Description

"Free ebooks + free videos = better education" is the equation that describes this book's commitment to free and open education across the globe. Download the book and discover free video lessons on the Author's YouTube channel.

"Engineering Mathematics: YouTube Workbook” takes learning to a new level by combining free written lessons with free online video tutorials. Each section within the workbook is linked to a video lesson on YouTube where the author discusses and solves problems step-by-step.

The combination of written text with interactive video offers a high degree of learning flexibility by enabling the student to take control of the pace of their learning delivery. For example, key mathematical concepts can be reinforced or more deeply considered by rewinding or pausing the video. Due to these learning materials being freely available online, students can access them at a time and geographical location that suits their needs.

Author, Dr Chris Tisdell, is a mathematician at UNSW, Sydney and a YouTube Partner in Education. He is passionate about free educational resources. Chris' YouTube mathematics videos have enjoyed a truly global reach, being seen by learners in every country on earth.

Preface

How to use this workbook

This workbook is designed to be used in conjunction with the author's free online video tutorials. Inside this workbook each chapter is divided into learning modules (subsections), each having its own dedicated video tutorial.

View the online video via the hyperlink located at the top of the page of each learning module, with workbook and paper / tablet at the ready. Or click on the Engineering Mathematics YouTube Workbook playlist where all the videos for the workbook are located in chronological order:

Engineering Mathematics YouTube Workbook Playlist

While watching each video, fill in the spaces provided after each example in the workbook and annotate to the associated text.

You can also access the above via the author's YouTube channel Dr Chris Tisdell's YouTube Channel

The delivery method for each learning module in the workbook is as follows:

  1. Briefly motivate the topic under consideration;
  2. Carefully discuss a concrete example;
  3. Mention how the ideas generalize;
  4. Provide a few exercises (with answers) for the reader to try.

Incorporating YouTube as an educational tool means enhanced eLearning benefits, for example, the student can easily control the delivery of learning by pausing, rewinding (or fast-forwarding) the video as needed.

The subject material is based on the author's lectures to engineering students at UNSW, Sydney. The style is informal. It is anticipated that most readers will use this workbook as a revision tool and have their own set of problems to solve -- this is one reason why the number of exercises herein are limited.

Two semesters of calculus is an essential prerequisite for anyone using this workbook.

About the Author

“With more than a million YouTube hits, Dr Chris Tisdell is the equivalent of a best-selling author or chart-topping musician. And the unlikely subject of this mass popularity? University mathematics.” [Sydney Morning Herald, 14/6/2012 http://ow.ly/o7gti].

Chris Tisdell has been inspiring, motivating and engaging large mathematics classes at UNSW, Sydney for over a decade. His lectures are performance-like, with emphasis on contextualisation, clarity in presentation and a strong connection between student and teacher.

He blends the live experience with out-of-class learning, underpinned by flexibility, sharing and openness. Enabling this has been his creation, freely sharing and management of future-oriented online learning resources, known as Open Educational Resources (OER). They are designed to empower learners by granting them unlimited access to knowledge at a time, location and pace that suits their needs. This includes: hundreds of YouTube educational videos of his lectures and tutorials; an etextbook with each section strategically linked with his online videos; and live interactive classes streamed over the internet.

His approach has changed the way students learn mathematics, moving from a traditional closed classroom environment to an open, flexible and forward-looking learning model.

Indicators of esteem include: a prestigious educational partnership with Google; an etextbook with over 500,000 unique downloads; mathematics videos enjoying millions of hits from over 200 countries; a UNSW Vice-Chancellor’s Award for Teaching Excellence; and 100% student satisfaction rating in teaching surveys across 15 different courses at UNSW over eight years.

Chris has been an educational consultant to The Australian Broadcasting Corporation and has advised the Chief Scientist of Australia on educational policy.

Reviews

Chiva ★★★★★

I think it is a really good book for me as a student when I research. Also, it is really useful for every student.

DAVID ★★★★★

Best of its kind but should contain simpler examples

Adam ★★★★☆

very good when it comes to tackling technical problems

Mohamed Anas ★★★★★

AWESOME, it covers the sufficient amount of subject areas than I expected. And yeah YOUTUBE VIDEOS, <<--- PURE AWESOME

Aidan O'Brien ★★★★★

It was an amazingly useful textbook. I was doing Engineering Maths at the time and the way that Dr Tisdell explained the concepts was a breath of fresh air from the hour long lecture format. It was a great way to understand the concepts. Definitely passed the subject with a lot less effort because of this textbook than I would have otherwise.
