This compact textbook provides a foundation in mathematics for STEM students entering university. The book helps students from different disciplines and backgrounds make the transition to university. Based on the author’s teaching for many years, the book can be used as a textbook and a resource for lecturers and professors. Its accessibility is such that it is can also be used by students in their final year in school before university and help them continue their mathematical studies at college. The book is designed so that students will return to the book repeatedly as their undergraduate careers progress. Although compact and concise, it loses no rigour. All the topics are carefully explained meaningfully, not just presented as a set of rules or rote-learned procedures.
