Product description

From the Back Cover

Foundation Maths has been written for students taking higher and further education courses who have not specialised in mathematics on post-16 qualifications and need to use mathematical tools in their courses. It is ideally suited to those studying marketing, business studies, management, science, engineering, social science, geography, combined studies and design. It will be useful for those who lack confidence and who need careful, steady guidance in mathematical methods. For those whose mathematical expertise is already established, the book will be a helpful revision and reference guide. The style of the book also makes it suitable for self-study and distance learning. 

Features of the book

·    Mathematical processes are described in everyday language – mathematical ideas are usually developed by example rather than formal proof, thereby encouraging students’ learning.

·    Key points highlight important results that need to be referred to easily or remembered.

·    Worked examples are included throughout the book to reinforce learning.

·    Self-assessment questions are provided at the end of most sections to test understanding of important parts of the section. Answers are given at the back of the book.

·    Exercises provide a key opportunity to develop competence and understanding through practice. Answers are given at the back of the book.

 

* Demanding, Challenge Exercises are included at the end of  most Chapters to stretch the keenest students

·    Test and assignment exercises (with answers provided in a separate Lecturers’ Solutions Manual on the website) allow lecturers and tutors to set regular assignments or tests throughout the course.

·    Companion website containing a student support pack, video tutorials, and PowerPoint slides and a Solutions Manual for lecturers, can be found at www.pearsoned.co.uk/croft

New to this sixth edition

·    Fully integrated with MyMathLab, a powerful online homework, tutorial and self-study system.

·    Video tutorials on the companion website for selected exercises and examples.

·    New chapter on Complex Numbers

·    Additional material on partial fractions
