Many students who embark on a GCE A-level course in mathematics choose the combination of pure mathematics with applications to mechanics. The pure mathematics content of most such syllabuses is covered in "Mathematics - The Core Course for A-Level", while this book provides the companion mechanics course. It also contains a section on probability, a topic included in many A-level mathematics syllabuses. An appreciation of the properties of vectors is introduced at an early stage and, wherever appropriate, problems are solved using vector methods. Worked examples are incorporated in the text to illustrate each main development of a topic, and a set of straightforward problems follows each section. A selection of more challenging questions is given in a miscellaneous exercise at the end of most chapters. Multiple-choice exercise are also included on many topics.
