Synopses & Reviews
Since everything assembled consists of either straight lines, curved lines, or a combination of both, the ability to calculate circles and right triangles is essential for anyone who works in a building trade. This simple and straightforward book explains the basic math used in construction, manufacturing, and design. Starting with fractions and decimals and moving to mitered turns and arcs, these principles are presented with detailed illustrations, practical applications, and in larger print for easy reading. The result is increased efficiency, productivity, and confidence in one's work from initial design to final product.
Basic math principles for those in design and construction work.
