Start at the beginning to introduce your students to MATLAB
MATLAB (R) For Engineers introduces students the MATLAB coding language. Developed out of Moore’s experience teaching MATLAB and other languages, the text meets students at their level of mathematical and computer sophistication. Starting with basic algebra, the book shows how MATLAB can be used to solve a wide range of engineering problems. Examples drawn from concepts introduced in early chemistry and physics classes and freshman and sophomore engineering classes stick to a consistent problem-solving methodology.
Students reading this text should have an understanding of college-level algebra and basic trigonometry. The text includes brief backgrounds when introducing new subjects like statistics and matrix algebra. Sections on calculus and differential equations are introduced near the end and can be used for additional reading material for students with more advanced mathematical backgrounds.
For all fluid mechanics, hydraulics, and related courses in Mechanical, Manufacturing, Chemical, Fluid Power, and Civil Engineering Technology and Engineering programs.
The leading applications-oriented approach to engineering fluid mechanics is now in full color, with integrated software, new problems, and extensive new coverage.
Now in full color with an engaging new design, Applied Fluid Mechanics, Seventh Edition, is the fully updated edition of the most popular applications-oriented approach to engineering fluid mechanics. It offers a clear and practical presentation of all basic principles of fluid mechanics (both statics and dynamics), tying theory directly to real devices and systems used in mechanical, chemical, civil, and environmental engineering. The 7th edition offers new real-world example problems and integrates the use of world-renowned PIPE-FLO (R) software for piping system analysis and design. It presents new procedures for problem-solving and design; more realistic and higher quality illustrations; and more coverage of many topics, including hose, plastic pipe, tubing, pumps, viscosity measurement devices, and computational fluid mechanics. Full-color images and color highlighting make charts, graphs, and tables easier to interpret organize narrative material into more manageable “chunks,” and make all of this text’s content easier to study.
Teaching and Learning Experience

Updated and refined to reflect the latest products, tools, and techniques: Contains updated data and analysis techniques, improved problem solving and design techniques, new content on many topics, and extensive new references.
For courses in Python programming. A clear and student-friendly introduction to the fundamentals of Python In Starting Out with Python, 4th Edition, Tony Gaddis’ accessible coverage introduces students to the basics of programming in a high-level language. Python, an easy-to-learn and increasingly popular object-oriented language, allows readers to become comfortable with the fundamentals of programming without the troublesome syntax that can be challenging for novices. With the knowledge acquired using Python, students gain confidence in their skills and learn to recognise the logic behind developing high-quality programs. Starting Out with Python discusses control structures, functions, arrays, and pointers before objects and classes. As with all Gaddis texts, clear and easy-to-read code listings, concise and practical real-world examples, focused explanations, and an abundance of exercises appear in every chapter. Updates to the 4th Edition include revised, improved problems throughout, and new Turtle Graphics sections that provide flexibility as assignable, optional material.
For courses in Intermediate Macroeconomics. A Unified Approach to Economic TheoryDemonstrating a balanced treatment of both classical and Keynesian economics, Macroecomomics presents macroeconomic theory in a big-picture way. Comprehensive coverage makes it easy for instructors to align chapters to fit their own syllabi, and the text helps instructors prepare students to analyze real macroeconomic data used by policy makers and researchers. This text uses a unified approach based on a single economics model that provides students with a clear understanding of macroeconomics and its classical and Keynesian assumptions. The Ninth Edition features new applications, boxes, and problems throughout and reflects recent events and developments in the field in light of recent crises in the United States and Europe. MyEconLab® not included. Students, if MyEconLab is a recommended/mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correct ISBN and course ID. MyEconLab should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information. MyEconLab is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment product designed to personalize learning and improve results. With a wide range of interactive, engaging, and assignable activities, students are encouraged to actively learn and retain tough course concepts.
For introductory courses in Financial Accounting taught from a more traditional preparer approach. Financial Accounting helps students nail the accounting cycle! The Global Edition of Financial Accounting is the ideal text for a first course in financial accounting with a focus on IFRS. Harrison helps students nail the accounting cycle up front in order to increase success and retention later on. The concepts and mechanics students learn in the critical ‘accounting cycle’ chapters are used consistently and repetitively-and with clear-cut details and explanations-throughout the remainder of the text, minimizing confusion. This edition features a new user-oriented approach along with many new problems, exercises, and analysis questions.
Preparing students to do research and understand what research can do. Basics of Social Research helps students understand what research can and cannot do, become better consumers of research, and learn why properly conducted research is important. This text teaches students to be better consumers of research results and understand how the research enterprise works, preparing them to conduct small research projects. Upon completing this text, students will gain an awareness of the capabilities and restrictions of research, and learn why properly conducted research is important. Using clear, accessible language and examples from real research, this text discusses both qualitative and quantitative approaches to social research, emphasizing the benefits of combining various approaches. Learning Goals Upon completing this book, readers should be able to: * Recognize that social research is simultaneously a very important enterprise and one that is not beyond you – you can understand it * Become better consumers and understand what research can and cannot do * Learn how to properly conducted research * Acquire a foundation for further learning about doing research and understand that this activity requires dedication, creativity, and mature judgment
