Engineering Fundamentals & Problem Solving presents a complete introduction into the engineering field and remains the most comprehensive textbook for an introductory engineering course. This text will help students develop the skills needed to solve open-ended problems in SI and customary units while presenting solutions in a logical manner. Students are introduced to subject areas, common to engineering disciplines, that require the application of fundamental engineering concepts. Engineering Fundamentals & Problem Solving provides students a realistic opportunity to learn to apply engineering principles to the solution of engineering problems. Furthermore, the author's approach keeps students on task toward an engineering career by showing how the materials apply to the student's school, life, and career.
McGraw-Hill Education's Connect, is also available as an optional, add on item. Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, how they need it, so that class time is more effective. Connect allows the professor to assign homework, quizzes, and tests easily and automatically grades and records the scores of the student's work. Problems are randomized to prevent sharing of answers an may also have a multi-step solution which helps move the students' learning along if they experience difficulty.
