Steven Chapra’s Applied Numerical Methods with MATLAB, third edition, is written for engineering and science students who need to learn numerical problem solving. Theory is introduced to inform key concepts which are framed in applications and demonstrated using MATLAB. The book is designed for a one-semester or one-quarter course in numerical methods typically taken by undergraduates.
The third edition features new chapters on Eigenvalues and Fourier Analysis and is accompanied by an extensive set of m-files and instructor materials.
The new Mathematics General syllabus describes two pathways that start in Year 11. Even though both pathways share a common Preliminary course, students taking each pathway have specific learning needs, so we have published two levels of text for both Years 11 and 12. New Century Maths 11 (Pathway 1) has been written for the new Mathematics General course commencing in 2013. This book caters for students who have completed Stage 5.1 by the end of Year 10 and are headed towards the workforce or further training after school. The book encourages the development of practical mathematical skills for life. It supports a vocational pathway that is content-endorsed but not HSC-examinable. This book includes access to the NelsonNet password-protected website which contains student and teacher resources for schools that use New Century Maths 11 as a core resource. To download a sample chapter, Earning money, click the Download Sample Material button. The corresponding Year 12 text, New Century Maths 12 General Mathematics 1 HSC Course, will be available in mid 2013.

Instructors love Numerical Methods for Engineers because it makes teaching easy! Students love it because it is written for them–with clear explanations and examples throughout. The text features a broad array of applications that span all engineering disciplines. The sixth edition retains the successful instructional techniques of earlier editions. Chapra and Canale’s unique approach opens each part of the text with sections called Motivation, Mathematical Background, and Orientation. This prepares the student for upcoming problems in a motivating and engaging manner. Each part closes with an Epilogue containing Trade-Offs, Important Relationships and Formulas, and Advanced Methods and Additional References. Much more than a summary, the Epilogue deepens understanding of what has been learned and provides a peek into more advanced methods. Helpful separate Appendices. “Getting Started with MATLAB” abd “Getting Started with Mathcad” which make excellent references. Numerous new or revised problems drawn from actual engineering practice, many of which are based on exciting new areas such as bioengineering. The expanded breadth of engineering disciplines covered is especially evident in the problems, which now cover such areas as biotechnology and biomedical engineering. Excellent new examples and case studies span asll areas of engineering disciplines; the students using this text will be able to apply their new skills to their chosen field. Users will find use of software packages, specifically MATLAB(R), Excel(R) with VBA and Mathcad(R). This includes material on developing MATLAB(R) m-files and VBA macros.
