Experimental Methods available in Paperback
The skills of carrying out experiments, recording and analysing data, and presenting results are vital for students' success. Increasingly, modular science and engineering degrees are including mandatory courses on experimental methods. This book offers both a course text for these modules and an extremely useful manual for students to refer to throughout their degree. A number of practical tasks are also provided to enable students to develop these skills independently.
Bill Bolton's accessible approach to the topic also means that this will be a useful introduction for HND students in FE colleges. Bill Bolton is the author of many textbooks used on technician courses. He has worked in industry, taught in further education, been a UNESCO consultant on technician projects overseas, and also worked as Head of Research, Development and Monitoring at BTEC, and as a consultant of the Further Education Unit (FEU).
