Practical Problems in Mathematics for Electricians
Solve Practical Math Problems Commonly Faced By Electricians On The Job

By Stephen Herman - Eighth Edition

Gain the math skills you need to succeed in the electrical trade with this new edition of Practical Problems in Mathematics for Electricians. Using the same straightforward writing style and simple, step-by-step explanations that made previous editions so reader-friendly, the eighth edition includes updated illustrations and information for a better learning experience than ever before!

The book begins with basic arithmetic and then, once these basic topics have been mastered, progresses to algebra and then trigonometry. Practical electrical math problems with real-world scenarios from the electrical field are used throughout, allowing readers to apply key mathematical concepts at the same time as they are developing an awareness of basic electrical terms and practices. This is the perfect resource for anyone entering the electrical industry, or simply looking to brush up on the necessary math.

Word problems designed to encourage the use of logical deduction are just one of the hallmarks of this tried and true guidebook that provides the mathematical background students need to succeed in the electrical field.

Explanations at the beginning of each unit foster a better understanding of the concepts being presented; while problems related to electricity help develop an appreciation for electrical terms and practices.

Features:

  • A new unit on number systems has been added that examines the decimal, binary, octal, and hexadecimal number systems.
  • Many new drawings and word problems feature multiple steps to exercise the ability of readers to reach logical conclusions.
  • Opportunities to practice math principles in problems that are specifically designed for the electrical field are integrated throughout.
  • Expansive coverage explores the mathematical units used in today's scientific and engineering applications.
  • Answers to odd numbered problems are given, and an all-inclusive appendix features basic mathematical operations, conversions, symbols, and terminology.
