Undergraduate engineering students need good mathematics skills. This textbook supports this need by placing a strong emphasis on visualization and the methods and tools needed across the whole of engineering. The visual approach is emphasized, and excessive proofs and derivations are avoided. The visual images explain and teach the mathematical methods. The book's website provides dynamic and interactive codes in Mathematica to accompany the examples for the reader to explore on their own with Mathematica or the free Wolfram Player, and it provides access for instructors to a solutions manual.
  • Strongly emphasizes a visual approach to engineering mathematics

  • Written for years 2 to 4 of an engineering degree course

  • Website offers support with dynamic and interactive Mathematica code and instructor's solutions manual
