Written for engineering technology students, the book teaches the fundamentals of right- angle trigonometry to those who are new to the subject. It works as both an in-class training manual and a self-study refresher.
“I really wanted to provide my students with a comprehensive guide to one of the subjects they will apply over and over again once they launch their careers,” commented Powers, a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy. “I’ve been teaching at South Hills for 16 years, and it was time to formalize the knowledge I’d been sharing.”
The engineering technology program at South Hills helps students develop the practical and technological skills they will need to assist professional engineers in mechanical, civil, or architectural fields. Graduates emerge with an associate degree and have launched successful careers as product development technicians, engineering technicians, CAD designers, and more.
