A Mathematics Companion for Science and Engineering Students
Never let rusty mathematics skills hinder success in your engineering or science courses! Here are just some of the questions answered in this book: How can: BLa logarithm be converted from one base to another? (Chapter 7) BLsimultaneous linear equations be solved by hand painlessly? (Chapter 9) BLsome infinities be bigger than others? (Epilogue) Designed for undergraduate students, A Mathematics Companion for Science and Engineering Students provides a valuable reference for a wide variety of topics in precalculus mathematics. The presentation is brief and to-the-point, but also precise, accurate, and complete. Learn how to read mathematical discourse, write mathematics appropriately, and think in a way that is conducive to solving mathematical problems. Topics covered include: logic, sets, numbers, sequences, functions, powers and roots, exponentials and logarithms, possibility and probability, matrices, Euclidean geometry, analytic geometry, and the application of mathematics to experimental data. The epilogue introduces advanced topics from calculus and beyond.
A large appendix offers 360 problems with fully detailed solutions so students can assess their basic mathematical knowledge and practice their skills.
