Description
Foundation Maths has been written for students taking higher and further education courses who may not have specialised in mathematics on post-16 qualifications and need to use mathematical and statistical tools in their courses. It is ideally suited to those studying marketing, business studies, management, science, engineering, social science, geography, combined studies and design. It will be particularly useful for those who lack confidence and who need careful, steady guidance in mathematical methods. For those whose mathematical expertise is already established, the book will be a helpful revision and reference guide. The style of the book also makes it suitable for self-study and distance learning.
