This book presents the generative rules for formal written communication, in an engineering context, through the lens of mathematics. Aimed at engineering students headed for careers in industry and professionals needing a "just in time" writing resource, this pragmatic text covers all that engineers need to become successful workplace writers, and leaves out all pedagogical piffle they do not. Organized into three levels of skill-specific instruction, A Math-Based Writing System for Engineers: Sentence Algebra & Document Algorithms guides readers through the process of building accurate, precise sentences to structuring efficient, effective reports. The book's indexed design provides convenient access for both selective and comprehensive readers, and is ideal for university students; professionals seeking a thorough, "left -brained" treatment of English grammar and "go to" document structures; and ESL engineers at all levels.
