Robert D. Smith was Associate Professor Emeritus of Industrial Technology at Central Connecticut State University, New Britain, Connecticut. In addition to his teaching experience, Mr. Smith worked in the manufacturing industry as a tool designer, quality control engineer, and chief manufacturing engineer. He has also been active in teaching applied mathematics, physics, and industrial materials and processes on the secondary school level and in apprenticeship programs. John C. Peterson is a retired Professor of Mathematics at Chattanooga State Community College, Chattanooga, Tennessee, where he received the Teaching Excellence Award. His professional experience includes teaching at middle school, high school, and university levels, as well as work in industry. In addition to MATHEMATICS FOR MACHINE TECHNOLOGY, 8E, Dr. Peterson has authored or co-authored four other Cengage books: INTRODUCTORY TECHNICAL MATHEMATICS, TECHNICAL MATHEMATICS, TECHNICAL MATHEMATICS WITH CALCULUS, and MATH FOR THE AUTOMOTIVE TRADE. A member of the team that revised the 2015 College Board of Mathematical Sciences cross-sectional survey of undergraduate mathematical science programs, Dr. Peterson has also served as a vice president of The American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges. He has published more than 90 journal papers and given more than 200 presentations. Dr. Peterson earned his Ph.D. in mathematics education from The Ohio State University.
