Written by students for students, this book offers a refreshing, new approach to making the transition into undergraduate-level mathematics or a similar numerate degree. The book contains chapters rich with worked examples and exercises.
Helps to ease the transition between school/college and university mathematics by (re)introducing readers to a range of topics that they will meet in the first year of a degree course in the mathematical sciences, refreshing their knowledge of basic techniques and focussing on areas that are often perceived as the most challenging.
Each chapter starts with a "Test Yourself" section so that readers can monitor their progress and readily identify areas where their understanding is incomplete.
A range of exercises, complete with full solutions, makes the book ideal for self-study.
Inequalities.- Trigonometry, Differentiation and Exponents.- Polar Coordinates.- Complex Numbers.- Vectors.- Matrices.- Matrices as Maps.- Separable Differential Equations.- Integrating Factors.- Mechanics.- Logic, Sets and Functions.- Proof Methods.- Probability.- Distributions.- Making Decisions.- Geometry.- Hyperbolic Trigonometry.- Motion and Curvature.- Sequences.- Series.
