About the Author

Robert D. Smith was Associate Professor Emeritus of Industrial Technology at Central Connecticut State University, New Britain, Connecticut. In addition to his teaching experience, Mr. Smith worked in the manufacturing industry as a tool designer, quality control engineer, and chief manufacturing engineer. He has also been active in teaching applied mathematics, physics, and industrial materials and processes on the secondary school level and in apprenticeship programs. John C. Peterson is a retired professor of mathematics at Chattanooga State Technical Community College in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Following a career in industry, Dr. Peterson taught at the middle school, high school, two-year college, and university levels. He is the author or coauthor of four other Cengage Learning books: MATH FOR THE AUTOMOTIVE TRADE, TECHNICAL MATHEMATICS, TECHNICAL MATHEMATICS WITH CALCULUS, and MATHEMATICS FOR MACHINE TECHNOLOGY. He was also a member of the four-person team that revised and interpreted the two-year college portion of the 2015 College Board of Mathematical Sciences cross-sectional survey of undergraduate mathematical science programs. In addition, Dr. Peterson has published more than 90 papers in various journals, given more than 200 presentations, and served as a vice president of The American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges.
