## ABSTRACT

Now in its ninth edition, *Bird’s Engineering Mathematics* has helped thousands of students to succeed in their exams. Mathematical theories are explained in a straightforward manner, supported by practical engineering examples and applications to ensure that readers can relate theory to practice. Some 1,300 engineering situations/problems have been ‘flagged-up’ to help demonstrate that engineering cannot be fully understood without a good knowledge of mathematics.

The extensive and thorough topic coverage makes this a great text for a range of level 2 and 3 engineering courses – such as for aeronautical, construction, electrical, electronic, mechanical, manufacturing engineering and vehicle technology – including for BTEC First, National and Diploma syllabuses, City & Guilds Technician Certificate and Diploma syllabuses, and even for GCSE and A-level revision.

Its companion website at www.routledge.com/cw/bird provides resources for both students and lecturers, including full solutions for all 2,000 further questions, lists of essential formulae, multiple-choice tests, and illustrations, as well as full solutions to revision tests for course instructors.
