Math for Welders is a combination text and workbook designed to help welding students learn and apply basic math skills. The basic concept behind each math operation is explained at the opening of the unit. Next, students are given clear instruction for performing the operation. Each unit includes a variety of welding-related practice problems to reinforce what the students have learned. The practice problems are identical to the types of problems the students will be required to solve in a welding shop. In addition to teaching basic math concepts, the problems give students a preview of the types of challenges they will face in a work environment. This helps the students develop solid troubleshooting skills that will serve them throughout their careers as welders.
  • Problems range in complexity from solving simple equations to calculating the weight of an assembly based on a dimensioned drawing.
  • Answers to odd-numbered practice problems are provided in the back of the book.
