John Bird's approach, based on numerous worked examples and interactive problems, is ideal for students from a wide range of academic backgrounds, and can be worked through at the student's own pace. Basic mathematical theories are explained in a straightforward manner, being supported by practical engineering examples and applications in order to ensure that readers can relate theory to practice. The extensive and thorough topic coverage makes this an ideal text for a range of university degree modules, foundation degrees, and HNC/D units. Now in its sixth edition, "Higher Engineering Mathematics" is an established textbook that has helped many thousands of students to gain exam success. It has been updated to maximise the book's suitability for first year engineering degree students and those following foundation degrees. This book also caters specifically for the engineering mathematics units of the Higher National Engineering schemes from Edexcel. As such it includes the core unit, Analytical Methods for Engineers, and two specialist units, Further Analytical Methods for Engineers and Engineering Mathematics, both of which are common to the electrical/electronic engineering and mechanical engineering pathways. For ease of reference a mapping grid is included that shows precisely which topics are required for the learning outcomes of each unit. The book is supported by a suite of free web downloads: Introductory-level algebra - to enable students to revise the basic algebra needed for engineering courses; Instructor's Manual - featuring full worked solutions and mark schemes for all of the assignments in the book and the remedial algebra assignment; and, Extensive Solutions Manual - 640 pages featuring worked solutions for 1,000 of the further problems and exercises in the book. Unique in introducing higher mathematical concepts from an engineering perspective, ensuring that readers understand what they need to do in order to turn theory into practice, this title is fully mapped to BTEC Higher National Engineering and Foundation Degree unit specifications. Free instructor's manual available online and contains worked solutions and a suggested mark scheme.
