Mathematics for Engineers – Good courses, textbooks etc?

  1. Feb 24, 2016 #1
    I am trying to work my way through Stephen Pope's "Turbulent Flows". I'm finding that my Achilles heel (as has been throughout my undergraduate degree) is maths. Since this book is essentially applied maths, I'm finding it difficult.

    So I'd like to simultaneously work through a course in mathematics, specifically designed for engineering. A quick search on the internet reveals hundreds of different takes and approaches to teaching this subject.

    My own preference would be something which incorporates physical examples (rather than working strictly in the mathematical domain). I enjoy the use of analogies, visual aids, memory aids etc. I also appreciate something which is well categorised (to create a kind of empty map which would be filled as one works though the course/textbook).

    What would you recommend?

    Thanks in advance.
