Description

This complete entry-level textbook from leading authors gives students the confidence they need to succeed in core mathematics skills in preparation for undergraduate courses in engineering or science, or to build skills to support the mathematical elements of other degree courses. Its unique programmed approach takes students through the mathematics they need in a step-by-step fashion with a wealth of examples and exercises. The text demands that students engage with it by asking them to complete steps that they can manage from previous examples or knowledge they have acquired, while carefully introducing new steps. By working with the authors through the examples, students become proficient as they go. By the time they come to trying examples on their own, confidence is high.

The text is aimed at students on Foundation courses in engineering, construction, science and computer science, and for all mathematics courses for students of business studies, psychology, and geography.
