The aim has been to illustrate the use of mathematics in constructing diagrams; in measuring areas, volumes, strengths of materials ; in calculating latitudes and longitudes on the earth's surface ; and in solving similar problems. There is no attempt at a systematic development of any part of mathematics, except to a certain extent in the sections on plane and spherical trigonometry.

The basic theme of this book is precalculus within the context of problem solving. The pace is faster than a high school class in precalculus, we aim for greater command of the material, especially to extend what we have learned to new situations.

In this booklet I've tried to pick out the bits of your math courses that you will really need to get through your first courses in physics and chemistry. In addition, I give some directions on how to use an inexpensive scientific calculator.
