Preface to Basic Engineering Mathematics PDF


awareness of mathematical concepts for students needing a broad base for further vocational studies. In this third edition, new material has been added on the introduction to differential and integral calculus.

The text covers:

  • (i) the Applied Mathematics content of the GNVQ mandatory unit ‘Applied Science and Mathematics for Engineering’ at Intermediate level (i.e. GNVQ 2)
  • (ii) the mandatory ‘Mathematics for Engineering’ at Advanced level (i.e. GNVQ 3) in Engineering
  • (iii) the optional ‘Applied Mathematics for Engineering’ at Advanced level (i.e. GNVQ 3) in Engineering
  • (iv) the Mathematics content of ‘Applied Science and Mathematics for Technicians’ for Edexcel/BTEC First Certificate (Basic Engineering Mathematics by John Bird)
  • (v) the mandatory ‘Mathematics for Technicians’ for National Certificate and National Diploma in Engineering
  • (vi) Mathematics 1 for City & Guilds Technician Certificate in Telecommunications and Electronics Engineering
  • (vii) basic mathematics for a wide range of introductory/access/foundation mathematics courses
  • (viii) GCSE revision and for similar mathematics courses in English-speaking countries worldwide. 

Basic Engineering Mathematics, 3rd edition provides a lead into Engineering Mathematics. (Basic Engineering Mathematics by John Bird)

Each topic considered in the text is presented in a way that assumes in the reader little previous knowledge of that topic.

The theory is introduced in each chapter by a brief outline of essential theory, definitions, formulae, laws, and procedures. (Basic Engineering Mathematics by John Bird)

However, these are kept to a minimum, for problem-solving is extensively used to establish and exemplify the theory.

It is intended that readers will gain real understanding through seeing problems solved and then solving similar problems themselves. (Basic Engineering Mathematics by John Bird)

This textbook contains some 575 worked problems, followed by over 1000 further problems (all with answers – at the end of the book).

The further problems are contained within some 118 Exercises; each Exercise follows on directly from the relevant section of work. (Basic Engineering Mathematics by John Bird)

260 line diagrams enhance the understanding of the theory. Where at all possible the problems mirror practical situations found in engineering and science.

At regular intervals throughout the text are fifteen Assignments to check to understand. For example, Assignment 1 covers material contained in Chapters 1 and 2, Assignment 2 covers the material contained in Chapters 3 and 4, and so on.

These Assignments do not have answers given since it is envisaged that lecturers could set the Assignments for students to attempt as part of their course structure. (Basic Engineering Mathematics by John Bird)

Lecturers’ may obtain a complimentary set of solutions of the Assignments in an Instructor’s Manual available from the publishers via the internet – see below. (Basic Engineering Mathematics by John Bird)

At the end of the book, a list of relevant formulae contained within the text is included for the convenience of reference. ‘Learning by Example’ is at the heart of Early Engineering Mathematics
