A new kind of textbook for a new type of course, the authors of Introductory Mathematics for Engineering Applications have developed a new approach to engineering math that improves student motivation and success, and supports greater retention of engineering majors. Designed specifically for engineering students, who specifically cite calculus as the reason for dropping out of engineering courses, the textbook improves student retention, motivation and success through application–driven, just–in–time engineering math instruction provided by engineering faculty.

This book presents the generative rules for formal written communication, in an engineering context, through the lens of mathematics. Aimed at engineering students headed for careers in industry and professionals needing a “just in time” writing resource, this pragmatic text covers all that engineers need to become successful workplace writers, and leaves out all pedagogical piffle they do not. Organized into three levels of skill-specific instruction, A Math-Based Writing System for Engineers: Sentence Algebra & Document Algorithms guides readers through the process of building accurate, precise sentences to structuring efficient, effective reports. The book’s indexed design provides convenient access for both selective and comprehensive readers, and is ideal for university students; professionals seeking a thorough, “left -brained” treatment of English grammar and “go to” document structures; and ESL engineers at all levels.

Economic, academic, and social forces are causing undergraduate schools to start a fresh examination of teaching effectiveness. Administrators face the complex task of developing equitable, predictable ways to evaluate, encourage, and reward good teaching in science, math, engineering, and technology. Evaluating, and Improving Undergraduate Teaching in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics offers a vision for systematic evaluation of teaching practices and academic programs, with recommendations to the various stakeholders in higher education about how to achieve change. What is good undergraduate teaching? This book discusses how to evaluate undergraduate teaching of science, mathematics, engineering, and technology and what characterizes effective teaching in these fields. Why has it been difficult for colleges and universities to address the question of teaching effectiveness? The committee explores the implications of differences between the research and teaching cultures-and how practices in rewarding researchers could be transferred to the teaching enterprise. How should administrators approach the evaluation of individual faculty members? And how should evaluation results be used? The committee discusses methodologies, offers practical guidelines, and points out pitfalls. Evaluating, and Improving Undergraduate Teaching in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics provides a blueprint for institutions ready to build effective evaluation programs for teaching in science fields.

In today's world, technology plays an increasingly important role. At the same time, mathematics is finding ever wider areas of application as we seek to understand more about the way in which nature works. Traditionally, engineering and science have relied on mathematical models for design and for the prediction of the behaviour of phenomena. Although widespread availability of computers and pocket calculators has reduced the need for long, tedious calculations to be carried out manually, it is still important to be able to perform simple calculations in order to have a feel for the processes involved. This book starts with a detailed synopsis of the material included in the authors' related textbook Foundation Mathematics (Wiley, 1998). It then expands the material in the areas of trigonometry, solution of equations and algebra. Vectors are covered next, then calculus is taken forward into geometrical applications. Matrix algebra and uncertainty follow before deeper analysis in chapters on integer variables, differential equations and complex numbers leads towards an appendix on mathematical modelling. Each chapter opens with a list of learning objectives and ends with a summary of key points and results. A generous supply of worked examples incorporating motivational applications is designed to build knowledge and skill. Drill and practice is essential and the exercises are graded in difficulty for reading and revision: the answers at the end of each chapter include helpful hints. Use of a pocket calculator is encouraged where appropriate. Many of the exercises can be validated by computer algebra and its use is strongly recommended where higher algebraic accuracy can be achieved and drudgery removed. The concise and focused approach of Mathematics in Engineering and Science will enable the student reader to approach the challenges of mathematics in a course at university level with confidence. Foundation Mathematics and Mathematics in Engineering and Science are written to be both complementary and independent; students may follow both books consecutively or may use just one, depending on their previous mathematical experience and the level of mathematical development that they wish to achieve

With the encroachment of the Internet into nearly all aspects of work and life, it seems as though information is everywhere. However, there is information and then there is correct, appropriate, and timely information. While we might love being able to turn to Wikipedia® for encyclopedia-like information or search Google® for the thousands of links on a topic, engineers need the best information, information that is evaluated, up-to-date, and complete. Accurate, vetted information is necessary when building new skyscrapers or developing new prosthetics for returning military veterans While the award-winning first edition of Using the Engineering Literature used a roadmap analogy, we now need a three-dimensional analysis reflecting the complex and dynamic nature of research in the information age. Using the Engineering Literature, Second Edition provides a guide to the wide range of resources available in all fields of engineering. This second edition has been thoroughly revised and features new sections on nanotechnology as well as green engineering. The information age has greatly impacted the way engineers find information. Engineers have an effect, directly and indirectly, on almost all aspects of our lives, and it is vital that they find the right information at the right time to create better products and processes. Comprehensive and up to date, with expert chapter authors, this book fills a gap in the literature, providing critical information in a user-friendly format.

This report reviews engineering's importance to human, economic, social and cultural development and in addressing the UN Millennium Development Goals. Engineering tends to be viewed as a national issue, but engineering knowledge, companies, conferences and journals, all demonstrate that it is as international as science. The report reviews the role of engineering in development, and covers issues including poverty reduction, sustainable development, climate change mitigation and adaptation. It presents the various fields of engineering around the world and is intended to identify issues and challenges facing engineering, promote better understanding of engineering and its role, and highlight ways of making engineering more attractive to young people, especially women.--Publisher's description.

This report is an integration of the reports, perspectives and concerns from four discussions groups: students, faculty, curricula, and experiential learning. Recommendations include: engineering educ. must encourage multiple thrusts for diversity, engineering educ. needs a new system of faculty rewards and incentives, assessment and evaluation processes must encourage desired expectations for both faculty and students; the changes needed for engineering educ. require comprehensive change across the campus, not just in the engineering college. Illustrated.
