Additional Information

Book Details


Without a basic understanding of maths, students of any science discipline are ill-equipped to tackle new problems or to apply themselves to novel situations. In this book, Keith Gregson covers a few essential topics that will help encourage an understanding of mathematics so that the student can build on their understanding and apply it to their own scientific discipline.
