Book Description

Provides all the mathematical knowledge and techniques pre-degree and undergraduate students of Engineering need

John Bird's approach, based on numerous worked examples and interactive problems, is ideal for students from a wide range of academic backgrounds, and can be worked through at the student's own pace. Basic mathematical theories are explained in the simplest of terms, supported by practical engineering examples and applications from a wide variety of engineering disciplines, to ensure the reader can relate the theory to actual engineering practice. This extensive and thorough topic coverage makes this an ideal text for a range of university degree modules, Foundation Degrees, and HNC/D units.

An established text which has helped many thousands of students to gain exam success, now in its fifth edition Higher Engineering Mathematics has been further extended with new topics to maximise the book's applicability for first year engineering degree students, and those following Foundation Degrees. New material includes: inequalities; differentiation of parametric equations; differentiation of hyperbolic functions; and homogeneous first order differential equations.

This book also caters specifically for the engineering mathematics units of the Higher National Engineering schemes from Edexcel, including the core unit Analytical Methods for Engineers, and the two specialist units Further Analytical Methods for Engineers and Engineering Mathematics in their entirety, common to both the electrical/electronic engineering and mechanical engineering pathways. A mapping grid is included showing precisely which topics are required for the learning outcomes of each unit, for ease of reference.

The book is supported by a suite of free web downloads:
