This textbook provides a thorough introduction to the essential mathematical techniques needed in the physical sciences. Carefully structured as a series of self–paced and self–contained chapters, this text covers the basic techniques on which more advanced material is built. Starting with arithmetic and algebra, the text then moves on to cover basic elements of geometry, vector algebra, differentiation and finally integration, all within an applied environment. The reader is guided through these different techniques with the help of numerous worked examples, applications, problems, figures, and summaries. The authors provide high–quality and thoroughly class–tested material to meet the changing needs of science students. The book: ∗ Is a carefully structured text, with self–contained chapters. ∗ Gradually introduces mathematical techniques within an applied environment. ∗ Includes many worked examples, applications, problems, and summaries in each chapter. This text is an essential resource for all students of physics, chemistry and engineering, needing to develop or refresh their knowledge of basic mathematics. The book′s structure makes it equally valuable for course use, home study or distance learning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Basic Maths book by far! 15 Nov 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Most Maths books I tried either go way over my head or concentrate on the easy stuff. This book is the best Basic Maths book I've ever come across. It goes into detail (without dumming down too much) and it helped enormously when I did a Level 2 Physics course with the OU. Where they did not explain the Maths enough, I just dipped into this book and went EUREKA!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 31 Mar 2004
Format:Paperback
I really like the design of this book. Every section pre-tests you to find out your strengths and weaknesses, so you'll know whether you can skip it or have to backtrack to an earlier section. This means that you can tackle the book at your own pace; either following in meticulous detail when you need it or just getting straight to the point when all you need is a refresher course. A lot of other textbooks could benefit from this sort of approach.
This book covers the basic algebra, vectors, geometry and calculus. There's also a second book that covers complex numbers, differential equations and vector calculus that's every bit as good.
