Never let rusty mathematics skills hinder success in your engineering or science courses! Here are just some of the questions answered in this book: How can:* a logarithm be converted from one base to another? (Chapter 7)* simultaneous linear equations be solved by hand painlessly? (Chapter 9)* some infinities be bigger than others? (Epilogue)Designed for undergraduate students, A Mathematics Companion for Science and Engineering Students provides a valuable reference for a wide variety of topics in precalculus mathematics. The presentation is brief and to-the-point, but also precise, accurate, and complete. Learn how to read mathematical discourse, write mathematics appropriately, and think in a way that is conducive to solving mathematical problems. Topics covered include: logic, sets, numbers, sequences, functions, powers and roots, exponentials and logarithms, possibility and probability, matrices,Euclidean geometry, analytic geometry, and the application of mathematics to experimental data. The epilogue introduces advanced topics from calculus and beyond. A large appendix offers 360 problems with fully detailed solutions so students can assess their basic mathematical knowledge and practicetheir skills.
