Remember that time you asked your algebra teacher when you’d ever need to solve for X in real life? There’s a good chance you still haven’t found a use for your higher math skills, but Toolmongers will likely encounter plenty of practical math issues during a project. This handy book’ll show you how to calculate roof pitch, lay out stairs, make sense of a scientific calculator, and lots of other stuff.
The guide contains 256 pages of facts, figures, and conversion tables aimed at industry, construction, and home projects. The book outlines simple projects that allow you to apply your newfound math skills using basic materials. It also includes reviews and testing material to keep you sharp. It measures 10.6″ x 8.7″ x 0.4″ with precut holes, so you can keep it in a three-ring binder out in the shop for easy reference.
All this knowledge will run you about $20.
