With more than twice as many exercises and examples, this all-new edition of Mathematics for Electricity and Electronics equips future electronics technicians/technologists with an understanding of essential algebra and trigonometry principles while it sharpens their ability to think quantitatively, predict results accurately, and troubleshoot effectively. Complete with the latest ideas and technologies, this edition features expanded coverage of basic arithmetic and algebra, earlier introduction of calculator examples, extensive discussion of DC and AC fundamentals, and an all-new chapter on statistics. Concrete examples that link the underlying theory to a practical electronics application are used to introduce new mathematical concepts, while "Highlights" summarize the important ideas and formulas to be presented in each chapter. Flowcharts to promote logical thought processes, plus helpful hints and references, are also included to aid readers in solving problems that require them to apply their knowledge of both math and electronics concepts.
The Practical Problems in Mathematics series offers students and trainees of specific trades the opportunity to practice math principles in problems designed for each area of interest. Practical Problems in Mathematics for Electricians, 6th Edition contains 44 instructional units featuring updated material and the addition of new problems and examples related to electricity. The book offers an excellent opportunity to test and develop problem-solving skills, while at the same time providing a valuable review of electrical terminology.
