**Were you looking for the book with access to MyLabMath Global? This product is the book alone, and does NOT come with access to MyLabMath Global. Buy Mathematics for Engineers, 5e by Croft with MyLabMaths Global access card 5e (ISBN 9781292267685) if you need access to the MyLab as well, and save money on this brilliant resource.**

* **Mathematics for Engineers* introduces Engineering students to Maths, building up right from the basics. Examples and questions throughout help students to learn through practice and applications sections labelled by engineering stream encourage an applied and fuller understanding.

Understanding key mathematical concepts and applying them successfully to solve problems are vital skills that all engineering students must acquire. Mathematics for Engineers teaches, develops and nurtures those skills. Practical, informal and accessible, it begins with the foundations and gradually builds upon this knowledge as it introduces more complex concepts to cover all requirements for a first year engineering maths course, together with introductory material for even more advanced topics.

**Need extra support?**

Index

Understanding key mathematical concepts and applying them successfully to solve problems are vital skills that all engineering students must acquire. *Mathematics for Engineers* introduces, teaches, develops and nurtures those skills. Practical, informal and accessible, it begins with the foundations and gradually builds upon this knowledge as it introduces more complex concepts until you have learned everything you will need for your first year engineering mathematics course, together with a wealth of introductory material for even more advanced topics such as Laplace and Fourier transforms and partial differential equations.
