Just the Maths (A.J.Hobson)
"Just the Maths" authored by the late Tony Hobson, former Senior Lecturer in Mathematics of the School of Mathematical and Information Sciences at Coventry University, is a collection of separate mathematics units, in chronological topic-order, intended for foundation level and first year degree level in higher education where mathematics is a service discipline e.g. engineering.

Quick Reference (1)

The sine rule and cosine rule
This leaflet states the sine and cosine rules and gives examples of their use. (Engineering Maths First Aid Kit 4.6)

Maths EG Teacher Interface
The teacher interface for Maths EG which may be used for computer-aided assessment of maths, stats and numeracy from GCSE to undergraduate level 2. These resources have been made available under a Creative Common licence by Martin Greenhow and Abdulrahman Kamavi, Brunel University. Teachers need to register (top right of screen) and thereafter login to use the system, after which they may use it to compose their own tests by selecting (specifically or randomly) questions from the entire database of questions. Instructions are available from the title page.

a cos x + b sin x = R cos(x-alpha) - an Animation
This mathtutor animation shows how the formula a cos x + b sin x = R cos(x-alpha) may be derived using right angled triangles. This resource is released under a Creative Commons license Attribution-Non-Commercial-No Derivative Works and the copyright is held by Skillbank Solutions Ltd.
Triangle formulae
A common mathematical problem is to find the angles or lengths of the sides of a triangle when some, but not all, of these quantities are known. It is also useful to be able to calculate the area of a triangle from some of this information.
