Mathematics is crucial to all aspects of engineering and technology. Understanding key mathematical concepts and applying them successfully to solve problems are vital skills every engineering student must acquire. This text teaches, applies and nurtures those skills. Mathematics for Engineers is informal, accessible and practically oriented. The material is structured so students build up their knowledge and understanding gradually. The interactive examples have been carefully designed to encourage students to engage fully in the problem-solving process. MyMathLab(r) is a series of text-specific, easily customizable online courses for Prentice Hall textbooks in mathematics and statistics. Powered by CourseCompass (Pearson Education's online teaching and learning environment) and MathXL(r) (our online homework, tutorial, and assessment system), MyMathLab gives you the tools you need to deliver all or a portion of your course online, whether your students are in a lab setting or working from home.
