Math for Soil Scientists is a unique book written specifically for students in soil and environmental sciences who need to learn or review basic mathematical operations they will face when working with or studying soils. This text covers all of the most common equations in the many different fields of soil science, from calculating particle size distribution to conducting simple hypothesis testing. Most important, this text gives the reader many opportunities for practice in working out sample problems of each required math concept. At the conclusion of each section, readers should be confident that they know how to approach and solve similar problems in the field. This unique and easy-to-read text approaches every concept in a step-by-step fashion, allowing the reader to fully understand how to find the solution to each sample problem. The book notes the importance of each concept, explains the theory behind the concept, and demonstrates the method to solve each problem. Additional practice questions are also offered at the end of each chapter for further review.
