This tutorialstyle textbook develops the basic mathematical tools needed by first and second year undergraduates to solve problems in the physical sciences. Students gain handson experience through hundreds of worked examples, selftest questions and homework problems. Each chapter includes a summary of the main results, definitions and formulae. Over 270 worked examples show how to put the tools into practice. Around 170 selftest questions in the footnotes and 300 endofsection exercises give students an instant check of their understanding. More than 450 endofchapter problems allow students to put what they have just learned into practice. Hints and outline answers to the oddnumbered problems are given at the end of each chapter. Complete solutions to these problems can be found in the accompanying Student Solutions Manual. Fullyworked solutions to all problems, passwordprotected for instructors, are available at www.cambridge.org/foundation.
