For those who work with cylinders, a geometric understanding of the shapes involved and how they fit together are crucial for excellence in their trade. This book allows pipe fitters to connect their work to its logical base—math. The straightforward tone, multitude of illustrations, and example problems will help even those with underdeveloped math skills learn the calculations. Forty-one sets of exercises with answers give the reader ample practice as well as applying the math skills.


“A must for the library of any school or college that has a shop mathematics program or is involved in pipe fitters.”  —Mathematics Teacher

“Shows that real people, even those who wear blue collars, need real math.”  —Mathematics and Computer Education
