Synopsis

Many colleges and universities have discovered that students enrolled in their agriculture programs are lacking in their abilities to perform mathematically and have varying skill levels. Additionally, many of these students are unable to apply previously learned mathematical skills to real-world, agriculturally significant situations. This user-friendly text/reference is designed to:* provide the student with a solid foundation in practical mathematical applications to agriculture* provide the student with the opportunity to develop his/her thinking skills by the way the problems are designed* provide the student with some real world agriculturally- applicable facts and situations. All problems in the book are application problems. Part I deals with mathematical operations involving fractions, area, volume, slope, graphs, etc. It contains three chapters and is the foundation for the rest of the book. Part II deals with mathematics involved in crop production such as soil preparation, harvesting, storage, etc. for such crops as corn, wheat, soybeans, cotton and more. Part III deals with the mathematics involved in livestock production such as cattle, swine, poultry, and more.

Part IV deals with the mathematics involved in agribusiness such as elevators/milling companies, fertilizer/chemical suppliers, feed suppliers, etc. and mathematics involved in agribusiness and personal finances. A handy Appendix contains a quick review of arithmetic, applied geometry, algebra, as well as tables of measurements. Ag Facts and Chapter Skill Tests are available to maintain the students' interest and monitor skill progression. A helpful Teacher's Solutions Manual is also available
