So what are the tools of the trades? They vary from career to career, but everyone uses a couple of tools. The two most important tools are your general math skills and the modern calculator. You need to know the math so you can appreciate what the specialty instruments do for you, and so you can do the same operations if you don’t have such instruments handy. In this chapter, you find out what technical math is all about. Add to that a little history, because if people have been doing this stuff for so long, how hard can it be?

Chapter 2: Discovering Technical Math and the Tools of the Trades Figure 2-5: Many automotive tools, such as the gas analyzer, are unique to mechanics. The smog check computer (formally, an emission analyzer) is another computer at the auto mechanic’s shop. It determines whether your car meets your state’s emission standards. After a number of visual checks (for example, fuel cap, crankcase smoke), the mechanic connects an RPM measurement device and puts a probe in the tailpipe. The computer does the rest, including sending the results over phone lines to the Department of Motor Vehicles.

After you read this chapter, you’ll never run from a story problem again. Chapter 1 Math that Works as Hard as You Do In This Chapter ▶ Reviewing the very basics of math ▶ Identifying the tools of the trade ▶ Looking at math’s basic disciplines and branches ▶ Applying math to the business of work ▶ Previewing ten of this and ten of that T echnical mathematics (technical math) is an essential part of the work and the education of everyone in a technical career. If you’re studying a trade in a two-year college or an occupational program, you can’t dodge it, whether you’re taking formal math courses or dealing with math calculations in specialized courses.
