Elementary Mathematics for Engineers explains mathematical jargon and develops the formulae used by engineers from first principles. The first chapter is a summary so the reader can quickly see where further study is needed. The book is in two parts, pure and applied. Pure mathematics covers the following subjects;

• positive, negative, and fractional indices
• logarithms
• partial fractions
• irrational and complex functions
• trigonometrical and hyperbolic functions
• properties of triangles and polygons
• areas and volumes
• rules for differentiation
• methods for integration
• differential equations
• Fourier analysis
• Applied mathematics covers the following subjects;
• forces in equilibrium
• equations of motion and Newton’s laws
• potential and kinetic energy
• conservation of energy
• momentum and angular momentum
• simple harmonic motion
• hanging chains
• gyroscopes
