Just-in-time presentation of engineering math concepts. Applications-driven presentation provides motivation for engineering math by using realistic engineering problems. Designed to be taught by engineering faculty, not math faculty. Can serve as a primary text for a first-year engineering math course allowing students to advance without first completing the required calculus sequence. This course doesn't replace calculus. It simply allows students to advance through introductory engineering courses while they gain the maturity and motivation to succeed in calculus at a slower pace.
