9780080965628: Engineering Mathematics

  • Colour layout helps navigation and highlights key learning points, formulae and exercises
  • Fully up-to-date with Levels 2 and 3 of the BTEC Engineering Specifications
  • Containing 1000 worked problems, 1750 further problems and 238 multiple-choice questions and answers
  • Real-world situations and engineering examples put the theory into context

John Bird’s approach to mathematics, based on numerous worked examples supported by problems, is ideal for students of a wide range of abilities. Theory is kept to a minimum, with the emphasis firmly placed on problem-solving skills, making this a thoroughly practical introduction to the mathematics engineering that students need to master.

This book presents a logical topic progression rather than following the structure of a particular syllabus, and is suitable for all Level 3 vocational students, early Foundation Degree students and for any introductory course involving engineering mathematics. However, the coverage has been carefully matched to the mathematics units within the 2010 Level 2 and 3 BTEC National Specifications.

In this sixth edition there is new material on logarithms, exponential functions, vectors, and methods of alternating waveforms. The book now includes even more problems to work through.

Ideal for use as tests or homework, full solutions to the revision tests are supplied on the accompanying instructor’s website.
