Preface

This text provides an introductory mathematics course at pre-degree level for students following science/engineering/technicians courses. The course leads the student from basic mathematical techniques through algebra and geometry to trigonometry, statistics and calculus, by means of clear explanations and many worked examples. There are many “self tests” to check understanding as the chapters progress, and each chapter concludes with exercises which summarize and extend the topics covered.
