new E Book for Engineering mathematics all Semester - Maths A Student's Survival Guide
Mathematics underpins all science and engineering degrees, and this may cause problems for students whose understanding of the subject is weak. In this book Jenny Olive uses her extensive experience of teaching and helping students by giving a clear and confident presentation of the core mathematics needed by students starting science or engineering courses. Each topic is introduced very gently, beginning with simple examples that bring out the basics, and then moving on to tackle more challenging problems. The author takes the time to explain the tricks of the trade and also shortcuts, but is careful to explain common errors allowing students to anticipate and avoid them.The book contains more than 820 execises, with detailed solutions given in the back to allow students who get stuck to see exactly where they have gone wrong. Topics covered include trigonometry and hyperbolic functions, sequences and series (with detailed coverage of binomial series), differentiation and integration, complex numbers, and vectors. This self-study guide to introductory college mathematics will be invaluable to students who want to brush up on the subject before starting their course, or to help them develop their skills and understanding while at university.
