Studying engineering, whether it is mechanical, electrical or civil relies heavily on an understanding of mathematics. This new textbook clearly demonstrates the relevance of mathematical principles and shows how to apply them to solve real-life engineering problems.
It deliberately starts at an elementary level so that students who are starting from a low knowledge base will be able to quickly get up to the level required. Students who have not studied mathematics for some time will find this an excellent refresher.
Each chapter starts with the basics before gently increasing in complexity. A full outline of essential definitions, formulae, laws and procedures are introduced before real world situations, practicals and problem solving demonstrate how the theory is applied.
Focusing on learning through practice, it contains examples, supported by 1,600 worked problems and 3,000 further problems contained within exercises throughout the text. In addition, 34 revision tests are included at regular intervals.
An interactive companion website is also provided containing 2,750 further problems with worked solutions and instructor materials

The bestselling first edition of Children's Mathematics helped hundreds of thousands of teachers understand children's intuitive mathematical thinking and use that knowledge to help children learn mathematics with understanding. The highly anticipated Second Edition provides new insights about Cognitively Guided Instruction based on the authors' research and experience in CGI classrooms over the last 15 years. Highlights include:
how children solve problems using their intuitive understanding of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division
the development of children's mathematical thinking throughout the primary grades
instructional practices that promote children's active engagement in mathematics
connections between children's strategies and powerful mathematical concepts
A new expanded collection of over 90 online video episodes illustrating children's mathematical thinking, interactions between students and teachers, and classroom instruction that builds on children's mathematical thinking.
Together, the Second Edition and videos provide a detailed research-based account of the development of children's mathematical thinking and problem solving, and how teachers can promote this development in ways that honor children's thinking.
