Rattan and Klingbeil s Introductory Mathematics for Engineering Applications is designed to help improve engineering student success through application-driven, just-in-time engineering math instruction. Intended to be taught by engineering faculty rather than math faculty, the text emphasizes using math to solve engineering problems instead of focusing on derivations and theory. This text implements an applied approach to teaching math concepts that are essential to introductory engineering courses that has been proven to improve the retention of students in engineering majors from the first to second year and beyond.
