Revised to meet the needs of the wide range of students beginning engineering courses, the fifth edition of this text has an extended "Foundation" section including new chapters on graphs, trigonometry, and binomial series and functions. As an introductory mathematics course for students on science and engineering degrees and pre-degree courses, it is suitable for both classroom use and self study. The new CD-ROM included with the book provides stepped hints, worked solutions and immediate feedback on exercises and problems. It has a user friendly interface and intuitive design. A networkable version is also available with a channelling of student progress through to the tutor.
Der Verlag über das Buch
Engineering Mathematics takes students through the mathematics in a step-by-step fashion, using a wealth of examples and exercises. The book is divided into two sections with the Foundations section starting at level 0 of the IEng syllabus and the main section extending over all elements of a first year undergraduate course. The book therefore suits a full range of abilities and levels of access. A new CD-ROM acts as a personal tutor guiding students though exercises. A multi-user version is available for course tutors to set tutorial sessions and assessments with channelled feedback.
NEW respected and experienced author on board
NEW Quizzes and Can You? checklists guide the reader through the course and focus understanding
NEW Expanded Foundation section means access for even more students, including those with GCSE entry level

A much copied, but never equalled approach which leads the student through the mathematics until they can do it - learning by doing.Alle Produktbeschreibungen
Jedoch hatte ich schon immer Schwierigkeiten mit der Mathematik, und die Annahme, ich würde alle Einzelheiten gleich kapieren führte wohl dazu, dass immer größere Lücken entstanden sind, die nach und nach das Verständnis der komplexeren Konzepte die für ein Ingenieurstudium üblich sind deutlich erschwerten.
Also habe ich etwas recherchiert und kam auf "Engineering Mathematics" von K.A. Stroud. Es wurde von vielen britischen Studenten, mit denen ich kommuniziert habe, hochlobend empfohlen. Der Preis entspricht dem Mittelwert für solche Bücher, aber das trügt, denn Stroud enthält all den Stoff, was man in *drei* Bändern des Papula kriegt, was locker einen Hunderter kosten würde.
Aber die Leistung! JETZT verstehe ich, wieso alle schwärmen! Die Autoren nehmen so gut wie gar keine Vorkenntnisse an, und das Buch ist übersichtlich und modular gestaltet. Zentral ist das pädagogische Konzept des "Programme", (Themenbereich, z.B. Arithmetik, oder Differenzialrechnung). Der Stoff wird dann in "Frames" aufgeteilt, die dann mit Übungen abwechseln, z.B.:
Frame 1: Rechenregel: Jede zahl hoch 1 ist gleich sich selbst. [Hier kommt ein Beispiel, mit Beweis]. Also ist 99 hoch 1... (nächster Frame)
Frame 2: [ 99 ] weil...Lesen Sie weiter... ›

However, there is now a caveat. In my opinion, the publishers made an unfortunate decision to publish this in one volume. It needs to be published in two parts. While publishing in one volume may reduce costs, it is definitely not user-friendly. Its now weighs almost 6-1/2 pounds. This makes it very, very difficult, perhaps impossible, to carry and use easily. Its weight requires a table, or large book support, be used to work comfortably. The previous edition was almost two pounds lighter, and had a smaller size, making that edition comfortable to handle. I had no problem carrying it with me to refer to as time allowed. The weight and size of this edition make that, for me, impossible.
This is an excellent text for self-study or as a supplement to a classroom text. It is fairly wide ranging, covering a large portion of the mathematics needed during the first few years of an engineering, or physical science program. However, it is not quite comprehensive, lacking some areas that have gained significant importance in recent times, e.g, discrete transforms. Although some Fourier Series and transforms are covered in the companion volume "Advanced Engineering Mathematics".
The pretests and revision (more commonly called review in the US) sections are quite helpful. The book de-emphasizes formal definitions, as concepts and intuitive descriptions are provided in conjunction with examples. However, in some instances this can lead to problems, where the appropriate problem-solving approach is well-presented but the lack of a formal definition can lead to some "fuzziness". In these cases an inexpensive mathematics dictionary, or standard text, should provide the needed clarity.
Some sections or chapters are quite elementary and may not be needed by many readers. For example, the book starts with an approximately 60 page section on arithmetic.
The book is well designed and laid out with black type, avoiding the distracting overuse of color found in some competing texts. The authors are usually quite clear, and quickly get to the "meat" of a topic. Extra material is kept to a minimum. One section where this is not true is the Programme F.10 (section) on Functions where unneeded, and arguably unhelpful, box graphics are introduced and used fairly extensively to visually denote the the ideas of function input and output. However, the boxes are not standard mathematical constructs for handling functions. In my opinion, these extraneous constructs are an unnecessary distraction, as the function notation carries with it all the structure needed for comprehension, and is what students will see in later work. In reviewing the 6th edition, I had hoped these boxes would be eliminated in later editions. However, they are, unfortunately, retained for this edition.
The book still shows a much earlier publishing heritage as some mathematical terms no longer in common usage are nonetheless retained.
For a book this large in size, there are an unusually small number of errors or misstatements and these are usually obvious. One example where this is not true is when the authors use the terms "range" and "co-domain", page 271, incorrectly as synonyms.
This is an outstanding and well-written book. The book's presentation of desired learning outcomes, i.e., behavioral objectives, at the start of each Programme is excellent. Material is presented in easily digestible short sections that allow for breaks to be taken at almost any time, without the need to stop in the middle of an unfinished section. Pretest quizzes allow readers to determine what sections they can skip and what sections they need to work on. There are very few backward references to previously covered material. A minor deficiency is the lack of more formal definitions. These are usually not needed. In a number of cases they would help aid understanding and reduce the chance of encountering unexpected problems in later work. However, the book's strong emphasis on carefully developing concepts needed to comfortably handle the mathematical manipulation and problem solving skills required for engineering is exceptional.
There are additions in this edition, but if the 6th can be found at a significantly lower price, not the case on Amazon at the time of this review, it would likely serve as well. Owing to its lighter weight and size, that edition may prove even more useful for those who spend considerable time away from their home/office/classroom/etc.
This edition's uncomfortably large size and weight is compensated for by its outstanding content. It continues to deserve the highest recommendation.
As an example: I was looking at the differentiation section. It isn't a difficult topic to be able to do, but sometimes people don't always get the backround education of why you are doing what you are. This book derives the way a derivative is derived. Haha. In all honesty, it tells you why you are doing what you are doing, and effectively teaches you how to perform on real examples as well.
I would highly recommend this book to engineers. I would also recommend it to anyone in a math course in high school or college that they want some extra help on. Or if you are just doing self-study, this book is what you want to buy. Great examples, great teaching style. Organized.
In the seventies this 'Programmed Instruction' was quite a common technique for students in junior colleges and/or trade schools where the requirement was mostly 'know how to do it and forget about theory'. Consequently, if you are a self-learner this book will help you get a good foundation and later, if so inclined, you can get more theory by going with Apostol's Calculus and many other great texts. For those who have forgotten math topics and/or those who really did not 'get it' the first time around this book is an excellent crutch.
This is an excellent learning and review tool. Well worth the price and I recommend it highly.
The book is organized into programmes or mini chapters. Each programme covers a specific topic. The author provides a brief explanation of the concept involved and then worked examples. You then have the opportunity to work a problem, and then a detailed solution is provided right away.
The writing is clear and concise. Each programme is a condensed yet powerful presentation of the basic concepts. The book covers a broad range of topics, but there are some advanced topics that are not included.
In summary, I highly recommend this book.
However, you couldn't ask for a clearer presentation. The author holds your hand and explains and illustrates absolutely everything he presents. Just don't get the idea that by going through this book you have learned everything an engineering student should know about trigonometry, calculus, etc. The big ideas are here, but you'll need other sources and more background to be an expert. Clearly written and practical math books are hard to come by, so I would definitely recommend it as a reference that should be on every engineer's bookshelf.
