This book is a comprehensive maths text for undergraduates in the engineering disciplines. However, it does not assume a strong mathematical background, and is designed to lead students through the learning curve they face from the starting point of the lower grades of maths A-level, or a typical GNVQ/BTEC National background. The maths is set firmly in context, with applications drawn from mechanical, electrical, electronic and control engineering, mechanical science and electrical science, and mathematical principles are clearly explained and deduced to encourage mathematical thinking.
The essential mathematics textbook for first-year students
Features step-by-step explanations for independent learning making it ideal for groups with a wide range of prior knowledge; mathematics is set firmly in engineering contextsFoundation level material included as well as full coverage for first year modules, also ideal for HNC/HND; this is the book that will help students survive the learning curve faced at the outset of a degree course
