Mathematical skills and concepts lie at the heart of chemistry, yet they are an aspect of the subject that students fear the most.
Maths for Chemistry recognizes the reality of chemical education today and the challenges faced by many students in equipping themselves with the maths skills necessary to gain a full understanding of chemistry. Working from basic yet fundamental principles, the book builds students' confidence by leading them through the subject in a steady, progressive way.
Opening with an introduction to the "language" of maths and the essential rules of algebra, the book goes on to cover powers, indices, logs and exponential functions, graphical functions, and trigonometry. It then leads students through both differentiation and integration.
The book's modular structure presents material in short, manageable sections to keep the content as accessible and readily digestible as possible. Maths for Chemistry is the perfect introduction to the essential mathematical concepts that all chemistry students should master.
A Companion Website for instructors features figures from the book (available for download) and solutions to end-of-chapter problems.
