Technician Mathematics I is the first of a series which deal simply and carefully with the fundamental mathematics essential in the development of technicians and engineers. The material for this third edition of this successful textbook has been updated and expanded to cover all the likely requirements of Mathematics modules contained in the Business and Technology Education Council First Certificate and Diploma courses and to provide valuable revision for students studying Mathematics modules required for National Certificate or National Diploma courses. Four-figure tables are assumed to be redundant; the electronic calculator is now an accepted essential tool in technician and engineering studies. The modifications in this third edition reflect this change. The aim of the book is to consolidate basic mathematical principles and establish a common base for further progress, taking into account the wide variety of approaches to mathematics previously encountered at earlier stages of education. Each topic considered in the text is presented in a wav that assumes in the reader little previous owledge of that topic.
This practical mathematics book contains nearly 400 detailed worked problems followed by some 750 further problems, all with answers. Although specifically written for the BTEC 'first level Mathematics module, the book will also be suitable for NVQ and GNVQ studies and for students studving for their GCSE.
