Covering the basic mathematics taught to first year students of science and engineering, this textbook reflects the growing awareness that ancillary mathematics should not be taught in isolation from its applications. Topics covered include calculus, ordinary and partial differential equations, and statistics. Each chapter starts with two or three examples setting the new techniques to be studied in the context of the scientific world; the mathematics is then presented, along with worked examples. Numerical methods are integrated with analytical techniques where appropriate.

Basic functions
Functions for science I: the exponential functions
Functions for science II: trigonometric functions
Functions for science III: inverse functions
Other functions of science
Differentiation I: rates of change
Differentiation II: stationary points
Differentiation III: approximation of functions
Integration I: introduction and standard forms
Integration II: techniques of integration
Integration III: further techniques
First-order differential equations
Second-order ordinary differential equations
Statistics I: frequency distributions and associated measures
Statistics II: probability and probability distributions
Statistics III: sampling, sampling distributions and hypothesis testing
Partial differentiation I: introduction
Partial differentiation II: stationary points
Answers to the exercises
