Publisher Comments:

Offering examples and applications tailored specifically to the automotive trades, Automotive Mathematics, 1st Edition, gives students a sound background in the mathematical skills necessary to be skilled and competent technicians. Early chapters of the text focus on fundamental mathematics skills such as ratios, percents, measurement systems and geometry; later chapters apply basic skills to topics such as engine balancing, camshaft event timing, modifying compression ratio, planetary gear ratios and hydraulics. Designed with versatility in mind, the text offers diverse problem sets (organized by level of difficulty), flexible organization, and in-depth examples that make math meaningful and relevant to the automotive technology student.
