`What students have to say`
```“... a must-have for any student in food science engineering ... teaches students how to think like an engineer. Each chapter provides meaningful applications ... shows students both the approach and the mathematical solution needed to solve example problems.” "This workbook not only taught me which mathematical equations are needed to solve various food engineering problems, it helped me understand the analysis and approach needed when solving any engineering problem.  The practice questions helped me gain confidence in my problem-solving skills, and they make the coursework more interesting by relating it to real-world problems." Builds Mathematical Confidence  This text helps assess the mathematical reasoning skills of food science and engineering students and offers assistance for those who need a refresher. It supplies the necessary material to solve simple engineering problems so that students are prepared to face more rigorous challenges in class.
