Synopsis:

Learn fundamental mathematical concepts using real-world, on-the-job scenarios that electricians face every day. Building a Foundation in Mathematics uses a building block approach by beginning with very basic concepts like whole numbers and fractions, and building upon this knowledge to get to more complex material like Boolean algebra. Each concept is covered deliberately and thoroughly before moving on to the next, guaranteeing a strong working knowledge of each area. This clear, straightforward approach, coupled with practical examples that engage readers and provide a context for learning, make this book an indispensable resource for anyone seeking the mathematical skills necessary for work in the electrical field.
