qWhat do you assume your students know? What material do you expect them to have a vague idea about (say the proof of Taylor's Theorem) and what material do you want students to know thoroughly (say the derivative of sin x)? This book is an attempt to define what material students should have completely mastered at each year in an applied mathematics, engineering or science degree. Naturally we would like our students to know more than the bare essentials detailed in this book. However, most students do not get full marks in their previous courses and a few weeks after the exam will only remember a small fraction of a course. They are also doing many other courses not involving mathematics and are not constantly using their mathematical skills. This book can then act as guide to what material should realistically be remembered from previous courses. Naturally both the material and the year in which the students see this material will vary from university to university. This book represents what we feel is appropriate to our students during their degrees.q--Provided by publisher.This book is an attempt to define what material students should have completely mastered at each year in an applied mathematics, engineering or science degree.
