The most frequent students' criticism of mathematics courses is that they are not clearly relevant to their engineering studies. The most frequent lecturers' criticism is that students background knowledge is insufficient for a first year university course. This book offers an approach to Engineering Mathematics to redress both problems by relating all mathematics topics to their engineering context and by explaining all the crucial areas of background mathematics required. Over 300 worked examples are included, supported by relevant illustrations and graphs. Key chapters include an introductory section of background mathematics and a chapter showing how to set up a problem in mathematical language and how to take a logical approach to its solution. Important areas of discrete mathematics, sets, functions, logic and boolean algebra, and graph theory are also covered. The software package provided with the text allows the student to learn how to use the computer to explore more complex problems and examine the results graphically. In addition, ideas for projects and assignments for continuous assessment using the software are presented in the appendix. Practical and friendly - Over 300 worked examples. Chapter summaries reiterate key concepts. Easy, non-technical style. Tutors manual containing fully worked solutions to exercises and suggested project solutions. Free software disk in book - includes examples of solving equations, matrix operations, numerical integration and differentiation and the Fast Fourier Transform. Engineering applications stressed throughout.
