The intent of Math for Machinists is to provide students with a review of basic math operations (whole numbers, fractions, decimals, percentages), measurements, and additional math topics that are directly applicable to machining and manufacturing, such as the precision measurements, angles, area, volume, and gear calculations. Creative problems and pertinent exercises help students develop their math skills as well as their knowledge of the trade. Answers to odd-numbered practice problems are listed in the back of the text.
  • Format combines text and workbook elements so that learners can put theory into practice immediately.
  • Practice problems reinforce unit concepts of basic math operations.
  • Application problems allow students to tie what they have learned to practical machinist math problems.
