-it-yourselfer. They have eliminated confusing and intimidating terminology in favor of clear, straightforward language, guiding the reader through easy-to-understand steps and exercises that virtually guarantee retention of the information in usable form for practical applications. This book should be a standard textbook or required reading for anyone in the building trades--contractors, carpenters, plumbers, electricians, and all the rest--and will likely turn into a classic text for any vocational school or class. --Mark A. Hetts
