Suitable for NVQ and GNVQ courses, this book consolidates basic mathematical principles and establishes a common base for further progress. It includes coverage of simple engineering systems, generation of numerical values for system parameters, and manipulation of data to determine system response in defined conditions.
Together with Technician Mathematics 3, this third edition has been revised and expanded to cover the BTEC Mathematics for Engineers module for National Certificate and Diploma. It is also suitable for NVQ and GNVQ courses, and is a valuable reference for GCSE Mathematics students. Consolidates basic mathematical principles and establishes a common base for further progress. Includes coverage of simple engineering systems, generation of numerical values for system parameters, manipulation of data to determine system response in defined conditions, and evaluation of system effects from changes in variables. Increases understanding with over 250 detailed worked problems - plus 800 more problems complete with answers.
