Book Description

Rattan and Klingbeil’s Introductory Mathematics for Engineering Applications is designed to help improve engineering student success through application-driven, just-in-time engineering math instruction. Intended to be taught by engineering faculty rather than math faculty, the text emphasizes using math to solve engineering problems instead of focusing on derivations and theory. This text implements an applied approach to teaching math concepts that are essential to introductory engineering courses that has been proven to improve the retention of students in engineering majors from the first to second year and beyond.

5All the math I need to get started in understanding physics as it applies to engineering applications
By Todds Books
Most college textbooks on mathematics are written by mathematicians (and I think to impress other mathematicians), so the focus tends to be on the mathematical underpinnings of a particular topic rather than a practical application of the topic. To put this into perspective, it is like having to learn about friction coefficients, gear ratios, hydraulic mechanics, and levers in order to shift your automatic transmission. This book does three things really well: the focus is on applications, it gives lots of problems to work, and it puts in one volume most of the math topics you need to get started in math as it applies to engineering. It starts out with some algebra and pre-calculus applications, and then moves through trig, differential and integral calculus, and ends with some applications of differential equations. If you want to know how to apply those topics in your current math textbook that have practical application, then you will want this book.

By Ray Z.
If you're looking at buying or renting this book, you probably don't have much of a choice as far as whether to get it or not. I needed this book for a class, so I had to get it. I rented it from here for $19 instead of my university bookstore, which would have cost over $50. This textbook has several typos and errors in the text and end of chapter problems. However, this is a first edition textbook, so it could be worse. Maybe the authors will go back and fix the errors in a later edition.

Good book for new engineering students. Lots of example problems, logical progression of information, and well written.
