Learning technical mathematics can be formidable. As an instructor you face the difficult task of trying to engage and motivate students that are struggling to understand the relevance of technical mathematics to them and their careers. Technical Mathematics with Calculus, Canadian Edition has been developed to help you inspire your students to achieve the positive learning outcomes they need to be successful.
The first Canadian Edition of this well respected text has been carefully developed to build-upon the success of the Fourth Edition whilst introducing critical updates for Canadian instructors and students as suggested by reviewers and colleagues. It is an SI unit text incorporating a small amount of Imperial units where appropriate.
Canadian real-world applications feature throughout the text and illustrate the relevance and usefulness of technical mathematics outside of the classroom. For example, new applications include: the functionality and safety of the Confederation Bridge; the CN Tower as a Microwave Transmitter; dump trucks used in the Northern Alberta Oil Sands; designing and building half-pipes for the 2010 Winter Olympic Games; and many more.
Numerous fully worked examples give students the essential practice they need to learn mathematics as applied to their chosen technical field. Computer projects are given when appropriate, including BASIC, spreadsheets, computer algebra systems, and computer-assisted drafting.
Everything the technical student needs is included, with the emphasis always on clarity and practical applications, Technical Mathematics with Calculus, Canadian Edition provides a solid foundation for a career in any technical field.
