MATHS FOR CHEMISTRY
OXFORD UNIV PRESS
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 the student’s confidence by leading them through the subject in a steady, progressive way. Opening with an introduction to the ‘language’ of maths and essential rules of algebra, the book goes on to cover powers, indices, logs, and exponential functions, graphical functions, and trigonometry, before leading the student through both differentiation and integration. With its modular structure, the book presents the 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 which all chemistry students should master.
