'Discovering Advanced Mathematics' is a series of four books designed to match the new generation of A- and AS-level maths syllabuses and satisfy the requirements of the SCAA Common Core for Mathematics. The books provide unparalleled support for developing modelling and problem-solving skills.
• real opportunities to study advanced mathematics through stimulating and original contexts, questions and modelling tasks
• use of new technology is encouraged throughout – graphics calculators and spreadsheets, for example – but tasks are accessible to students with the most basic of A-level calculators
• accessible to all of your students because of careful introduction of major concepts and language level
'Mechanics' Ted Graham
New contexts, applications and modelling techniques: balancing birds to designing
a cycle track; building a baby's cradle to bungee jumping. mechanics interprets
A-level topics through new contexts, applications and modelling techniques.
"I particularly like the range of modern applications involved in the book…this is a first class mechanics textbook…"
