Basic engineering mathematics by
J. O Bird(
Book
)
53 editions published between 1999 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"John Bird's approach to mathematics, based on numerous worked examples and interactive problems, is ideal for vocational students who require an entrylevel textbook. Theory is kept to a minimum, with the emphasis firmly placed on problemsolving skills, making this a thoroughly practical introduction to the basic mathematics engineering that students need to master. The extensive and thorough topic coverage makes this an ideal introductory textbook for vocational engineering courses, including the BTEC National Specifications. Now in its sixth edition, Basic Engineering Mathematics has helped thousands of students to succeed in their exams. The new edition includes a section at the start of each chapter to explain why the content is important and how it relates to real life. It is also supported by a fully updated companion website with resources for both students and lecturers. The text contains over 750 worked problems and it has full solutions to all 1600 further questions contained in the 161 practice exercises. All 420 illustrations used in the text can be downloaded for use in the classroom"

"Mechanical Engineering Principles offers a studentfriendly introduction to core engineering topics that does not assume any previous background in engineering studies, and as such can act as a core textbook for several engineering courses. Bird and Ross introduce mechanical principles and technology through examples and applications rather than theory. This approach enables students to develop a sound understanding of the engineering principles and their use in practice. Theoretical concepts are supported by over 600 problems and 400 worked answers. The new edition will match up to the latest BTEC National specifications and can also be used on mechanical engineering courses from Levels 2 to 4"
