The Machinist’s Helper: Analytic Geometry
Analytic geometry is often perceived by students as a set of sterile exercises, feebly motivated by its alleged place in the development of calculus later on in the term. Practical problems based upon actual technology can do wonders to enliven the subject, especially for those students with a pragmatic turn of mind. One such problem arising in a machining operations is the focus of this classroom note. © 1988 Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
