“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].
"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.
