BTEC First Award in Engineering Student Book - Our BTEC First in Engineering Award Book covers Units 1, 2, 5, 6 7 and 8 so learners have relevant and specific content to complete the new next generation Pearson BTEC First Award in Engineering for level 2 learners. If learners are studying other sizes of this qualification they might prefer our Full Edition*. - Provides all the underpinning knowledge and understanding needed at level 2 to help learners prepare for the course. - Activities in each unit provide support and guidance for learners, and can be used in the classroom or for independent work. - The new BTEC Assessment Zone guides learners through the challenges of both internal and external assessment with grading tips and support for external assessment. * From 2012, Pearson's BTEC First qualifications have been under re-development, so schools and colleges could be teaching the existing 2010 specification or the new next generation 2012-2013 specification. There are different Student Books to support each specification. If learners are unsure, they should check with their teacher or tutor.Units covered: 1: The Engineered World 2: Investigating an Engineered Product 5: Engineering Materials 6: Computer-aided Engineering 7: Machining Techniques 8: Electronic Circuit Design and Construction
Unlike most engineering maths texts, this book does not assume a firm grasp of GCSE maths, and unlike low-level general maths texts, the content is tailored specifically to the needs of engineers. The result is a unique book written for engineering students that takes a starting point below GCSE level. Basic Engineering Mathematics is therefore ideal for students of a wide range of abilities, especially for those who find the theoretical side of mathematics difficult. Now in its fifth edition, Basic Engineering Mathematics is an established textbook, with the previous edition selling nearly 7500 copies. All students that require a fundamental knowledge of mathematics for engineering will find this book essential reading. The content has been designed primarily to meet the needs of students studying Level 2 courses, including GCSE Engineering, the Diploma, and the BTEC First specifications. Level 3 students will also find this text to be a useful resource for getting to grips with essential mathematics concepts, because the compulsory topics in BTEC National and A Level Engineering courses are also addressed.
Motorsport is not just about the spectacle of some of the world's most popular and famous sporting events-it also plays a crucial role in developing new techniques and technologies. Getting a qualification in motorsport could be the first step towards a career in one of the most exciting and challenging sectors of high performance engineering. Basic Motorsport Engineering is an essential read for students on Motorsports Engineering courses. This book covers each unit in the IMI (Institute of the Motor Industry) and EAL (Engineering Awards Ltd) level 2 courses in full, and the chapters can be easily matched to the BTEC First course structure. It covers introductory topics in motorsport, from vehicle science and mathematics right through to the basics of vehicle maintenance as well as pre- and post-race inspections. Written by an experienced teacher and author with decades of involvement within the industry, Basic Motorsport Engineering is packed with detailed illustrations and learning tips, making it the perfect textbook for you to make the first move into this most dynamic of industries.
This volume presents the basics of electricity and component types, and introduces students to practical work involving basic electronics. This text is intended for a wide range of introductory courses in electronics, technology, physics and engineering. The coverage includes GCSE Electronics, GCSE Design & Technology, Engineering GCSE and City & Guilds competence-based courses such as Level 2 NVQs. The author's approach is student-centred with self-test features to check understanding, including numerous activities suitable for practicals, homework and other assignments.
This text covers all the mandatory and popular optional units of the IMI Technical Certificates and NVQ Level 1 & 2 syllabus, from health and safety regulations to fault finding and replacing components. Fully updated, it also has vehicle maintenance procedures integrated throughout, making it the indispensable first classroom and workshop text for all students of motor vehicle engineering, apprentices and keen amateurs. The text is made accessible to all levels of ability through its clear, logical approach, excellent illustrations and step-by-step development of theory and practice. There is guidance on preparing portfolios of evidence, and practical exercises are included to demonstrate actual workshop practice.
This book is "a truly introductory level mathematics text, written specifically for students of building and construction. [It] focuses on construction topics not found in traditional technician-level mathematics textbooks - essential to students learning how to apply mathematics in building and construction ; content matched to the learning outcomes of CITB/City & Guilds and Edexcel construction courses at Levels 2 and 3 ; technically accurate construction images support the introduction of mathematics topics by providing visual representation of key construction scenarios." -- back cover.
