Maths for Chemistry Summary


Maths for Chemistry: A Chemist's Toolkit of Calculations by Paul Monk

Mathematical skills and concepts lie at the heart of chemistry, yet they are an aspect of the subject that students fear the most. "Maths for Chemistry" recognizes the reality of chemical education today, and the challenges faced by many students in equipping themselves with the maths skills necessary to gain a full understanding of chemistry. Working from basic yet fundamental principles, the book builds the student's confidence by leading them through the subject in a steady, progressive way. Opening with an introduction to the 'language' of maths and essential rules of algebra, the book goes on to cover powers, indices, logs and exponential functions, graphical functions, and trigonometry, before leading the student through both differentiation and integration. With its modular structure, the book presents material in short, manageable sections to keep the content as accessible and readily digestible as possible. "Maths for Chemistry" is the perfect introduction to the essential mathematical concepts which all chemistry students should master.

Maths for Chemistry Reviews


This book brings something new to the market: a student-friendly text with discussion on the use of mathematical tools in chemistry. I will be recommending it to undergraduates. Annette Taylor, Chemistry World, June 2006 This is a 'must buy' book for any chemistry undergraduate who finds mathematics a challenge. In contrast to some of the other 'mathematics for scientists' books on the market, the material is presented in a manner that does not intimidate. The book is well written and each mathematical step, however small, is clearly explained. Education in Chemistry, January 2007
