Written for students without mathematics A level who are entering an engineering or applied science degree via a preliminary year. The book introduces the basic ideas of mathematics through applications in physics and engineering, providing a firm foundation in functions and calculus for the subsequent degree. Students are encouraged to use computers and calculators effectively and to develop skills in mathematical modelling.

An accessible, step-by-step approach to teaching mathematics with today's engineering student in mind. The content is divided into manageable pieces of work ('blocks') focusing on one specific technique and the explanations are gradually developed through fully and part-worked examples. Highlighted key points and use of icons throughout the book aid understanding of the mathematical concepts being presented.

Since its original publication in 1969, Mathematics for Engineers and Scientists has built a solid foundation in mathematics for legions of undergraduate science and engineering students. It continues to do so, but as the influence of computers has grown and syllabi have evolved, once again the time has come for a new edition. Thoroughly revised to meet the needs of today's curricula, Mathematics for Engineers and Scientists, Sixth Edition covers all of the topics typically introduced to first- or second-year engineering students, from number systems, functions, and vectors to series, differential equations, and numerical analysis. Among the most significant revisions to this edition are: Simplified presentation of many topics and expanded explanations that further ease the comprehension of incoming engineering students A new chapter on double integrals Many more exercises, applications, and worked examples A new chapter introducing the MATLAB and Maple software packages Although designed as a textbook with problem sets in each chapter and selected answers at the end of the book, Mathematics for Engineers and Scientists, Sixth Edition serves equally well as a supplemental text and for self-study. The author strongly encourages readers to make use of computer algebra software, to experiment with it, and to learn more about mathematical functions and the operations that it can perform.

This book is intended primarily for students without science A-levels or the equivalent who are entering an engineering degree or Higher National Diploma course via a foundation year. In this new edition the coverage has been extended to include five new topics: one deals with the nucleus, and the others extend the discussion of materials into the first year degree and diploma context. There is a new appendix on calculation technique.

Foundation Maths has been written for students taking higher and further education courses who have not specialised in mathematics on post-16 qualifications and need to use mathematical tools in their courses. It is ideally suited to those studying marketing, business studies, management, science, engineering, social science, geography, combined studies and design. It will be useful for those who lack confidence and who need careful, steady guidance in mathematical methods. For those whose mathematical expertise is already established, the book will be a helpful revision and reference guide. The style of the book also makes it suitable for self-study and distance learning. Features of the book Mathematical processes are described in everyday language mathematical ideas are usually developed by example rather than formal proof, thereby encouraging students' learning. Key points highlight important results that need to be referred to easily or remembered. Worked examples are included throughout the book to reinforce learning. Self-assessment questions are provided at the END of most sections to test understanding of important parts of the section. Answers are given at the back of the book. Exercises provide a key opportunity to develop competence and understanding through practice. Answers are given at the back of the book. Test and assignment exercises (with answers provided in a separate Lecturers' Manual on the website) allow lecturers and tutors to set regular assignments or tests throughout the course. New to this EDITION Six new chapters: Chapter 4 Sets, Chapter 8 Number Bases, Chapter 9 Elementary Logic, Chapter 31 Integration by Parts, Chapter 36 Correlation and Chapter 37 Regression. Extra END-of-chapter questions for students (with answers) on the website at www.pearsoned.co.uk/croft . PowerPoint slides for lecturers on the website featuring Key Points from the book with their related Worked Examples. Anthony Croft has taught mathematics in further and higher education institutions for twenty four years. He is currently Director of the Mathematics Education Centre at Loughborough university, which has been designated a Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning by the Higher Education Funding Council for England. He teaches mathematics and engineering undergraduates, and has championed mathematics support for students who find the transition from school to university difficult and for students with learning difficulties. He has AUTHORed many very successful mathematics textbooks including several for engineering students. Robert Davison has twenty five years experience teaching mathematics in both further and higher education. He is currently Head of Quality in the Faculty of Computing Sciences and Engineering at De Montfort University, where he also teaches mathematics.

A convenient single source for vital mathematical concepts, written by engineers and for engineers. Builds a strong foundation in modern applied mathematics for engineering students, and offers them a concise and comprehensive treatment that summarizes and unifies their mathematical knowledge using a system focused on basic concepts rather than exhaustive theorems and proofs. The authors provide several levels of explanation and exercises involving increasing degrees of mathematical difficulty to recall and develop basic topics such as calculus, determinants, Gaussian elimination, differential equations, and functions of a complex variable. They include an assortment of examples ranging from simple illustrations to highly involved problems as well as a number of applications that demonstrate the concepts and methods discussed throughout the book. This broad treatment also offers:* Key mathematical tools needed by engineers working in communications, semiconductor device simulation, and control theory * Concise coverage of fundamental concepts such as sets, mappings, and linearity * Thorough discussion of topics such as distance, inner product, and orthogonality * Essentials of operator equations, theory of approximations, transform methods, and partial differential equationsIt makes an excellent companion to less general engineering texts and a useful reference for practitioners.

Engineering Mathematics is a comprehensive pre-degree maths text for vocational courses and foundation modules at degree level in the U.K.. John Bird's approach, based on numerous worked examples supported by problems, is ideal for students of a wide range of abilities, and can be worked through at the student's own pace. Theory is kept to a minimum, placing a firm emphasis on problem-solving skills, and making this a thoroughly practical introduction to the core mathematics needed for engineering studies and practice. Throughout the book assessment papers are provided that are ideal for use as tests or homework. These are the only problems where answers are not provided in the book. Full worked solutions are available to lecturers only as a free download from the Newnes website: www.newnespress.com

The Handbook of Mathematics for Engineers and Scientists covers the main fields of mathematics and focuses on the methods used for obtaining solutions of various classes of mathematical equations that underlie the mathematical modeling of numerous phenomena and processes in science and technology. To accommodate different mathematical backgrounds, the preeminent authors outline the material in a simplified, schematic manner, avoiding special terminology wherever possible. Organized in ascending order of complexity, the material is divided into two parts. The first part is a coherent survey of the most important definitions, formulas, equations, methods, and theorems. It covers arithmetic, elementary and analytic geometry, algebra, differential and integral calculus, special functions, calculus of variations, and probability theory. Numerous specific examples clarify the methods for solving problems and equations. The second part provides many in-depth mathematical tables, including those of exact solutions of various types of equations. This concise, comprehensive compendium of mathematical definitions, formulas, and theorems provides the foundation for exploring scientific and technological phenomena.
