Advanced Maths for Chemists teaches Maths from a “chemical” perspective and is the third of a three part series of texts designed for a first-year university course. It is the Maths required by a Chemist, Chemical Engineer, Chemical Physicist, Molecular Biologist, Biochemist or Biologist. Tutorial questions with fully worked solutions are used and structured on a weekly basis to help the students to self-pace themselves. Coloured molecular structures, graphs and diagrams bring the text alive. Navigation between questions and their solutions is by page numbers for use with your PDF reader.

About the Author

John Parker has 39 years experience of teaching Chemists, and other scientists and engineers at Heriot-Watt University Edinburgh. My research area was Physical and Analytical Chemistry (mass spectrometry) from 1966 onwards. My teaching was mostly in Physical and Analytical Chemistry for years 1 to 5 of BSc, MChem and also Postgrad students using lectures, tutorials and lab classes. During this time I developed and taught Maths to first year Chemists for several years. I believe that Maths must be put in a Chemistry context for the student to grasp its significance and usefulness.
