This best-selling text by John Taylor introduces the study of uncertainties to lower division science students. Assuming no prior knowledge, the author introduces error analysis through the use of familiar examples ranging from carpentry to well-known historic experiments. Pertinent worked examples, simple exercises throughout the text, and numerous chapter ending problems combine to make the book ideal for use in physics, chemistry, and engineering lab courses.

Introduces error analysis to lower division science students through familiar examples, from carpentry to historic experiments, plus fully-worked exercises.

John R. Taylor is Professor of Physics and Presidential Teaching Scholar at the University of Colorado in Boulder.
