"This book is an innovative introductory mathematics text for science & engineering students. The book presents the mathematical content of a traditional first year calculus course ; however, the subject matter is developed by modelling real life problems to demonstrate the way that mathematics pervades many aspects of our lives. The approach taken: 1/ Understands that mathematics should be introduced in a context tailored to its audience. 2/ Begins with a series of real life problems - an amusement park ride, an air disaster & problems caused by vibrating cables on a bridge. 3/ Uses the solutions to these problems as a means of providing a way of introducing mathematical concepts as they are needed & in a context suitable to the needs of that audience."
