Chemistry Maths 2 teaches Maths from a “chemical” perspective and is the second of a three part series of texts taken during a first-year university course. It is the Maths required by a Chemist, or Chemical Engineer, Chemical Physicist, Molecular Biologist, Biochemist or Biologist. Tutorial questions with fully worked solutions structured on a weekly basis to help the students to self-pace themselves are used. Coloured molecular structures, graphs and diagrams bring the text alive. Navigation between questions and their solutions is by page numbers used with your PDF reader.

About the author

I was pleased to respond to to write a textbook (which is split into 3 more manageable books, Introductory Maths for Chemists, Intermediate Maths for Chemists, and Advanced Maths for Chemists which should be studied in sequence) that would help chemistry students survive and enjoy the maths required for a chemistry degree. I developed and presented tutorials on maths to our first year chemistry students over several years at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, Scotland. This formed the basis for these workbooks. I would like to thank the staff of Heriot-Watt University for their help; and thank the students who ‘suffered’ these tutorials, hopefully they helped them with their degrees and later careers. Most of all I would like to thank my wife Jennifer for her encouragement and help over many years.

J. E. Parker

I have 39 years experience of teaching chemists, biologists, pharmacists, chemical engineers and other engineers at Heriot-Watt University Edinburgh. My published research from 1966 onwards is in the area of physical chemistry, especially chemical kinetics, spectroscopy, statistical mechanics, quantum mechanics, computational chemistry and the use of mass spectrometric techniques to study single-collision elementary reactions. I published also in analytical chemistry specializing in the fundamental aspects of mass spectrometry. My teaching was mostly in physical chemistry for years one to four of BSc and year five MChem undergraduates and PhD postgraduate students using combinations of lectures, tutorials and lab classes. I realized the importance of maths and in order to help students I taught maths to first year chemists for several years. I believe that maths has to be presented in context emphasizing the applications in chemistry, physics, and biology for students to grasp its significance and importance in science and engineering. I have published five books with running to a total of nine editions in total. I hope you enjoy and find my books useful.
