Overview

John Bird’s approach to mathematics, based on numerous worked examples and interactive problems, is ideal for level 2 and 3 vocational courses including the BTEC National specifications.

Theory is kept to a minimum, with the emphasis firmly placed on problem-solving skills, making this a thoroughly practical introduction to the mathematics that students need to master.

Now in its seventh edition, Engineering Mathematics has helped thousands of students to succeed in their exams. The new edition includes a section at the start of each chapter that explains and how it relates to real life engineering projects.

It is supported by a fully updated companion website with resources for both students and lecturers. It has 1000 worked problems, 238 multiple-choice questions, and full solutions to all 1800 further questions contained in the 237 practice exercises. All 525 illustrations used in the text can also be downloaded for use in the classroom.
